For centuries, roses have been associated with notions of beauty and love. As a matter of fact, the beautifying effects of rose dates back to the ancient Greeks and Romans who first used rose petals to perfume their baths. It is not surprising then, that roses offer benefits through aromatherapy, herbal medicine and beauty-enhancing cosmetics.

When it comes to skincare, roses have a long list of beneficial properties, making them ideal for treating the skin and uplifting the senses, which is why you will frequently see that rose oil and rose water are commonly used as an ingredient in natural skincare products today.

Rose water, rose distillate or rose essential oil extracted from Rosa Damascena not only has a heavenly fragrance but can rejuvenate and replenish the skin. As for its particular skincare benefits, roses have antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic and antiviral properties and as an ingredient has toning, relaxing and antioxidant effects. The natural oils help to retain moisture, tighten pores, restore suppleness to the skin, fade wrinkles and leave you with a glowing complexion. In aroma therapy, the natural scent of roses is simply a great addition to any skincare product by providing that extra relaxing element.

Together they rejuvenate, regenerate and lift tired, photo aged skin.
