There was a great study on PubMed.gov about Helichrysum essential oil. Here’s the summary posted on the website:
“We conclude that the anti-inflammatory activity of Helichrysum italicum can be explained as a free-radical scavenger, effective against bacteria”.
It’s the star ingredient in the Bella Virtu Organics anti-aging skincare line for that very reason. We believe it’s an extremely effective oil that helps slow down the aging process.
Helichrysum is a rare and expensive essential oil to source organically, and not a popular ingredient in skincare products. You’ll find it in our products though, because it works to slow down the aging process and deliver visible results!
Helichrysum italicum works on skin conditions in which inflamed tissue needs to be calmed down and regenerated. It’s an incredible essential oil and is fantastic for eczema, psoriasis, and refining skin tone by reducing sun and age spots, as well as many other kinds of skin-healing conditions.
This gem has potent restorative properties known to speed the healing of wounds, and dramatically improve the appearance of skin. When it comes to skincare and essential oils, Helichrysum is one of the top performing healing oils in the entire world!
