Description

Eyebright hydrolate - Euphrasia officinalis Flower/Leaf/Stem Water (extract) - 250ml

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY - ANTISEPTIC - ASTRINGENT - DECONGESTANT - SOOTHING - TONING – REFRESHING

Flower Tales Eyebright Hydrolate is obtained from the aerial parts (flowers, leaves and stems) of Euphrasia officinalis (Euphrasia rostkoviana). Eyebright extract contains polyphenols, phenolic acids (such as caffeic acid), flavonoids (apigenin, luteolin, kaempferol, rhamnetin, quercetin), tanninsiridoids and hydroxycinnamic acids. Thanks to this precious chemical composition, Eyebright extract is used in herbal medicine for its anti-inflammatory, astringent, decongestant and antiseptic properties. Eyebright is traditionally used as a poultice for eyestrain and redness or swelling caused by conjunctivitis and blepharitis. The same properties make it effective at counteracting eye bags and dark circles, especially when used in combination with Chamomile or Witch Hazel.

Olfactory Note: Heart

FLOWER TALES QUALITY: Flower Tales Eyebright Hydrolate is not obtained by distillation, like most flower waters, but by ultrasound assisted extraction. This modern extraction process gives a herbal water that is richer in active compounds, without damaging those that are thermolabile (easily destroyed by heat).

No alcohol or solvents are used in the process: only water. Ultrasound assisted extraction uses less energy than distillation and is a sustainable, environmentally-friendly technology.

No extraction process is substitute for quality of the raw material: Flower Tales has selected a supplier that sources only the youngest aerial parts of wild Euphrasia Offcinalis plants growing in the Piedmont region of Italy. Plants are picked from July to October and parts that do not meet the stringent selection criteria are discarded, ensuring the highest quality. The extraction ratio is 1:5.

Flower Tales Eyebright Hydrolate is a natural product and its bacterial count must be kept in check with the use of preservatives and stabilisers. A completely “green” solution such as benzyl alcohol+sodium benzoate+potassium sorbate could be poorly tolerated by some individuals, especially for an everyday product such as floral water. We therefore opted for a mix containing phenoxyethanol, which while not considered 100% natural, is completely safe and well tolerated even by very sensitive skin. For transparency, we show here the full list of ingredients, including those in minimal quantities which would not normally be listed: Euphrasia officinalis Flower/Leaf/Stem Water Flower Water, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Tetrasodium glutamate diacetate
