Ingredient 101: Artemisia

Ingredient 101: Artemisia


Artemisia, also known as Mugwort, not only sounds magical but has amazing benefits that can heal the skin! This is a gentle ingredient that helps soothe and refine the skin. 

What type of skin benefits the most from Artemisia?

Every skin type can benefit from Artemisia Extract. For oily and combination skin types, this ingredient will balance oil production, moisturize the skin without feeling heavy, and help heal acne. Dry skin types would also enjoy Artemisia because it has calming and soothing properties that can help with redness or itchiness caused by dry patches on the skin. Dry skin types also tend to have compromised skin barriers and Artemisia contains Vitamin A to help skin cell turnover, providing a Collagen boost and providing anti-aging properties to help the skin recover.

What benefits does it have on the skin?

Artemisia helps calm and soothe redness on the skin while also healing acne/breakouts. It’s also packed with Vitamin A (great for skin renewal and regeneration) and Vitamin C (a skin brightening and protecting ingredient)! With all the benefits and skin-saving components infused in Artemisia, this ingredient is perfect for preventing fine lines and wrinkles.
