within the Amazon, lies a unique, eye catching flower that is known for its

application areas where high maintenance isn’t viewed as a bad thing. FSS Amazonian
Lily Extract OS can be added to formulations to smooth and nourish the skin

the shallow waters of the Amazon River basin and is known for its exceptionally
large, beautiful petals and leaves. It is often called royal water lily and its
genus name, Victoria, is in honor of Queen Victoria. This plant is
unique in the sense that it is immune to insects and disease and lives in a
highly specialized habitat. This plant earns its high maintenance reputation as
it needs warm waters, good water quality and flow to thrive. In addition, it
grows year round in its native areas but in other places it will only grow
during the summer.
the petals help give this flower its beautiful appearance, the large circular
leaves are really the most interesting thing about this lily. The leaves of the
flower are delicate but actually quite strong, being able to support a large
amount of weight due to its unique structure. The leaves also have protective
mechanisms, such as thorns and a striking rimmed edge to protect the plant from
insects and fish; however they also serve as an advantage to them. The leaves
lie flat on the water’s surface providing fish and other invertebrates with
shade, shelter, and comfort. This also creates a most pleasant appearance
making this type of water lily popular at most botanical gardens.
lilies are regarded as a symbol of freshness, purity and tranquility while
having calming effects, thus being one of the most intriguing and unique
flowers. These flowers can detoxify and nourish the body of water which they
reside in. These waters usually have a high concentration of heavy metals,
which this plant absorbs. These therapeutic attributes can be conveyed in skin
care products for a more balanced and refreshed feel, which is perfect for
consumers whom are searching for more natural and soothing lifestyles.
