Renowned for its harmonizing effects, Melissa (lemon balm) balances sensitive combination skin while extracts of anthyllis, carrot, witch hazel and English daisy soothe, soften and even the complexion. Shine is controlled and skin is calmed, smoothed and moisturized.
Ingredient Spotlight of Melissa Officinalis Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract: Common in herb gardens, lemon balm grows to be a strong, bushy plant about 60 to 90 cm. tall with oval, intensely green leaves with serrated edges. It forms the very picture of lush vegetation. Growing in tiers, the leaves emit a lemony fragrance when rubbed. The key ingredient in Dr.Hauschka Melissa Day Cream, lemon balm is known for its mediating properties and is able to help skin to balance between the opposing forces within oily, dry and sensitive areas of skin. Melissa’s ability to bridge great differences can also be seen from its natural habitat. It prefers moist, well-drained soil, but can also handle dryness. It needs sun, but can still thrive in partial shade.
