lowers have also always been one of the key inspirations and main source of ingredients in the world of beauty. Mamonde is one perfect example of a brand that fully utilises the beauty of flowers within its formulations. According to Mamonde senior researcher, Shin Bo Hyun, vital energy produced by flowers when they bloom can be transferred to our skin where its healing properties can take effect. With this knowledge in mind, Mamonde created their own garden where researchers cultivate and study the different blooms that can provide beauty benefits. Currently, Mamonde Garden is home to about 1,000 varieties of flowers, and we’re amazed at their potential. Their honeysuckle has highly vitalising powers, as it has the ability to deliver nutrients to help firm up skin. The ceramide and hydrators found in hibiscus work well at hydrating parched skin, while narcissus bulbs have the ability to provide 24-hour long moisturisation. On top of being an antioxidant, Lotus also contains natural alpha-hydroxy acids (it helps skin rejuvenation). Camellia, on the other hand, is a resilient plant that can bust ageing in its tracks.
