Did you know that it takes about 1000 rose petals to extract just one drop of rose oil?
That’s how valuable rose oil is.
Not only that – but it’s a rare oil that possesses multiple benefits including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties.
Rose oil contains more than 300 compounds and is one of the richest, most beneficial essential oils on Earth.
Its complex, rich molecular composition makes it one of the most
nourishing essential oils for the skin, which is why we formulated our Rose Youth Elixir with exactly that kind of rose oil.
Where does our Rosa Damascena oil come from?
Our Rosa Damascena flower oil comes from the famous Rose Valley in Bulgaria.
It is here where the highest-quality Bulgarian Rose oil has been produced for centuries through a complex process of distillation and extraction.
It takes almost two months from the blooming of the flowers to producing the perfect oil that we use to make our products.
Let’s go more into depth about the benefits of Rose oil…
Hydrates and soothes the skin
Rosa Damascena oil does an excellent job hydrating your skin.
It also contains antioxidants that improve elasticity and reduce inflammation.
The vitamins, minerals and beneficial acids help improve the overall condition of the skin, even the complexion out and calm skin suffering from acne.
The antioxidants in this oil help to fight wrinkles, fine lines and sagging by stimulating collagen production.
Rosa Damascena contains high concentrations of vitamin A, and helps to increase cell turnover rates, which makes your skin appear rejuvenated.
It also promotes elasticity and prevents age spots from forming on your skin.
Rose essential oil can also help to neutralize free radicals and prevent them from causing damage to the skin.
What are free radicals?
Free radicals are unstable molecules that can cause oxidative stress, which is a leading cause of premature ageing.
Helps with dry skin
The “oil of youth” forms a protective barrier on the skin and prevents it from drying out.
Research has shown that the use of rose oil can improve skin hydration and reduce dry skin.
The moisturising and nourishing properties of rose oil help to soothe and calm dry, irritated skin, reducing redness and itching.
It’s also great for those with sensitive or reactive skin types who are looking for an alternative to synthetic moisturisers that can sometimes cause irritation.
Protects the skin barrier
Rose oil has been shown to support the health of the skin’s natural barrier.
The skin barrier prevents the skin from losing moisture and protects the skin from bacteria.
If you have sensitive, irritated or dry skin, it’s important to keep your skin barrier healthy.
The fatty acids and antioxidants in rose oil help to keep the skin barrier healthy.
