The truth is my love for oranges started in my childhood. As a true Miami girl, born and raised, I can remember my very first visit to an orange grove farm.  Seeing the acres and acres of  big beautiful green trees with the golden oranges ripe for picking just makes me happy. It’s only fitting that I’d create a collection of skincare line that’s crafted with the refreshing vitamin rich sweet orange as an ingredient.

 

 3 Skincare Benefits of Sweet Orange Essential Oils

1. Promotes Collagen production: Scientific research shows that vitamin C found in orange essential oil increases blood flow to the skin and encourages collagen production and skin elasticity.

2. Anti-inflammatory: The sweet citrus-y scent is relaxing and has been used to treat anxiety.

3. Super Ingredient: D-limonene is a super-nutrient found in Orange Essential Oil. Studies have shown its ability to prevent cellular mutations and combat cancer tumor growth. Limonene actually gives the fruit its aroma.

 

The amazing power of vitamin C.  Vitamin C seems to be the popular kid on the block. And rightfully so, according to the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology  article, “Vitamin C, a water-soluble vitamin also known as ascorbic acid that is found in citrus fruits and dark green leafy vegetables, plays an essential role in the production of collagen and elastin. Because of its antioxidant properties, vitamin C may reverse the negative effects of UV radiation in the skin…”

Vitamin C is also found in lemon, papaya, strawberries, cantalopes and more. According to Dr. Oz, vitamin C helps to fight wrinkles, sagging and age spots. I can go on and on about the delicious skin loving reasons why sweet orange essential oil is a major ingredient in our Sweet Orange Skincare Collection. For the most effective anti-aging treatment we’ve combined vitamin C  and E. Both vitamins are antioxidants and protect against sun damage, improve skin texture and helps even skin tone. This power duo is nothing to mess with.

We couldn’t be more happy about hand-picking a powerful ingredient that’s naturally skin firming, anti-aging and detoxifying to create a luxurious skincare collection.
