Many of the base elements used in our IMMORTELLE line are harvested from soils along the coastal areas of the world, including the Corsica region of France, where we import the precious oil of IMMORTELLE (Helichrysum italicum). There are over 500 varieties of Helichrysum, but the most rare and unique is Helichrysum italicum from France. This coveted oil is extracted from a daisy-like, everlasting flower, that is golden in color. It is known for its aromatherapeutic and healing properties, which aids in the protection and repair of skin from the onslaught of everyday living: weather, pollution, stress, and aging.
Over the years, numerous scientific experiments have been conducted in Europe with the oil of Helichrysum italicum. Results suggest that its composition contains a high level of di-ketones, having a regenerative effect. It not only acts as a powerful anti-oxidant, but multiplies collagen production six-fold, keeping skin hydrated and fresh. This in turn guarantees a diminished appearance of fine line wrinkles, and if used routinely, cultivates a positive anti-aging skin care treatment.
A full spectrum oil of exceptional value.
"Aromatically, IMMORTELLE is thought to open the heart and clear old emotional wounds."
The common name IMMORTELLE, roughly translates as "always there for you" or "everlasting", and its botanical name, Helichrysum italicum, is the equally poetic "golden sun".
