Dill extract, scientifically known as Anethum graveolens, can be derived from either the seeds or leaves of the dill plant. The main constituents of dill weed oil are limonene, carvone, and phellandrene. 1 Studies have shown that topical application of formulas with dill essential oil may help to reinforce skin elasticity and firmness, thus improving the overall appearance of skin. As a result, the benefits of dill extract are often infused in anti-aging skincare formulas. 2 Furthermore, dill extract is often used as a fragrance component in cosmetic and personal care products such as lotions and creams. 3
