Water lily is an aquatic plant originated from Europe. Nymphaea alba was used in traditional phytotherapy to treat inflamed skin, wounds and light burns thanks to its soothing and refreshing effects. Indeed, leaves and roots were applied as a mash poultice on skin. The plant is considered as an important drug in homeopathic medicine. According to the 17th century herbalist Nicholas Culpeper, the leaves do cool all inflammations. Cosmetically, water lily extracts are used to support a mild calming and cooling effect of stressed, reddened and slightly irritated skin. Moreover, water Lily can be used as astringent and antiseptic thanks to its high content in tannins.
