Soothes and protects
Chlorophyll absorbs light in the chloroplasts of plant cells and drives the reaction of photosynthesis.
It uses energy from the light to fix carbon dioxide into carbohydrate and then uses this in order to grow. Studies have suggested that chlorophyll has protective and healing qualities.
Through using chlorophyll, we have found that it helps to balance the skin. Chlorophyllin (Cl 75810) works with other fresh ingredients to balance the skin's sebum production. It also creates a distinctive green colour in our products.
The name chlorophyll is derived from the ancient Greek words chloros‚ and phyllon, meaning green and leaf respectively. The chlorophyll we use in our products is extracted from alfalfa grass. This grass was used in Arabia as food for their horses before it came to Europe in the 1600s.
Due to its excellent mineral, vitamin and amino acid content, alfalfa is highly beneficial for the skin. It is rich in chlorophyll, making it ideal for extraction. It is GMO free.
