Nymphaea Lotus Flower Extract (Blue Lotus)

Nymphaea caerulea, more commonly known as blue lotus flower, blue Egyptian lotus or blue water lily, is a type of water lily that has long been used for its many health and skin benefits. It’s been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years as a natural aphrodisiac, skin care, and anxiety reliever.
Originating from along the Nile River, in Egypt, Blue Lotus is one of the sole ingredients that works as a calming.
Used in skincare, blue lotus flower extract can act as a natural moisturizer to help improve the look and feel of dry, rough or flaky skin. Further, this ingredient is suitable for nearly all skin types, as it can also help to balance the skin’s oil content, which may help to combat acne blemishes. Blue lotus flower extract is considered non-comedogenic, meaning that it won’t clog your pores. When searching for the most effective skincare products, it’s important to choose non-comedogenic ingredients to ensure that your skincare routine doesn’t backfire and worsen your skin condition. The two main compounds responsible for the flower’s psychoactive and medicinal effects are apomorphine and nuciferine.
