Rose Water & Hydrosol
Roses have been known for millennia to be the best ingredient in skin care. Their exotic aroma is calming and soothing, and an aphrodisiac, the reason why they're the most popular flower for Valentine's day. But roses are just much more than a pretty flower that smells good. They have potent micronutrients, and are packed with Vitamin C. Roses have an abundance of phenolics compounds, and their water and hydrosols are favored for their refreshing, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antioxidant, nourishing and calming properties, making it one of the perfect ingredients in skincare.
Hibiscus tea, the preferred beverage of the ancient Egypt, is a highly hydrating infusion both to drink or to apply topically. The flower is rich in phenolic acids, flavonoids, and anthocyanins, which exert protective effects against oxidative stress and provide clinical anti‐aging effects.
Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that occurs naturally in the skin. It helps to bind water to collagen, trapping it in the skin, so that skin can appear plumper, dewier, and more hydrated. As we age, we lose collagen and hyaluronic acid naturally, so the skin becomes dehydrated more easily, and more dehydration equals more wrinkles.
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)
Niacinamide, also called nicotinamide, is a form of vitamin B3, and an essential nutrient. An important chemical in the treatment of acne vulgaris, for its anti-inflammatory actions and reduction of excess sebum production. It also improves blotchiness, reduces wrinkles, increases elasticity, and diminishes redness in women with aging skin due to sun damage. Studies have shown Niacinamide topical applications decreases water loss, improves hydration, and reduces redness and scaling, in people with eczema.
Panthenol (Vitamin B5)
Alcohol form of the B vitamin pantothenic acid. It's used an effective humectant as it binds to and holds water effectively, moisturizing the skin and helping it maintain softness and elasticity, improving the look and feel of skin.
