Precious Ingredients: IMMORTELLE

Precious Ingredients: IMMORTELLE

Once I discovered the magic of Immortelle flower, I wanted to share it with the world.  Being one of the most precious, expensive oils, the everlasting flower remains a staple in Gressa formulations.  Its organic essential oil has very unique anti-aging properties that have been clinically proven to have incredibly high concentration of actives.

This pretty yellow flower possesses a special relationship with time; it is called “the immortal” because it never fades, even after being picked. This plant, with its golden buds that flower in June, was very popular at the beginning of the 19th century in Provence, particularly in the floral arts. But a Greek myth told in Homer’s Odyssey dates her existence even before the 8th Century BC.

The Immortelle flower was the beauty secret of the princess Nausicaa, daughter of the King of the Phoenicians and bienfaitrice to Ulysses, who discovered upon meeting her, the stimulating properties of the flower. Intimately tied to the notion of beauty, the essential oil of immortelle is today the raw material for anti-aging treatments which we use in our unique formulations.

The luxurious, yet miraculously lightweight nourishing Purifying Oil combines the unique anti-aging properties of everlasting immortelle flowers with the boosted effectiveness of 8 plant-derived active ingredients to give skin the youthful, radiant glow you’ve always wanted.

Immortelle flower’s powerful regenerative properties must be a staple in every woman’s beauty cabinet. I believe it is the most effective and gentle way of preventing and embracing the natural aging process.
