What Is Neroli Oil And How Does It Benefit Your Skin?
Even when you fancy yourself smart about skin care, you may occasionally cross paths with a product ingredient you’ve never heard of and comes with a whiff of exoticism. Case in point - neroli oil. Eminence Organics uses this ingredient in our incredibly popular Neroli Age Corrective Eye Serum as well as Neroli Age Corrective Hydrating Mist. These products are award winners and perennial best sellers, yet what do we know about its key ingredient? Let’s take a closer look and find out exactly what is neroli oil, its surprising origins, and what are its benefits in organic skin care?
What is neroli oil?
Who would have thought that this glamorous and mysterious ingredient is actually derived from the humble orange (GQ)? Neroli is extracted from a close relative of the ordinary variety, called the bitter orange - or marmalade orange because it is also prized for making the jam-like spread. A precious oil, neroli is carefully steam-distilled from the blossoms of this unique orange. Crusaders first brought the brightly-colored fruit from Asia to Europe, and neroli was named after Anna Marie Orsini, the 17th century Princess of Nerola, Italy, who used it to scent her gloves.
What are the benefits of neroli?
Besides the aromatherapy benefits of its irresistible orange blossom scent, neroli can also be used to rub on stretch marks, age spots and scars. According to Patricia Davis, author of "Aromatherapy: An A-Z," neroli oil stimulates skin cells to regenerate, giving it anti-scarring properties (Livestrong). Along with its regenerative qualities, neroli oil is also antiseptic and antibacterial.
With this exquisite oil, Eminence Organic Skin Care formulated two of our most in-demand products: Neroli Age Corrective Eye Serum and Neroli Age Corrective Hydrating Mist.
Winner of Best Eye Serum in the Spa & Wellness MexiCaribe Awards 2017, Neroli Age Corrective Eye Serum hydrates the look of delicate skin around the eyes. Along with coconut water and Swiss Green Apple Stem Cell Technology, neroli oil fights the visible signs of aging around the eyes, including fine lines and crow’s feet.
