Blue Tansy - SKIN CARE'S HOLY GRAIL INGREDIENT
May 13, 2022 | withSimplicity
What looks beautiful and delivers beautiful results? Blue Tansy.You’ve probably noticed a lot of blue moisturizers and serums on the store shelves recently. Well, it’s not a coincidence. Though it’s been around for a while, Blue Tansy Oil is becoming a staple ingredient used by estheticians, aromatherapists, and skincare manufacturers worldwide because of its beneficial properties.And we’re obsessed with it.
WHAT IS BLUE TANSY?
Blue Tansy (scientifically known as Tanacetum Annuum) is actually a yellow flower from the Mediterranean region. (These days, it is mainly harvested in Morocco as it was almost wiped from existence due to its popularity).Now, Blue Tansy should not be confused with the Tansy Flower (Tanacetum Vulgara), which is very toxic to humans. Best to steer clear of that one.
WHAT MAKES BLUE TANSY OIL BLUE?
Like we said, Blue Tansy comes from a yellow flower, but when the oil is created, the color changes.When the flower is distilled, a chemical inside the flower called “chamazulene” is released, and when heated, it transforms into the beautiful, deep azure blue that we’ve come to love and crave.
WHY IS BLUE TANSY SKIN CARE SO POPULAR?
Not only does Blue Tansy Oil smell amazing (we like to describe it as a warm, grounded citrus… if that makes any sense), but it’s been used for years in skin care for its calming and healing properties.
1. Anti-inflammatory + Antioxidant
Whether your skin is irritated or puffy, Blue Tansy can help calm it down and help restore a youthful glow. It’s the relief for your problematic skin that you’ve been looking for. (Perfect for Eczema!)
2. COMBATS BACTERIAL ACNE
Blue Tansy helps clear clogged pores, kill acne-causing bacteria, and reduce acne-related inflammation.
3. CREATES A CALMING SKINCARE EXPERIENCE
Skincare is more than just rubbing oils and lotions on your face. It’s a full-body experience. When diffused or smelled, Blue Tansy has calming properties that regulate hormones and calm anxiety. (When you smell it, you’ll understand what we mean.)
