Vlierbessen (Sambucus nigra)
Elderberries are rich in vitamin c and naturally detoxifying. This makes them brilliant additions for cleansing all over and keeping skin radiant and clear. They also give a deep bluish-black colour to products and have traditionally been regarded for their properties as a natural dye.
The elderberry is a large bush of shrub native to Europe and often grown in the USA. Large clusters of small white or cream-coloured flowers bloom in late spring and are followed by the clusters of small dark berries used in our skincare.
