Lavender is Toxic to Skin Cells

Further proof that dogmatic adherence to untested and theoretically unsound natural skin care practices is deleterious, lavender has emerged as cytotoxic for skin.

Dermaxine (bio-cellular skin care products) claim erroneously that lavender has "cytophylactic properties (encouraging the growth of new skin cells) [and] stimulates the growth of new skin cells, which is a boon for any anti-aging skin care product."

While its fragrance may be pleasant and therapeutic (lavender is proven to slow brain waves), lavender does not produce net gain for skin.

For further information, see Cytotoxicity of Lavender Oil and its Major Components to Human Skin Cells.

Lavender is a major component of natural, aromatherapy and organic skin care brands such as Decleor, Dr. Hauschka, Yonka, Jurlique, Avalon Organics and Darphin.
