The Love Co - Vanilla

Vanilla is the unmistakable, uplifting and sweet scent we all know and love.

What is vanilla?

The heart of a sun-kissed tropical paradise, the exotic Vanilla planifolia orchid blooms with grace. This isn't just any plant; it's the source of one of nature's most enchanting gifts – the vanilla bean. Picture it: these pods are not simply pods, they are the dried, unripe fruits of this magnificent orchid, treasured across the globe not just for their flavour but for their soothing, luxurious essence.

What are the benefits of vanilla?

  • It is soothing, brightening, softening and antibacterial for the skin.
  • It has a sweet fragrance with uplifting, de-stressing and aphrodisiac qualities.
  • The sugars in vanilla act as a humectant, which forms a barrier on the skin and prevents moisture loss. 

Did you know?

Vanillin, the main aromatic compound within vanilla, is an antioxidant and contributes to restoring the skin's brightness and softness.
