INCI: Triglycerides of Caprylic/Capric Acid (and) Aloysia Triphylla (Lemon Verbena) Leaf Extract
Also known as lemon beebrush, this South American plant has graced the perfume houses and culinary kitchens of European royalty since the 17th century. The herb leaves were used in cooking, and the perfume houses for their lemon scent and flavor. By the end of the 18th century, lemon verbena was common in London greenhouses and considered essential for any fragrant bouquet and would remain popular for the next century.
In skincare, lemon verbena has been used for not only scenting but its skin-soothing properties. Many have claimed that using lemon verbena will calm the mind, reduce inflammation, and even nourish the skin.
