Amazonian Lily flower offers powerful botanical benefits to skin and hair.
Its extract is issued from an Amazonian aquatic plant, which blooms all year long. Its original name was Royal Lily in honor of the Queen Victoria.
When used in hair care, Lily extract has the ability to calm and nourish hair making it luxurious, manageable and shiny. This is due to the compounds found in the flower: rich in starch, glucose, oils and tannins, which provide anti-inflammatory benefits that aid in soothing the scalp while deeply conditioning the hair. Its tannin content also makes it useful as an astringent (therefore helping to narrow the pores and tonifying the skin, but can also greatly help the scalp). When used in skin care this extract can be very nourishing, giving the skin a smooth and supple appearance: in other words, this is a super powerful ingredients for your skin to glow. Its rich composition provides deep conditioning and moisturizing while also having a detoxifying effect on the skin.
As its name claims, this flower grows easily in the amazonian region. However we (the Spoiled Bee Team) discovered the flower in South Pacific. This flower has been used for ages as an Ayurvedic remedy.
In some retired Island such as Vanuatu Island where we spent time, we discovered this beautiful flower.
We are so excited to be able to use it in our skincare. And we found it so useful that we sell it as a DIY ingredients too.
Add 5 to 10 % of our amazonian Lily oil extract in your hair mask or in your facial skincare.
