The Acca Selloviana is an evergreen shrub of the Mirtaceae family known as Feijoa. The fruit, leaves and seeds have antibacterial and antiseptic properties, as well as antioxidant and anti-age properties. The Feijoa is a fruit with a very pleasant fragrance that includes and boasts many healthy and beneficial properties for the human body and for the dietary balance.
The Feijoa is cultivated in the Colombian Andean region between 1800 and 2700 meters of altitude in a subtropical climate where the temperature does not drop below 15 ° C all year, allowing the high intensity of sunlight during the growth of the fruit giving it more quantity of vitamin C and a sweeter taste. Furthermore, the subtropical climate allows the fruit to be produced continuously throughout the year.
In Colombia there are several varieties of Feijoa, which is considered an important factor for cross-pollination to obtain high quality fruits.
FEJESSENCE products are made with Fresh Feijoa Pulp from Colombia.
The combination of vitamins, vegetable oils and antioxidant elements make Feijoa an anti-aging beauty product. Not only does it moisturize the skin by promoting cellular reproduction, but it also stimulates the production of elastin which is basically useful for preventing the appearance of wrinkles. We see all its properties:
The high quantity of vitamin C, like citrus fruits, pineapple and strawberry, makes Feijoa a powerful antioxidant and helps to stimulate microcirculation, reduce wrinkles and skin spots, illuminate the skin and stimulate production of collagen
With antioxidant power, which bring benefits to the blood and tissues, counteracting free radicals, offering itself as a support and reinforcement of our immune system.
liposoluble antioxidant. It protects the organic tissues from the degenerative action of free radicals, slows cellular aging and is a real cure for the skin
Antioxidant and anti-aging: regulates cell development and tissue regeneration. It is indicated for numerous skin diseases.
Vitamin B2 or Riboflavin Helps maintain the quality of tissues for the beauty of the skin, nails and hair.
Required for cellular respiration. It works with enzymes in the use of cellular oxygen. In the long run, oxygen-free cells age earlier and die.
Responsible for multiple activities at the skin level, therefore determines an improvement in the barrier effect of the epidermis and an increase in skin resistance to external aggressions. It reduces cutaneous hyperpigmentation because it inhibits the transfer of melanosomes (of melanin-containing vesicles) from melanocytes to keratinocytes. Vitamin B3 is also able to stimulate fibroblasts to produce more collagen and is therefore responsible for improving elasticity and skin tone
Rebalance oily skins by regulating sebum production. Very useful to strengthen the immune system, to treat depression, to protect and counter the onset of cardio-vascular diseases.
Which guarantees the correct formation of the fetus' nervous system. While for children of growth age, it allows the correct bone formation, a deficiency of vitamin B9 could cause anemia.
A study by Hyeon Ho Kim and colleagues, from the College of Medicine of the National University of Seoul (Korea), revealed the potential of these fatty acids in masking the marks left on the skin by the passage of time. The results were published in the Journal of Lipid Research.
Help to counteract skin aging, hinder the appearance of wrinkles, keep the skin smoother and younger.
The Omega 6 can also bring benefits to the skin, in fact it is able to fight acne, avoiding to let it flow into its most serious conditions. Furthermore the help of the Omega 6 is remarkable for all those who are suffering from certain pathologies such as psoriasis.

Astringent action if a sebaceous hypersecretion like acne is found
Cause Feioja to be a very natural remedy to counteract skin aging, epithelial tissues and internal organs, to reduce the signs of aging and to give cellular compactness. Moreover this property is excellent for a good functioning of the circulatory system.
Very important role in reducing the damage caused by free radicals, and consequently in aging. Moreover the presence of quercitin and canferolo in the pulp, according to some studies, could also have an anticancer effect, which would make the Feijoa even more appreciated.
Its high content helps to lower the contents of triglycerides and cholesterol (especially the "bad" one) in the blood.
Such as calcium, iron, phosphorus, sodium, potassium and magnesium.
An amino acid involved in growth processes, which is good for children and pregnant women.
Considerable iodine content (3mg / 100g), feijoa has a great preventive property against thyroid diseases, such as goiter (enlargement of the thyroid due to iodine deficiency which prevents the correct synthesis of thyroid hormones).
In addition to chlorophyll, it contains the ALFA 3 complex, which is able to oxygenate the cells of the whole body.
