What it is
Bisabolol can be derived from the German chamomile plant or made synthetically in a lab.
What it does
Bisabolol is an anti-irritant that soothes skin. It can also make dry and damaged skin look supple and smooth, and reduces flakiness.
In addition, it can enhance the penetration of other ingredients and can even be used to impart a certain fragrance to a product.
Although rare, allergies to Bisabolol can occur.
