Meadowfoam, or limnanthes alba, received its delicately beautiful name because while in bloom, fields of these little white flowers resemble white foam gently drifting on the ocean.  It’s very emollient due to its high composition of long chain fatty acids and vitamin E, which not only deeply moisturize but also serve as a powerful antioxidant gobbling up free radicals and keeping them from harming your skin.  Because of these properties, it has amazing hydrating and rejuvenating benefits.

I’ve heard this can be used some skin conditions, such as rosacea. It has plenty of benefits for this skin but only to treat the symptoms and not actually provide a cure.

One of my friends grinds the flowers and then puts the whole thing on her skin. She says it works like a charm.
