Welcome back to another Ingredient 101. Today we are talking “Artemisia”.
You might’ve never heard of this ingredient before, but you’ll wish you did!
Artemisia is also known as Mugwort. Not only does it sound magical but has magical benefits that can heal the skin! This is a gentle ingredient that helps soothe and refine the skin.
What type of skin benefits the most from Artemisia?
Every skin type can benefit from this ingredient. For oily and combination skin types, it will balance oil production, moisturize the skin without feeling heavy, and help heal acne. Dry skin types would also enjoy Artemisia because it has calming and soothing properties that can help with redness or inflammation. Dry skin also tends to have a compromised barrier and this ingredient contains Vitamin A that helps skin cell turnover, providing a Collagen boost and anti-aging properties for skin recovery.
Ps: It’s mild enough to be used on sensitive skin 😉
What benefits does it have on the skin?
For ages, Artemisia has been used for its healing and soothing properties. The extract has a miraculous effect on aging and fine lines. It contains Beta-Carotene that helps deliver Vitamin A straight to the skin cells. It also helps hydrate the skin and reduce inflammation. The antioxidants present in it also help repair and protect the skin.
