Rose water is known for its pleasant fragrance and skin-softening properties. It is a great facial spray for sensitive and mature skin types and is even safe for children. Use it directly on your skin, or in a formula. The fragrance is passed on to the finished product, as are the skin-soothing benefits of rose oil. They have mild toning and skin cleansing properties and are generally safe for all skin types.
Rose Hydrosol Water can be used in lotions, creams, bath preparations, or directly on the skin. We produce our waters with their therapeutic value to the skin and body in mind, we do not sell our waters as a fragrance – although of course all waters will have a unique scent, some will be significantly lighter in odour than others – this is due to the plant material they are steamed from.
Essential waters are designed to add fragrance to your formulas, while hydrosol waters are designed more for their benefits to the skin.
