The Beauty Benefits Of Rosa Damascena

For ages,
roses have been considered to be one of the most beautiful flowers in the world. Since
ancient time roses have been symbol of femininity and purity and played central
role in many stories, legends and ancient myths. Nevertheless, roses are not
just pretty flowers – their numerous therapeutic benefits make them one of the
most preferred ingredients among skin care manufacturers.

There are
two main types of products obtained from rose, that are used for the formulation of skin care – rose
essential oil and rose hydrosol (also known as hydrolat). The hydrosol is
by-product from the steam distillation of the oil and even though it’s diluted,
compared to the oil, it works wonders for the skin when applied topically.

Today we’ll
be talking about one particular type of roses that we, at La Mav, treasure
highly. After many years of research, we’ve proven numerous times the efficacy
of Rosa Damascena as skin care ingredient and we would like to tell you why we
love it so much. Trust us – there is more to roses than their gorgeous flowers
and lovely scent!

Reduces and Controls Inflammations

More than
100 naturally occurring compounds (phenolic compounds being the most abundant)
can be found in rose extract, some of which are believed to have antiseptic
properties. Because of its rich chemical
composition, Rose Damascena distillate (also known as rose water) possesses the
power to counteract inflammation, by suppressing the growth of certain types of
bacteria. By controlling inflammation, Rose water allows the skin to recover
faster and restores its integrity.

Damascena distillate has mild astringent properties and works great as toner
acne-prone skin that also presents sings of sensitivity, dryness or dehydration. Rose water refreshes
the skin, without leaving it feeling tight and stripped of its natural oils
(common problem that occurs with the frequent use of alcohol containing toners).
Rose water is great addition to 
homemade facial cleansers, especially when
combined with
 Jojoba oil.

Speaking of toners, infused with Rose water…
