Heliami™ Sea Fennel EC

Add to favourites
Sea Fennel grows near coasts, especially along the Mediterranean, the Atlantic, the Channel and the Black Sea. This small, umbelliferous, hardy plant grows both in the cavities in cliffs and on sand dunes. Its habitat is the edge of high tides, where the sea spray lands. Sea fennel is hence often the last plant to be spotted before reaching the sea. Its creeping roots can reach 5m in length. They solidly anchor themselves in the crevices in the rocks. Sea Fennel was a very popular medicinal plant right from the beginning of ancient times. It was later left aside, except by sailors who took tones with them to sea to prevent scurvy (thanks to its richness in Vitamin C). Sea fennel was also believed to improve sailors’ sight. The name Sea fennel comes from this similar, though slightly saltier, taste. The oily extract of sea fennel contains lipids and some vitamins and carotenes with regenerating and antioxidant properties. Like other Heliami™ ingredients, this organic botanical is extracted in high-oleic acid sunflower oil, which is more effective at preserving the skin barrier integrity and preventing skin dehydration compared to conventional sunflower oil.
