Hazelnut Oil and Everlasting infused Olive Oil
Helichrysum Italicum SSP Italicum
Everlasting is a rare flowering shrub endemic to the Mediterranean Basin, with clusters of golden yellow flowers. The names “everlasting” (English) and “immortelle” (French) come from the reputation of the flowers for never fading even when dried. The leaves exhale an ambergris fragrance, similar to the curry scent.
Even if the use of everlasting in phytotherapy is quite recent, Greek mythology gives a few hints about its regenerating powers. Apollo was a young god famous for its beauty, and used to wear a crown made from everlasting flowers to symbolise its own immortality. Phaeacian princess Nausicaa helped Ulysses get his strength back by sharing with him her beauty secret: everlasting oil, which she used to slather her face and body.
On the Domaine we grow the Italian everlasting variety. Amongst the 500 helichrysum species, it is the most sought after in aromatherapy, but also by famous anti-ageing cosmetics brands.
Solar maceration and formulation
Everlasting flowers are handpicked in July, and then immersed in extra virgin organic olive oil for maceration. The oil is infused by the plant’s active principles, adding to omega-9 and antioxidants naturally brought by the olive, known to soften and protect the skin.
The resulting everlasting macerated oil is the basis for the YOUTH INFUSION. It is enriched with organic hazelnut oil, a dry oil very concentrated in vitamin A, E and omega-9 to protect and nourish the skin. Finally the formula is preserved with natural vitamin E, and fragranced with an essential oils composition (sweet orange, geranium, cedar) at a very low concentration. And that’s all!
