Chrysanthellum Indicum (Golden Chamomile) Extract description

Chrysanthellum indicum is a form of chamomile that, like other forms, has soothing properties when applied to skin. Golden chamomile seems to have a stronger anti-redness effect due to its unique mix of soothing compounds, all of which can be helpful if you struggle with visibly reddened or extra-sensitive skin. Amounts of 0.5% have been shown to visibly reduce skin discolourations, most likely due to flavonoid compounds luteolin and acacetin-7-O-rutinoside; however, this study was in-vitro and looked at tyrosinase (a melanin-fueling enzyme) formation on mushrooms, not human skin. Still, it's an intriguing possibility.
