Peucedanum graveolens (dill) extract

A plant extract with research showing it can improve skin’s resiliency and work as an antioxidant. Dill also has a calming action on sensitised skin.

Dill is a rich source of minerals such as iron and potassium as well as beta-carotene. Its anti-ageing benefits have been looked at in vitro and in vivo, on what’s known as dermal equivalents (human skin samples). Ongoing research is showing that dill is among the more interesting, multi-beneficial ingredients to consider for diminishing signs of ageing.
