With today’s technology, we are able to refine the purity of the extract, making it even more effective in skin care. The flower yields an incredibly precious oil brimming with nutrients that help to hydrate, soothe, tone, and restore the skin, and the scent adds a unique mood-enhancing quality to the experience of using it."—Lev Glazman, Fresh Co-Founder
