Meadowsweet extract

Meadowsweet contains salicylic acid which is a natural exfoliator and acts as an anti-inflammatory on skin reducing redness, itchiness and rashes so it can be useful for any kind of rash condition such as eczema and psoriasis.  The salicylic acid also has the ability to reduce the tenderness of skin where these conditions are troublesome.  Meadowsweet extract also has helpful astringent properties making it useful to tone and tighten the skin.  

The Meadowsweet plant is a perennial herb in the family Rosaceae and grows in damp meadows, native to Europe and Western Asia.  Referred to as the Queen of the meadow, Meadowseet possesses a pleasant flavour and is sometimes used in vinegars, wine and beer. It is a traditional remedy for an acidic stomach, and the fresh root is often used in homeopathic preparations. The dried flowers are used in potpouri. 

It's also refered to as Pride of the Meadow, Meadow-wort, Meadow Queen, Lady of the Meadow, Meadsweet and Bridewort.
