Some interesting facts:

When trying to figure out which cream or lotion will give you the most bang for your buck you can’t directly compare weight (in grams) with volume (in milliliters).

This can be easily illustrated with water and oil:
Did you know that 100 ml of water weigh100 g? Of course you did.
But did you also know that 100 ml of oil weigh just 92 g? You probably didn’t know the exact number, but it definitely makes sense since oil floats on water due to its lighter weight. 🙂
It’s also interesting how certain “almost identical” ingredients differ greatly in the effect they have on the skin, which is also reflected in their prices.

True lavender – LAVANDULA ANGUSTIFOLIA or Lavandin?

The situation is similar when it comes to lavender essential oil – LAVANDULA ANGUSTIFOLIA FLOWER OIL, which greatly encourages healing and regeneration of skin cells. It has anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and analgesic properties, plus it smells really nice. Flowers hold the highest concentration of essential oil, from 1 % to 3 %, and it’s is usually produced using steam distillation. Lavender essential oil has been used as far back as the ancient Egyptians, who utilized it in embalming processes.

True lavender is Lavandula Angustifolia, while a hybrid species called LAVANDIN, a nice, fragrant plant but with limited healing properties, is usually used in commercial applications. To put things into perspective: it takes thirty to forty kilos of Provence LAVANDIN to produce a liter of essential oil, but it takes as much as 150 to 170 kilos of LAVANDULA ANGUSTIFOLIA to make a liter of true lavender essential oil.

But don’t worry. We guarantee that our ONE F4R ALL lotion contains only natural vitamin E (INCI: TOCOPHEROL) and BIO true lavender essential oil produced strictly from the flowers of LAVANDULA ANGUSTIFOLIA.
