Also known as Helichrysum, this “everlasting” flower is a star ingredient in our Peony Rejuvenating Face Cream.
It earned its name due to its unique characteristic of never withering or fading, even after being picked. Immortelle contains a high concentration of compounds such as sesquiterpene hydrocarbons, ketones, and esters. These natural constituents possess exceptional antioxidant properties, which protect the flower from oxidative stress and damage. The antioxidants effectively neutralize free radicals, thus enabling the flowers to maintain their vibrant appearance and vitality.
Immortelle flowers possess a unique ability to regenerate and self-heal. They have the remarkable capacity to repair themselves and continue to bloom. This regenerative quality is attributed to the presence of specific plant compounds that stimulate cellular renewal and regeneration. As a result, Immortelle flowers can withstand external stressors, environmental challenges, and the natural aging process without losing their beauty and vitality. Science calls “natural retinol” in modern skincare ingredients. The aroma of Immortelle instills peace and tranquility while the nourishing properties work to reveal youthful radiance.
