Lavender, As a Secret Beauty Component
Since ancient times, lavender has received the status of a medicinal plant that prolongs youth, protects against evil spirits, gives harmony and tranquility, and also has the magical ability to attract wealth.
Today, lavender is one of the most popular cosmetic components in various forms and manifestations. Beauty trends are cyclical, and if ten years ago no one paid attention to this fragrant plant, today the medicinal potion of the Mediterranean is again on the wave of its popularity. In cosmetology, lavender is most often used in the format of an essential oil, the main components of which are linalool, coumarins, phytosterols, flavonoids, triterpene compounds, ursolic acid and tannins.
Lavender essential oil, unlike analogues, goes well with other cosmetic ingredients, enhancing the effect of the finished beauty product. Most effective in combination with nettle extract, chamomile and juniper oil.
Creams, lotions and body sprays have become the main manifestation of lavender in the cosmetology industry, which are suitable for dry and sensitive skin, as well as heal cracks and wounds. If your skin is prone to rashes and acne, you should pay attention to cleansers with lavender extract, as well as matting creams with aromatic oil. Body scrubs with this component free the pores from toxins and aggressive environmental factors. Faced with hair loss or dandruff, it is worth paying attention to the care for curls and scalp with lavender, which stimulates blood microcirculation and prevents brittle ends.
