In our lab, we use an old-fashioned process of extracting the beautiful medicinal properties of chamomile flowers.
It is called an infusion. By letting chamomile flowers "infuse" for six weeks in a base oil, the flowers release their valuable anti-inflammatory, antibacterial properties! We then strain the mixture resulting in a bright gold oil that we add to our facial serums. Renowned for helping calm redness, irritation, wounds, burns, and counteracting sun damage.
Chamomile's soothing effect and antibacterial properties combine to calm acne breakouts and kill the bacteria at the root cause. When making this infusion, I like to use apricot oil as a base. Kernel Oil is a crucial ingredient in Vika's organic skincare collection. This exquisite oil is mild and moisturizing and quickly absorbs into your skin. An excellent emollient for hydrating dry, sensitive skin, calming inflammation, and irritation, which makes it useful in relieving eczema symptoms. This oil is rich in potassium and copper, vitamins A, C, E. Antioxidants in apricots protect skin from free radicals, which often lead to premature aging. In our proprietary formulas, we add organic Chamomile infused Apricot oil to Earthly Elixir and Sea Buckthorn Serum.
