Fresh Pink in Everyday Gray – Roses are gorgeous not only in the vase, but also in the skin care. In the form of rose petal hydrolate they not only provide you with a great moisturizer, but also a carefree care experience for every skin type. How the Hydrolate, also known as Rose Water works, and what makes it one of the more exclusive ingredients, you’ll find out here!
In the valley of roses – the way to organic rose hydrolate
It is still pitch black when the alarm clock rings at the rose pickers. At 4 o’clock in the morning, the harvest begins on Bulgaria’s shimmering pink fields. But it’s worth it because they bring out the most coveted rose oil in the world.
When the temperatures are still fresh and taupe beads sparkle on the Damascus roses, their oil content is highest. With the rising sun it decreases and has already sunk to 30-40% at noon. That’s why the spell is usually over by 9am. And yet it takes 1 ton of flowers to win only up to 300 grams of rose oil!
In every bottle of our FIVE facial serum with organic rose blossom hydrolate as the main ingredient, there is a whole sea of rose petals. We rely on roses from organic farming. The valuable active ingredients of the organic flowers are concentrated by steam distillation in a hydrosolate, which brings not only a lot of
moisture but also the positive properties of the Damascene Rose. And there is something for every skin type …
Rosenblütehydrolat your skin does so well
Like Cleopatra’s legendary cream bath, the Damascene Rose is one of those ancient beauty tips that will last. And that’s because they are awesome. Here are my top 5 reasons why you’ll love rosewater in skincare:
The hydrolate contains the most important properties of rose oil and adds plenty of fluid. Dry skin is optimally supplied and feels well-groomed. In addition, good skin hydration is the key to a fresh, youthful complexion. It prevents dryness wrinkles and premature skin aging.
Soothes sensitive skin
Rose Hydrolate has anti-inflammatory and regulates the pH. It helps to reduce redness and sensitive areas more quickly, or prevents your skin from becoming so unbalanced.
Smoothes the skin
The Moisture Kick cushions your tissue and makes you look fresher and firmer. At the same time, Rose Hydrolate contains valuable nutrients for a smooth, even complexion.
Has a decongestant effect
Swollen eyelids? Bye Bye! Rose water has a refreshing effect on the skin and promotes blood circulation. This supports drainage of accumulated lymph fluid, which causes overnight bags to form.
Strengthens the cell protection
Rose water contains a vitamin cocktail, which contains vitamin E among other things. This powerful antioxidant prevents oxidative cell damage. They are exacerbated by stress, sunlight or simply the many environmental factors that you find difficult to escape. Your cell protection is one of the top measures for a fresh look!
Rose water with impure skin
For many ingredients that are especially good for sensitive skin, the focus is on rich care and a minimum of irritation. Rose Hydrolate also scores well for blemished skin, so I would like to highlight this point briefly.
Rose water contains tannins and has an antibacterial effect. It grabs the evil at the root by killing the pathogens of pimples and causing the pores to contract – hi finer skin appearance! At the same time, the hydrolate regulates sebum production and is considered non-comedogenic, so the pores do not stick. So it does not come to a vicious cycle of dehydration and greasing, as is the case with some other, more aggressive ingredient.
With rose hydrolate, its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties work wonderfully together. That’s why it’s also a popular ingredient in mild facial waters and cleansing lotions. In moisturizing serums it provides care with a wonderfully carefree skin feeling.
Why moisturizer needs to contain water
Maybe you are surprised that I am such a fan of rose water. If you’ve been following my blog for some time or browsing through the FIVE website, you might like to remember my popular article, “Why water is not in, but nursing.”
It’s true that most of our products use waterless formulations in order to conserve less. Moisture serums do not come out without moisture. They usually contain ingredients with a hygroscopic effect such as glycerol or hyaluronic acid. By attracting water almost magnetically from their environment, these substances prevent the moisture from evaporating from the skin after application. For these thirsty molecules, moisture serums bring their own drink with them. A must in this case.
This automatically means preservation is needed. But do not worry, it works in a natural way and very gently for sensitive skin. The article “Natural preservatives – it works without alcohol” tells you how we conserve and what is important for the shelf life.
