Over 50 Years ago, Giuseppina Balestra started infusing botanical oils with truffles harvested from the family farms in Umbria, Italy. Giuseppina was selling her oils to a variety of celebrities while visiting Rome. Over 60 years later, her nephew Gabriel partnered with Italy's oldest university to unveil the secrets behind the extract used by Giuseppina and discovered that the truffles used in her recipes were, literally, antioxidant powerhouses.
We all have our favorite brands. By the time you’re in your 20s, you already have at least one go-to brand if not a handful. Our favorite mascara makes our eyes pop and our favorite red lipstick makes us feel like Marilyn Monroe or Taylor Swift. We’re never going to give them up. They’re a part of our lifestyle and we love them too much. But unfortunately, it may be time to reassess our favorites as they might be harming us.
