The active ingredient inside this oil is called saponins, which have been proven to extert an anti-inflammatory action very much like the workings of cortisone. Herbalists recommend this herb in topical form as an excellent alternative to cortisone creams because it's claimed to be milder in action and doesn't hold the side effects that cortisone does. Possibly due to this same active, many find that incorporating this oil into a lotion or cream that is designed to target cellulite - will greatly help reduce its appearance with continued ongoing use.
We use a cold process infusion, we never heat treat our oils. We infuse organic plant material into a first pressed, organic extra virgin olive oil. Because of the type of oil we infuse into, there is the typical (strong) scent that is associated with cold pressed olive oil - so please take that into consideration when ordering this product.
INCI: Stellaria media (chickweed) herb (and) extra virgin Olea europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil
