I is for Immortelle (Helichrysum): The ABCs of Skincare


We’re back with another enlightening chapter in our ABCs of Skincare series. Today we’re unfolding the secrets of a miraculous plant that goes by an ethereal name—Immortelle, also known as Helichrysum. Indeed, this golden flower is not just a pretty face; it’s packed with potent properties that can elevate your skincare game.

What is Immortelle (Helichrysum)?

Native to the Mediterranean, Immortelle is a flowering plant, scientifically called Helichrysum italicum. With golden yellow petals that never fade—even when dried—this plant truly lives up to its poetic name, meaning “immortal” or “everlasting” in Latin. But its real beauty lies in its extensive range of benefits for your skin.

Why is Immortelle a Skincare Marvel?

Anti-Aging Powerhouse

Rich in antioxidants, flavonoids, and other potent compounds that combat premature aging, it helps boost collagen production and improves skin elasticity, giving your skin a youthful glow.

Reduces Inflammation

Do you have sensitive, inflamed, irritated, or even wounded skin? Helichrysum is a savior. It has significant anti-inflammatory properties, calming redness and puffiness. Plus it absolutely smells amazing!

Evens Skin Tone
