*Note:

This natural chemical is partly responsible for the anti-inflammatory effect of chamomile essential oil, but will not lead to sensitization or allergic reactions. Bisabolol is useful in the treatment of acne and can also help with rosacea.

Each tube is enough for about 8 fl oz of cream or lotion at approximately 1% concentration (2 mL in 240 mL cream), so we recommend using 1 mL in 4oz of cream. Use in your favorite cream or add to our Canvas Base Cream or our European Cream.

Do not use at concentrations over 1%. This active is not suitable for gels because it is not soluble in water.

Bisabolol (alpha).

α-(-)-Bisabolol is an unsaturated monocyclic sesquiterpene alcohol, partly responsible for the anti-inflammatory effect of chamomile essential oil. Bisabolol will not lead to sensitization or allergic reactions like essential oils can. Bisabolol is useful in the treatment of acne and it may also help with rosacea.

Bisabolol is well absorbed and also facilitates the absorption of other ingredients. When applied to skin that has been damaged by laser treatment, bisabolol increased skin hydration, surface lipids, skin elasticity, and decreased TEWL (trans-epidermal water loss, i.e. increased the integrity of the skin barrier).

The anti-inflammatory effect of bisabolol is comparable to corticosteroid compounds, with the clear advantage that it lacks the side effects that should make the use of corticosteroids (like hydrocortisone or dexamethasone) a last resort.

    I used this with allantoin and it helps a lot with acne breakouts for my teens, occasionally myself. Love it, too!
