Organic water mint - minty-fresh coolness
This ancient medicinal plant was popular with the Celts and Druids: it was one of the "three sacred herbs" and a true ritual plant. Water mint is known as peppermint's "mild sister" as it contains a lower amount of menthol. At lavera Naturkosmetik, refreshing water mint extract is used in natural body cleansing products. Minty-fresh and pleasantly cooling - that's why we love water mint!
The "mild sister" of mint
Water mint belongs to the labiate family and can grow up to 80 cm tall. Water mint grows best in damp ditches and marshland but can also be found fully submerged in lakes. It has small white to light-purple flowers. Water mint contains essential oils, tannins and menthol, among other things.
Organic water mint extract tones your skin. The essential oils have an antiseptic and cooling effect on the skin.
The plant extract invigorates the skin and senses, making it the perfect valuable plant ingredient in lavera body cleansing products.
In the lavera body cleansing range, organic water mint extract provides a pleasant, moisturising skin sensation.
