Neroli in skin care: Do you know these 5 benefits of neroli oil?
The oil from the aromatic blossoms of the bitter orange tree is particularly popular in aromatherapy. In our skin care, we kill two birds with one stone, so to speak: The great scent of neroli has a mood-lifting effect, reduces stress1 and can even relieve pain2. At the same time we use the care effect of the valuable oil for skin health.
1. Neroli is antimicrobial and antibacterial
Studies have shown that neroli is particularly effective against pathogenic germs such as Staphylococcus aureus3. These pathogens are responsible for skin infections, for example.
2. Neroli has antioxidant properties
Neroli essential oil has been shown in studies to be a powerful antioxidant4. Because of their cell-protecting effect, antioxidants are among the most popular beauty weapons against premature skin aging. Antioxidants protect cells from oxidative stress and the harmful effects of free radicals.
3. Neroli is recommended to treat acne
Due to its antibacterial properties, neroli is used in aromatherapy as a natural remedy for acne5. Bacteria such as the so-called Propionibacterium acnes are a major factor in the development of acne. Because these are becoming increasingly resistant to traditional treatment methods, essential oils such as neroli oil are considered a promising alternative.
4. Neroli has an anti-inflammatory effect
Neroli oil not only has an antibacterial and antimicrobial effect, but is also used against fungal infections on the skin4 and has been shown to be anti-inflammatory 6.
5. Fragrant neroli oil is our secret ingredient for feel-good skincare
The wonderful scent of neroli essential oil is my favorite item on this list. For me, the subtle, soothing neroli aroma is a real soul caresser, which makes applying cream and make-up remover oil a soothing experience for all the senses. I'll tell you what the FIVE customers have to say about it in a moment!
Precious neroli in the FIVE products - that's how the precious oil smells!
When I had the idea for FIVE in 2015, I made a conscious decision to make skin care products with 5 ingredients. The only question was: with or without fragrance?
To find out, I formulated the first products with and without fragrance. My test persons agreed - the fragrance makes skin care a pleasurable feel good moment. It's simply good to treat yourself to conscious self-care during your daily care.
And that's how I came to Neroli: For a long time I was looking for a natural essential oil that offers a multi-faceted fragrance experience. Fragrances are divided into three classes: top, middle and foot notes.Most essential oils only cover one of them - only in combination with other fragrances does a full fragrance experience arise
Neroli is different. It smells fresh-delicate-sweet-tart, even though it actually only covers the heart note. For me an absolutely perfect fragrance - exactly what I was looking for!
That's what FIVE customers say about the scent of neroli oil
Neroli is contained in our nourishing Shea Cream and the mild make-up remover oil. Both products contain the same amount of subtly scented neroli. In the make-up remover, we provide neroli oil with a perfect companion: cold-pressed apricot oil that smells delicately of marzipan and combines with neroli to form an unbeatable duo for pampering skin care.
