Bellis perennis, or the daisy flower, is a flowering plant that is small in stature, reaching between 2 – 10cm in height. In the fourteenth-century, daisy flower extract was a popular way to treat wounds. Ancient herbalists included it in love potions. Some ancient writers believed the name to be derived from “bellus” which is Latin for “pretty or charming”.
Bellis perennis has shown to inhibit melanogenesis by inhibiting tyrosinase activity, which results in strong skin lightening properties as both a corrective and preventative measure.
