It has been introduced to North America and is widely naturalised there. It is a herbaceous perennial with hairy green stems 10 to 50 cm long that cover the ground in mats and send up short vertical shoots which bear soft violet flowers.

It contains high amount of Vitamin E, Vitamin K and Vitamin C and is commonly used for its skin-conditioning and extraordinary healing properties. It can inhibits skin cells from producing excess melanin pigments by inhibiting the tyrosinase activity, which in turn, reduces melanin biosynthesis. This promotes skin lightening activity, reduces age spots colour intensity and even up the skin tone.
