The main ingredient in this lavender nourishing cream is great for the skin. Lavender is a potent antibacterial and antifungal agent, which means that it can help clean the skin from harmful substances. “It contains powerful antioxidants that will prevent and counteract the irritating effects of pollutants on the skin,” explains Claude Saliou, Ph.D., director of research and development for Johnson & Johnson. “Plus, studies have shown that elevated stress results in rough skin, so lavender can improve skin by acting as a mentally calming agent.”
