An ancient symbol of love, roses have been famous for thousands of years.
One sniff of a rose and you’re treated to a multi-layered fragrance. Roses are a made up of a blend of complex yet delicate compounds, making it a scent that’s instantly recognizable.
You’ll find roses in many of our products. Whether it’s rose oil, rose petals, rose water, rose wax, rosebuds or rose absolute, roses give our delights a soothing touch and a beautiful scent.
The rose oil we use comes from gently steam distilling damask rose petals. Its fragrant nature lends itself perfectly to products like our Rose Jam Bubbleroon to give it a super soft and silky texture with a delicate scent. It also softens chapped lips in the sweet and hydrating Rose Lollipop Lip Balm. Dry, rough, irritated or mature skin? You’ll want to reach for products with plenty of rose oil, which helps soothe and restore skin.
Just like rose oil, rose absolute is obtained through a distillation process. The end product is often described as “the true essence of rose” because of its intensely fragrant scent. It’s like a thicker version of rose oil but with a scent that really packs punch. You’ll find it in Dream Cream Body Lotion and our fan fave Rose Jam Shower Gel, where it soothes, calms, moisturizes and perfumes the skin.
Fresh, dried, chopped or whole, we pack some of our most beloved products with rose petals. Rose petals provide soothing, toning and calming properties especially for irritated skin. They’re also gentle, which is why we suggest Rosy Cheeks Fresh Face Mask and our Soak and Float Shampoo Bar for sensitive skin.
For centuries, rose water has been used as a skin-soothing ingredient. Ancients Greeks and Romans would infuse rose petals in water (just like making tea) and it’s still how we do it today. We use rose water in Eau Roma Water Toner Water and Ultrabland Facial Cleanser, two of our gentlest products, because it helps skin retain its moisture and is mildly astringent, so skin is left looking balanced and even.
Extracted from rose concrete (a substance that’s left behind after soaking rose petals in natural alcohol and then filtering the mixture many times), rose wax is a compound that has a subtle scent and a thick, emollient texture. It gives Ultrabland a rich texture that’s not just moisturizing, but protective, too!
