An emollient and soothing flower
A Force of Nature
Mallow (Malva sylvestris) has been known ever since antiquity. It is part of the Malvaceae family, and grows as a biennial plant commonly found in the wild. This plant is originally from Europe, and is also referred to as common, high or tall mallow. It is easily recognizable thanks to its large violet-colored flowers.
A Plant with Multiple Virtues
Nowadays, mallow is still used for its medicinal virtues. It may be consumed as food, either cooked or raw. It is used in cosmetics for the properties of its active ingredients, which make it emollient, soothing, effective as an antioxidant, hydrating* and refreshing.
Mallow water is obtained through steam distillation of malva sylvestris flowers. The name “malva” comes from the Greek term “malakein” which means “soften” pointing to the plant’s emollient properties.
