The whimsical experience of picking a Dandelion, closing your eyes, making a wish, and blowing those white, fluffy, fairy-like seeds into the wind is a favored childhood memory, but did you know about the skin-healing magic you were holding in your hands? Relying on the latest medical research, Dr. Schaffer discovered the incredible beauty benefits of this mighty flower and crowned it Schique’s key ingredient.
Both powerfully potent and femininely floral, we’ve imbued Dandelion extract into all of our products for its exceptionally therapeutic properties. Native to North America and Eurasia, this member of the darling daisy family is rich in Iron, Potassium, Zinc, Folic Acid, Niacin, Riboflavin, Pyridoxine, and Vitamins A, C and E. These minerals and antioxidants are not only a nutritional part of your diet, and yes Dandelions are edible in their entirety, but they play an important role in the health of your skin when applied topically.
Infused into each seamlessly blended formula, Dandelion extract detoxifies, hydrates, clears pores, fights free radicals, supports tissue function, and nourishes the deepest layers of your epidermis. Due to its high alkalinity, this intelligent ingredient reduces inflammation and fights off infection for clear, luminous skin.
Dandelion originates from the French word dent de lion, meaning lion’s tooth. Its small yellow petals cluster together to form a romantic rosette. But unlike a rose, Dandelions have no thorns, so we like to call this our friendly flower. And interestingly enough, their fanciful seeds are produced without pollination, creating offspring with identical genetics. In layman’s terms, she’s an independent woman! That’s why this glorious ingredient deserves the name The Dandy Lioness, giving radiant results for women who aren’t afraid to roar.
