Distilled from the flower’s petals, the essence of the rose is one of the rare ingredients that has been a part of the beauty routines for so long since antique times. It is used in care products, fragrances and aromatherapy. Most common types include Rosa centifolia, Rosa damascena, and Rosa alba. It can act as an anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, moisturizing, antioxidant agent in cosmetics. Rose water has a pH level of 5.5, and is mostly used as a pH-balancing toner or face spray, or for its calming and soothing effect in aromatherapy.
