Love Your Skincare: 45-Day Returns

    For the Love of Lemons

    For the Love of Lemons

    This time of year, as the long hot days march on, I often turn to melons and citrus for drinks, snacks and salads. Anything cooling and refreshing to quench my thirst and pull out the heat. Citrus has a way of naturally soothing our skin as well and I'm fascinated with how, like many of our plant allies, it grows when and where it's needed. In the hottest, driest places, groves of these sweet fruits abound. Ripening as the sun hits its zenith, these luscious fruits also lighten sun damaged skin. How cool is that?

    Formulating our Detox Lemon Drop collection has been a journey of love and obsession over the last two decades. I wanted to almost taste the aroma- the fresh, juicy tartness of lemons. 🍋

    Did you know there are many different kinds of lemon essential oil? I began my aromatic journey by sampling every lemon essential oil I could find and fell in love with an organic Italian lemon. Citrus essential oil is unique in that, instead of being steam distilled, it’s cold pressed from the fresh rinds. For some reason, the oil from an organic orchard in Italy smells the most luscious to my nose.

    Detox Lemon Drop Brightening Collection

    My love is in formulating something that gives us a wonderful aromatic experience while doing our skin some good. These oils are all know for their ability to instantly lift our mood. At the same time, they calm the skin. They’re also known to detoxify soft tissues, *hopefully reducing the appearance of cellulite. Citrus oils also brighten skin and encourage collagen synthesis.

    LEMON PEEL BIOFERMENT is another lemon-based ingredient that we love to use. It's a prebiotic, supporting healthy skin, brightening darker spots and patches and helping improve the appearance of dull, lack skin. Whole lemon fruits are macerated and incubated with Lactobacillus lacti (the same bacteria used to produce many fermented food products like cheese and sour cream). This ferment is then further processed to remove the potential allergens, citral and geraniol. The resulting ferment is said to have high antioxidant activity. We harness it’s power in the Cucumber Face Polish, Detox Lemon Drop Brightening Hand & Body Lotion and Ultra-C Serum.
