Dill, (peucedanum graveolens) contains a volatile component called carvone (believed to reduce flatulence) and limonene – a fragrant chemical that can cause skin irritation. Dill was rarely used in skin products until it recently began appearing in combination with blackberry extract. Although these products claim that dill triggers elastin production on ‘skin equivalents’, there is little to no evidence that dill has any benefit to real human skin.

In short, dill is only beginning to appear on the market, and its day in the spotlight is not assured.
