INCI: Bulgarian Pink Rose (Rosa Damascena) Hydrolate
Hydrolats are distillates, “floral waters” or “vegetable waters”. Hydrolats are produced as a by-product of the extraction of essential oils in the process of steam distillation of plants. They contain dissolved components of plant material and small amounts of essential oil. The hydrolytes are in the form of a liquid with a delicate fragrance and pH similar to natural skin. Just like essential oils, they are pure plant essences, but in a milder and diluted form. Damask rose hydrolates have an antiseptic effect. They have moisturizing, soothing and regenerating properties.
