PEPTIDE⁴: THE STORY OF NIGHT SCENTED STOCK 01 Mar 2018In the heart of the English countryside, Night Scented Stock is being grown commercially for the first time ever, exclusively for ELEMIS.
Night Scented Stock produces delicate, little mauve flowers which go on to form pods. Within these pods are the precious seeds that we expertly harvest so as not to waste a single one. Once the seeds dry out, we carefully extract the wonderful oil which goes into the Peptide⁴ Night Recovery Cream-Oil.
Abundant with amazing omegas and a concentration of Vitamin E up to ten times higher than many other known natural oils used in skincare, this super-botanical is lovingly cultivated in small batches to preserve its integrity.
Night Scented Stock only flowers in June and July attracting honey bees and butterflies to the farm with its beautiful blooms which open at dusk filling the air with their sweet scent. It is also - unusually - sown in spring and harvested in autumn providing a natural habitat and supporting the ecosystem at times of the year when it would ordinarily struggle, adding environmental benefits to its long list of desirable properties.
Three generations of the same family have managed the farm that is home to ELEMIS’ Night Scented Stock for over 50 years. They’ve shared their knowledge, craftsmanship, and experience with ELEMIS allowing us to bring the innovative Peptide⁴ Night Recovery Cream-Oil, and its plentiful skincare benefits, directly to you.
