Butterfly Pea Powder

Butterfly Pea Powder

Butterfly pea powder is the dried and ground flowers of the Butterfly Pea plant (also known as Asian pigeonwings). The plant is native to South East Asia where it has traditionally been used in folk medicine and in skin and haircare. It is fast becoming used as a colourant in organic skincare, thanks to its beautiful blue colour, but it’s not “just” a lovely colour; the flowers contain powerful antioxidants (known as anthocyanins) which may help in maintaining a healthy scalp and strengthening hair follicles.

There is also some evidence that Butterfly pea powder is anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial. It is for this reason that we tried it out as an ingredient to soothe an itchy scalp. And for us – it works!
