Medicinal Herbs

Organically grown in the midnight sun and colder climate; filled with energy and high concentration of nutrition, antioxidants, vitamins and skin healing compounds.

The TARAMAR products are based on several medicinal herbs that are organically grown or handpicked from Iceland’s pure and wild nature. Included are the traditionally healing herbs Calendula, Yarrow, Heartsease, Meadowsweet and Eye Bright as well as carrots and radishes that belong to vegetables.

Our research using novel techniques to evaluate bioactivity and establish the effects of our extracted compounds at intra cellular levels, indicate that the Icelandic herbs contain unusually effective compounds that support, nourish and heal the skin in many ways. Properties include: Smooth and calm the skin, protect cells against oxidation, promote healthy skin growth (heal wounds), lower inflammation, hinder viral and microbe growth, scavenge free radicals and stimulation cells to fight aging.

The growth season at northern latitudes is very different from the more southern ones. In Iceland the medicinal herbs are grown at 6 -15° C. On land the growth season is short, only 3 months, during which the sun is above the horizon most of the time. It is of special interest to understand how this condition affects the accumulation and strength of the bioactive compounds. For this purpose, collection of data and comparison to other sources is ongoing and is a prime part of TARAMAR’s research efforts.
