Bisabolol [(-)-alpha-bisabolol)], also known as Alpha Bisabolol Oil or levomenol, is the primary constituent of German Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla or Matricaria recutita), and is also found naturally in the bark of the Candeia (Vanillosmopsis erythropappa) tree of Brazil, which accounts for most of the world’s production of this ingredient. It is a terpene and is classed as an alcohol. Our product is produced from the bark of the Candeia tree which is harvested in a sustainable manner.
