Brightening and shine
Mandarin oil refreshes the body with an uplifting fragrance that clears the mind and gives a sense of wellbeing. It has a brightening effect on the skin and adds shine to the hair, by encouraging the cuticle to lie flat and reflect more light.
Mandarin oil is extracted from the ripe fruits of the Citrus nobilis tree. It helps to rejuvenate the skin as it is thought to improve the circulation of blood and lymph, particularly below the skin. The oil is also said to promote the growth of new cells and tissues, reviving the skin.
The bergamot, lemon and mandarin essential oils found in Lush products are sourced from Reggio di Calabria in southern Italy and we have been buying directly from the producer since 2005. The suppliers are a family business, producing citrus oils for three generations. The fruit are hand picked during winter and are grown without pesticides.
