Lemon Splash Essence with Collagen



The recipe for this natural Lemon Splash essence was created on a November day at my friends’ home near Lagos, Portugal. They have beautiful lemon trees in their garden whose scent and lovely fruits inspired me to make two types of hydrosols: one from lemon peels and one from lemon tree leaves. In the end, I used the hydrosol made from the peels due to their properties, but also because of their beautiful scent. Lemon peel is rich in flavonoids (rutin, hesperidin), fruit acids (AHA): citric and malic acid, vitamin C, and minerals such as calcium, potassium, and magnesium. The hydrosol was just the first step. I wondered what to do next. I wanted to create a product that would be perfect for sensitive skin, something that would be gentle but at the same time would brighten up the skin! I added a new form of vitamin C (of course), yeast extract, hyaluronic acid, bamboo ferment, and plant-derived collagen to the essence. And so Lemon Splash was born. Since I obtain the hydrosol myself, the essence is limited to the time of year when I have access to organic lemons.

This natural lemon essence based on hydrosol from lemons with bamboo extract, yeast extract, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin C is a cosmetic product that effectively nourishes and revitalizes the skin. Thanks to its natural ingredients, this essence provides deep hydration to the skin, improves its elasticity and firmness, and contributes to the reduction of discoloration and skin brightening.

Lemon hydrosol is a gentle water-based extract that is obtained by distilling lemon peels. It contains many valuable ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Lemon hydrosol soothes the skin, accelerates healing and regeneration, and helps reduce discoloration.

Yeast extract is a powerful nutrient that contains many important vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B, vitamin E, and selenium. It helps in skin regeneration and stimulates collagen production, which contributes to improving skin elasticity and firmness.

Hyaluronic acid is a natural ingredient that occurs in the skin, but its level decreases with age. Hyaluronic acid attracts and retains moisture in the skin, providing deep hydration and smoothing lines and wrinkles.

Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that helps fight free radicals, reduces discoloration, and brightens the skin. It also stimulates collagen production, contributing to improving skin elasticity and preventing premature skin aging.

Bamboo is an ingredient that is rich in natural antioxidants and nutrients such as silicon and flavonoids. It helps in skin regeneration, accelerates healing, and soothes irritation.

How to use the essence: it is ideal for use under cream, SPF, or foundation. It works well with other cosmetics. In summer, it can be used alone to refresh the skin during the day.
