The shape of this fruit is as mysterious as its origin. It grows on a fragrant shrub with hardy foliage, that would come from South East Asia – It is actually well cultivated in China and in Japan for its abundant flowering and fructification. Although it contains very few pulp, that citron is used to cook, most of all as a crystallised fruit. The essential oil is used a lot in the perfume industry when it is thought to have digestive and cough properties in the traditional medecine. In Asia, it is used to perfume closets and as an offering in budhist temples as well.
Because skin is tired sometimes, it is necessary to help it to get back its energy and vitality by strenghtening its elementary functions. To get a skin more radiant, more beautiful, more resistant.
Improves skin metabolism. Helps to stimulate all cell functions in the epidermis.
Increases epidermis cell regeneration and reinforces the protective skin barrier.
Limits the creation of free radicals due to the physiological processes and free radicals induced by UVB.

Full Energy Budha’s hand citron relaunches cell energy in epidermis by increasing cell energetic production, that is creating through respiration in cell mitochondriae. It contributes to boost chemical reactions (oxidations), that supply ATP, the source of elemental energy for cells, by maintaining the global energetic balance respect (energetical homeostasia), meaning that it keeps a balance between degradation processes (catabolism) and synthesis processes (anabolism). Those processes are inclined to unbalance with ageing. Besides, it minimizes the production of free radicals, that lead many cell desorders in short and long term. Indeed they can limit the cellular activity at the level of the mitochondrial respiration. In the same time, it helps to balance the regeneration of epidermis in terms of production of keratinocytes, a process that decreases with ageing.
Thanks to those actions, skin cells can get back a level of activity to fill their functions, including those limited by ageing.
