The kynorodo or else fruit wild rose ( Rosa Canina fruit) is known from tradition for its beneficial properties on skin care and more.
Wild Rose is a plant that we often encounter during our nature excursions. But we rarely pay attention to it, maybe only in winter, when its red fruits ripen. It is a real natural treasure of the Greek flora, with wonderful properties that offer a holistic treatment of our skin, thanks to the abundance of its beneficial ingredients.
Vitamin C cyanide oil and fatty acids
Flaxseed oil is the best natural source of vitamin C , as it contains 50% more vitamin C than orange! Furthermore, it contains a rich combination of vitamins A, D and E . So it is rightly considered an excellent ingredient for the care of mature skin. It contributes significantly to the smoothing of fine lines , as well as to the treatment of skin discolorations .
But nature gave generously to canine and other beneficial ingredients. The precious rose oil contains high concentrations of flavonoids, antioxidants and trace elements. It is also rich in essential fatty and omega-3 fatty acids , such as linoleic and linolenic acid , known for their anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-allergic properties.
All of the above active ingredients contained in pine oil, stimulate skin fibroblasts by activating collagen production . In other words, they force the skin to be activated, proving that it is a natural ingredient with excellent emollient, moisturizing, healing and anti-aging properties. In fact, it has been described from time to time as a natural substitute for retinol.
The benefits of pineapple do not stop here, as it creates a protective mantle on the skin. This helps regenerate cells and improves skin texture.
It is also worth noting that cumin oil is an excellent antioxidant, as it plays a very important role in preventing cellular oxidation caused by environmental stress and overexposure to the sun! It helps reduce the free radicals that cause skin proteins to break down, such as collagen and elastin. This is another very important effect of canine, as the loss of these proteins is due to the formation of wrinkles and the loss of skin elasticity.
Without a doubt, it can be described as a natural treasure for our daily care, as it eliminates imperfections and irritations, moisturizes and reduces the appearance of scars and wrinkles!
It nourishes and moisturizes the skin starting from the deepest layers and thus is considered a unique nourishing oil for dry skin.
But imagine, it is also one of the few oils that the oily skin loves! It is extremely absorbed, without leaving annoying greasy residues, while reducing enlarged pores, giving a unique glow and vitality to the face!
We at ZELIA are convinced of the effectiveness of this unique natural and Greek organic ingredient. The reason we love it so much, is because it is ideal for all skin types!
So you can find it in the unique compositions of the APHRODITE face care line, the Anti- Wrinkle Day Cream and the Eye Cream , the Night Cream , the ELADION Facial Repair Oil , as well as the CHARIS Body Scrubbing Cream !
