Immortelle has been the most sought-after Mediterranean plant used in the cosmetics industry in recent years. It is also called a plant that never withers, even when harvested, and its beneficial effects on the skin have long been known. In our country, this resistant plant grows in Istria, Kvarner, Dalmatia and on the islands. It is an amazing fact that one liter of oil requires as much as a ton of fresh flowers, and an experienced picker can harvest 200 kilograms of immortelle a day.
The cosmetics industry is the largest user of the expensive immortelle oil, which is credited with almost magical properties that have a regenerating and healing effect on the skin.
Immortelle contains medicinal italodiones, regenerating non-terpene diketones, monoterpene alcohols, monoterpenes, esters, essential oils, bitter substances, bioflavonoids and arzanol. The compound arzanol is found only in immortelle and is unmatched in the plant world. From one kilogram of dried flowers, extraction yields 780 mg of arzanol, which has a proven anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effect.
Although immortelle is suitable for use in many diseases, it is most popular as a remedy against wrinkles, blemishes and other signs of skin aging.
I found information on the Internet that research has shown that immortelle reduces deep wrinkles by 19%, the total number of wrinkles by 14% and skin wrinkles by 38%. Special emphasis is placed on the radiance that immortelle brings to the skin.
Immortelle oil has a strong antioxidant effect, and other protective properties that are largely due to its ingredient neryl acetate.
Effect of immortelle on the skin:
acts strongly against free radicals
significantly affects collagen production
stimulates tissue changes
improves microcirculation and thus skin detoxification
it has an antiseptic and purifying effect.
Immortelle night cream from a Croatian manufacturer called Bellus femina is applied in the evening on cleansed skin of the face and neck. Since the cream has a thick texture (glycerin, beeswax, essential oils), it will be more suitable for normal and dry skin.
It will nourish the skin and give it elasticity and softness. It absorbs well and does not leave a greasy film. In the morning, your skin will be soft and nourished.
