Meet Marshmallow Extract: The Miracle Skin Care Herb

If you’re in search of that miracle ingredient that will leave your skin looking youthful and radiant, meet our signature herb: marshmallow root extract. For use on skin, this little known herb comes packed full of nutrients and vitamins - and today, we’re looking at exactly how marshmallow root benefits your skin, as well as some of our most popular and powerful skin care products.

What is marshmallow root?

Harvested from the marshmallow plant, this miracle herb is known for its healing properties and has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries. Packed with vitamins, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, it’s often used as a natural remedy for treating respiratory and digestive problems - but it can also be used to treat the skin.

Containing mucilage, the root extract appears as a gel-like substance that forms a protective layer to soothe inflammation and seal in moisture - making it a popular choice for wounds and insect bites. However, it also contains other properties that can boost skin health, such as polysaccharides and flavonoids that are associated with tissue repair - making it a winning formula for natural skin care products.

The ultimate moisturiser

If you suffer with extremely dry or sensitive skin, the temptation to over-moisturise with heavy skin care products can be strong, but this is often counterproductive - leading to oily skin and breakouts. However, opting for an organic moisturising product like our Rose & Mallow Facial Oil - packed full of nutrients and nourishment - will help you to moisturise your skin more effectively.

Made from organic ingredients, this 97% organic face oil is gently absorbed into the skin, naturally hydrating and repairing the skin without leaving it feeling greasy. With the addition of our miracle ingredient, mallow extract, your skin benefits from its plumping properties and its ability to moisturise deep below the surface - leaving you with soft, glowing skin.

A powerful anti-aging ingredient

Whether you’re looking to preserve your skin from an early age or regain a more youthful complexion, by using marshmallow extract for your skin, you can help to fight visible signs of aging. With our award-winning Mallow Beauty Balm, you can stop time with a rich, moisturising product that rehydrates and repairs the skin from deep within - while also providing a much-needed protective layer to slow the aging process.

Marshmallow extract also works miracles in reducing the appearance of fine lines in areas with delicate skin that are prone to drying out. With the help of marshmallow extract and mullein, even thin skin around the eyes will be reinvigorated and hydrated - making the fine lines less visible and leaving you looking younger.


Brimming with vitamins and nutrients, marshmallow extract works to rejuvenate your skin naturally. Why not refresh your daily skincare regime by introducing a touch of mallow extract, so your skin benefits from a healthier, younger and more radiant complexion? Whether that’s with facial oil or a marshmallow moisture balm, the results will be sure to make a lasting impression.
