Our Chamomile Treatment Oil was developed to create an exclusive service-only step or item for a spa facial protocol we developed. Given its success, it later filled a retail void in our retail assortment.
The spa part was a challenge since we wanted an exclusive item for a spa facial protocol or a step in our basic European Facial to deep cleanse and moisturize. The Chamomile Treatment Oil was the step before extractions to lubricate the skin and lend itself gently and without irritation to shiatsu facial massage for lymphatic drainage. Chamomile calms and soothes and is gentle (and smells beautiful) as a precursor to the more invasive extractions.
This product is a simple and pure formula of chamomile, vitamins E, C and other wonderful oils such as soya and sesame. As such, it is a general, all-purpose oil that absorbs well and nourishes deeply. During development—as with most of our products—this item needed to address my own concerns for rosacea, eczema and seborrhea. Because of these concerns, the formula is great for the face as a moisturizer, for the scalp and hair to add moisture and shine and smooth fly-away, for the body as a bath oil, after bath all-over body (and face) moisturizer, cuticle oil, and massage oil.
Finally, it smells divine and feels simply luxurious. For us, we are a skincare brand first, and, to date, all of our moisturizers are oil-free. This item creates a new category to round out our assortment and add value to our existing treatments based on preference or need.
Phew. I thought I could keep it short and sweet, but, I just love it so much I needed to give you the whole story.
