Japanese quince or flowering quince is a rose-like short shrub that forms beautiful orange-red flowers in the summer and produces yellow, knobbly fruits that smell like citrus in the autumn.
Djusie uses cold-pressed oil from flowering quince seeds, which has a sweet scent that resembles marzipan. The oil is a zero-waste by-product from the juice industry.
Flowering quince seed oil is rich in omega-6 or linoleic acid (over 50% of the fatty acids), omega-9 or oleic acid (approximately 34%), and palmitic acid (about 9%). In addition to fatty acids, Flowering quince seed oil contains vitamin E and carotenoids.
