Pistacia Lentiscus l. oil

Ancient beauty secret

Ancient civilizations such as the Egyptians, the Greeks or the Romans knew very well the properties of plants. One of the most popular was the lentisk. The oil extracted from the berries was precious in daily life as a natural preservative or healing ointment. Applied on the skin one can sense a unique feeling of softness that remains surprisingly dry. It is ideal for the face. Its perfume intially begins with a powerful scent of mediterranean macchia. After a few minutes, it converts to a delicate fragrance and you can almost smell the seaside, where it was born.

Harvesting rules

We always choose our raw material with a deep consideration about sustainability and preservation. As an example, Pistacia Lentiscus grows spontaneous and happy in Sardinia! Therefore we do not need to use irrigation, nor fertilizers. The objective is to spare water and not to alter anything in the wildlife.

The harvest locations are preserved areas often used as pastures. We chose the females plants that are distant to residential areas or to intensive cultures. We collect and clean all the berries by hand without cutting the plants.
