Soothing and toning
Rose Petal Infusion shares the same benefits with other rose-based ingredients. Rose petal infusion is soothing and gently toning on the skin. It is in some products of our Make Up range for their soothing, conditioning action on the skin. To make fresh rose petal infusion, we add the fresh petals of the Damask rose to boiled water.
The Damask rose (Rosa damascena, from the plant family Rosaceae) grows across Bulgaria, Turkey, Russia, India and China. It is a deciduous shrub with thorns and leathery leaves, followed by fragrant flowers.
Roses are grown all over the globe. They are native to the temperate regions of Northern hemisphere, primarily to Asia, with some species being native to Northwest Africa, Europe and Northern America. Rose petals are the source of rose oil, which is a complex material with a distinctive, sweet, perfume-like aroma. Rose is said to have been the first floral essential oil to be distilled and has been important in fragrances and flavours for thousands of years.
