Due to its vibrant colour, red flowers are easily targeted by bugs. To protect themselves from attacks and also to begin healing its wounds, the red flowers possess a stronger antioxidant capacity compared to other flowers. Among all of the red flowers, Mamonde, the flower expert has carefully chosen 5 red flowers with powerful antioxidant capacity to formulate its Age Control Line. They are Camellia, Artichoke, Pansy, Daisy and Geranium. The main flower of the Age Control Line is the Camiellia flower. Also called the Winter Thuja, the Camellia is a persistent flower. It blooms in the winter and its leaves do not wilt even in the chilly weather. Furthermore, the tough, durable flower is able to remain fresh for a week from the time it falls off of its branch.
The Camellia flower has been prized for centuries as an emblem of elegance and nobility. It originates from Asia, primarily from Korea, Japan, and China. The Camellia flower has especially been part of Japan and Korea’s cultures for thousands of years. These flowers did not reach Europe until the mid-1700s, and made their way to North America shortly after. The Camellia’s produce an abundance of showy flowers measuring up to 5 to 6 inches in diameter in late winter or early spring. The colours range from white, yellow and pink to reds and purples with plenty of variations in between. In Korea, the Camellias flower is a symbol of faithfulness and longevity. They have been part of traditional Korean wedding ceremonies since 1200 B.C. The Camellia flower is highly regarded in China and is even considered the national flower of southern China. In Japan, the Camellia flower is called “Tsubaki” and symbolizes the divine. It is often used in religious and sacred ceremonies.
After many years of research on Camellias, Mamonde discovered that Camellia’s powerful life force comes from the Catechin contained in the Camellia. Mamonde has also succeeded in extracting from Camellia EGCG using the 16-year accumulated technology of AmorePacific, which is 100 times more effective than Vitamin C in blocking harmful oxygen and 25 times stronger than Vitamin E.
