What is it?
Anthemis Nobilis Extract is a yellow dye that is extracted from the dried flowers of the Chamomilla Romana (Chamaemelum nobile) plant. Another type of Chamomile called Matricaria recutita (German Chamomile) is believed to be less allergenic than the Roman Chamomile. Both are within the same family.

Chamomilla Romana is a plant from the Compositae family which grows in most of Europe, North Africa, South America, Australia, and New Zealand. You should avoid contact with this plant and with products containing this substance. Avoidance requires reading labels, package inserts, and on occasion communication with the manufacturer.
