Lonicera Flower Extract
What it is
Lonicera Flower is the genus name for roughly 180 species of honeysuckle flower. Honeysuckle is renowned for its colorful, fragrant flowers and variously colored fruit, indicating the presence of complex phytochemicals- natural compounds in plants with antimicrobial properties! We use two forms of Locinera in our products, Lonicera capifolium (goat leafed honeysuckle), and Lonicera japonica (Japanese honeysuckle).
What it does
Honeysuckle extract is a natural, plant-based preservative that is strongly anti-bacterial and anti-viral. In place of artificial parabens, we've used honeysuckle as an all-natural preservative to prevent the growth of bacteria and mold. (You’re welcome!) We believe it's a safer, gentler choice. Honeysuckle extract also boasts rich antioxidant properties that help create a more safe and shelf-stable product. But even more, we love that it's anti-inflammatory and works hand-in-hand with other plant-based extracts and oils to soothe and calm irritated, inflamed skin.
