Tales from nature
Lemon is a small tree originally from China and India today widely spread throughout the Mediterranean and has very fragrant small white flowers. The lemon extract is used a lot in cosmetics thanks to its multiple benefits on skin and hair: it is astringent, antibacterial, whitening and antioxidant. It is extracted from the lemon peel, that is, the shell crust that is worked through a cold pressing process.
The glycolic extract of lemon favors the exfoliation of the skin, especially the oily and impure one. It reduces the desquamation of the dry or damaged one, improving its elasticity. It promotes the birth of a new and fresh skin, attenuating lines and wrinkles.
On the scalp helps to eliminate excess fat and prevents hair loss by stimulating growth, opening the pores and promoting the oxygenation of the skin.
