Rosa Hydrosol: (Rosa Damascena floral-water distillate):
Instantly refreshing and relaxing, rose water has been used for millenia around the world to restore comfort to red and irritated skin. Rich in anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals that play a key role in the synthesis of collagen and elastin, these nutrients also helps protect skin from oxidative stress, giving skin a youthful and healthy look.
Rose water is an excellent choice for those suffering from acne, redness or weathered skin. The ultimate balancer, the pH of rose petals is nearly identical to that of human skin, so it is unlikely to cause imbalances or disturb the skin's protective acid mantle and pH levels.
Olivem 300 (Olive PEG-7 Esters): Olivem 300 is a non-ionic surfactant (active surface agent) and water soluble lipid (fat), derived from olive oil, that lends a richness and skin-softening properties to this gentle face mist.
Sodium Lactate: Naturally present in skin's moisturizing factor, this organic humectant and alpha-hydroxy acid, is the sodium salt of lactic acid. It is made from the fermentation of sugar (from corn or beets) to produce lactic acid. The fermentation product, lactic acid, is neutralized to create sodium lactate.
It's humectant properties- to attract and hold water in the skin, are really high, about 1.5 times more effective than glycerin. Thus, it improves the skin's barrier function, reducing trans-epidermal water loss and ceramide depletion, which can be caused by age, sun damage and environmental agressors.
Sodium lactate is believed to stimulate our skin's ceramide synthesis. Ceramides are lipids (fats), naturally present in our skin’s barrier. They help skin retain moisture, often referred to as the 'mortar' that holds the 'bricks' or 'building blocks'- the cells of our skin, together. Ceramides are most effective when combined with other skin-replenishing ingredients like fatty acids, cholesterol and glycerin.
Glycerin (vegetable): Vegetable glycerin, also known as glycerol or glycerine, is a clear, viscous alcohol, a liquid humectant, typically made from plant sugars.
Vegetable glycerin is a popular skincare treatment because of its moisturizing properties and powers. Research shows that applying glycerin to your skin may gradually improve its smoothness and suppleness. In fact, using creams containing glycerin, (like KAVANA's PHYTO-5 Face Cream), may increase skin hydration in as few as 10 days. (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/7906448/).
Vegetable glycerin may lead to better skin health, by helping sooth skin irritation, protect against infection and promote wound healing. Studies show that applying glycerin-containing products may protect your skin against irritants and microbes, as well as soothe inflamed or wounded skin.
Silk peptides: Hydrolized silk peptides are great for graceful aging because the large amounts of hydroxyl amino-acids they contain are known for their important role in regulating moisture content of the skin and water binding process. Serine in silk, helps form a protective barrier on the skin and lends it's characteristic silk-like texture to this luxurious, hydrating facial mist.
Allantoin: Allantoin is widely considered to be a versatile, safe, and effective skin care ingredient with many different benefits including smoothing, softening, and healing the skin and promoting the shedding of outer layers of the epidermis, cellular replication and healthy tissue growth. Most famously derived from comfrey's root mucilage, this emollient can also be chemically synthesized, into a fine white powder.
Panthenol/ Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid): Panthenol/ Vitamin B5: This ingredient is a natural form of Vitamin B5 (aka pantothenic acid) and can be found in plants and honey! It acts as a humectant and emollient, that helps attract and hold moisture, and offers anti-microbial properties, helping to counteract bacteria and attract and hold moisture, helping skin appear softer and smoother.
Rosa damascena essential oil: Legend has it that Cleopatra soaked her ships sails in rose water before sailing, so that the scent of this royal flower would follow her everywhere she went and filled her royal chamber with rose petals before Marc Anthony visited her, ensuring he would associate the scent of the flower with her, every time he smelled one!
Aside from it's lovely scent, rosa damascena essential oil has potent medicinal properties, valuable for both internal and external applications. Topical applications in skincare, have shown excellent wound healing capabilities, thanks to it's extremely powerful anti-bacterial, anti-septic and anti-inflammatory properties. Proven effective against bacteria that can resist even the strongest of pharmaceutical antibiotics, including Propionibacterium acnes (the bacteria that causes acne), just a few drops of this concentrated essential oil, can provide powerful protection against topical bacteria and infection, redness and inflammation.
Rosa damascena oil is also loaded with antioxidants and flavonoids, which are essential in fighting free-radicals and UV related damage. Vitamin C rich, Rosa damascena also helps with the production of collagen and elastin, aiding the maintenance of firm skin and graceful aging.
Long prized for it's scent, Rosa Damascena essential oil, derived from the hydro-distillation of rose petals, has been proven to provide relief from symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression upon inhalation. Especially beneficial to the parasympathetic nervous system, it has been shown to be beneficial to post-partum mother's, inducing psychological and physiological feelings of relaxation.
Since fragrance compounds are able to cross the blood-brain barrier and interact with receptors in the central nervous system, the immediate benefit of this ancient form of aromatherapy is tangible.Ingredients
