Clementine Oil

Citrus Clementina - The Essence of Radiance

Clementine Oil is derived from the peel of the clementine fruit, scientifically known as Citrus Clementina. The name "Citrus" comes from the Latin word "citrus," meaning lemon tree, and "Clementina" is derived from the French missionary Clement Rodier, who is credited with discovering the clementine fruit in Algeria in the early 20th century.
