Suitable for all ages and any skin type, this hydrosol is simply brilliant at attracting needed moisture to dehydrated skin and holding it there.1 It may be used as a makeup remover, to soothe overheated and irritated skin and to cleanse cuts and scrapes.2,3 This hydrosol feels cooling and tingly when applied to the skin but is easily tolerated by those with sensitive skin, including infants and elders.
Rose oil (the active ingredient in this hydrosol water) is known for its pleasing scent and skin soothing benefits. It makes a great facial spray for sensitive and mature skin types, and is even safe for children. Use directly on your skin, or within a formulation. The scent throw will pass into your finished product, as will the skin soothing benefits of rose oil.
Rose Hydrosol makes a terrific aftershave that appeals to men and, either on its own or with other hydrosols, is a magnificent addition to every kind of aesthetic product and treatment for face and body.4
