Korean cosmetics line Dear Dahlia uses natural flower extract

10:04 PM September 18, 2018

Throughout the world’s history, this flower extract has been used to soothe inflamed and irritated skin, calm rashes, and treat small wounds.

New Korean wellness cosmetics line Dear Dahlia uses all-natural ingredients, including its patented Dahlia Variabilis™ flower extract. Throughout the world’s history, this flower extract has been used to soothe inflamed and irritated skin, calm rashes, and treat small wounds.

Before the 20th century, women were known to use burnt matchsticks to darken their eyelashes, mercury to blush their cheeks, or lead to whiten their faces. While these practices are incomprehensible at present, many harmful chemicals that can irritate and cause serious damage to the skin are still found in today’s cosmetics.

For example, BHAs, parabens, retinol variants, and Hydroquinone bleach have all been proven to cause adverse effects, including severe and lasting skin damage, scarring, and a painful burning sensation. Unfortunately, these ingredients are often overlooked because they are less familiar to the average consumer.

While it is difficult to scrutinize every cosmetics label for harmful ingredients, opting for all-natural, organic products is the best way to minimize risks. There has been a growing and extensive demand for these types of products among consumers.
