Rosewater (Rose Hydrolat)

Posted on


Rose hydrolat, a distillate of rose petals and water, is hydrating, cooling and slightly astringent. It is suitable for normal, dry, mature and sensitive skins. When buying rosewater, always check that it contains a preservative.


It can be used on its own as a gentle skin toner, and added to creams, lotions and gels. Because of the fragrance, it is a popular addition to bath products. It is particularly useful in eye creams and gels.


Rosewater mixed with a little glycerine (about 3%) makes an old-fashioned moisturising skin freshener.
