European White Water Lily is a majestic white flower with a golden center and dark green leaves. Growing in calm water, the White Lily has long symbolized freshness, beauty, tranquility and serenity. In traditional medicine, practitioners used the roots and stalks along with the flower, though the flower was considered the most potent part. This extract has exceptional properties and benefits to the skin: anti-erythema and deeply moisturizing effects. It decreases discomfort resulting from irritated, sensitive, stressed skin - including burning and itching sensation. Because of this, water lily fits perfectly in any sensitive-skin formula.
