Okay, if you have been following us for a while now, we definitely highlight antioxidants for many reasons! Antioxidants are compounds that inhibit oxidation. Oxidation is a chemical reaction that can produce free radicals, thereby leading to chain reactions that may damage the cells of organisms. Antioxidants such as thiols or ascorbic acid (vitamin c) terminate these chain reactions.
Vitamin C is an Antioxidant! It protects the body’s cells from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals can cause changes in cells and DNA that can lead to illnesses, including cancer.
“Fresh from Florida”
Authentic Florida citrus oils are cultivated and distilled from local citrus groves and orchards by fruit pressing to extract the juice from the fruit, and the oil from the rind. This oil is called cold pressed orange oil. The cold pressed orange oil is vacuum distilled to recover folded oils and citrus fractions. The terpene stream generated from this process is food grade d-limonene. The collected peel undergoes a second pressing and steam distillation to recover more essential oil. Terra Dolce utilizes the freshest Florida citrus throughout its lines, specifically concentrated in the Floridian collection.
