PRODUCT ABSTRACT

Our organic Hibiscus Hydrosol is steam distilled from the exotic, vibrant flowers Hibiscus rosa-sinensis native to East Asia. A natural source of alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), Hibiscus has a magical reputation in skin care because it encourages fresher, younger, and smoother looking skin.

Our lively and unique organic Hibiscus Hydrosol is known for its ability to cleanse, tone and balance the skins delicate pH, providing optimum moisturizing benefits for a fresh healthy complexion. Hibiscus contains a type of antioxidant called anthocyanocides, which are proven to protect and fight off skin damaging free radicals, including ultra violet radiation. One of the most powerful anti-ageing plant actives; it's no wonder Hibiscus is called the Botox plant.

Hibiscus Hydrosol has a magical reputation for increasing skin elasticity to give a stunning natural youth-boost. With the incredible ability to inhibit the activity of the enzyme elastase, which is responsible for breaking down our skin's precious elastin, Hibiscus actively combats the ageing process by firming and lifting your skin. Hibiscus Hydrosol also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce the redness of the most irritated skin, aids in acne removal, dermatitis, and eczema. It is a great cleanser and also aids in removing oil and dirt accumulated in clogged pores.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

PLEASE NOTE: Our range of Hydrosols, Hydrolats or Floral Waters are 100% pure and free from preservatives, alcohol and emulsifiers. These are the most genuine form of hydrosols (obtained by steam distillation of the plant parts): no infusion, no blend of essential oil and water; and no condensed water. These superior quality hydrosols are 3 to 5 times more concentrated when compared to other commercial grade hydrosols available in the market.

We guarantee a microbiological cleanliness of our hydrosols thanks to our stainless steel, glass system and our packaging procedure that includes the decontamination of all our bottles and caps with organic alcohol. We systematically do microbiological testing of all batches and publish the results on the analysis report for each batch. All our hydrosols are kept in a low temperature storage.

Our hydrosols are specifically distilled for the hydrosol, not produced as a by-product or even a co-product. These hydrosols are distilled using fresh plant material allowing us to capture not just all the volatile components of the plant, but more importantly, the cellular water from the living plant. This cellular water is usually lost under the conventional high pressurised steam runs for essential oils, or by using dried plant material. It is this cellular water, imbued with nutritious minerals, phytosterols, antioxidants, and countless other natural botanical chemicals, that imparts the hydrosol with the water-soluble aromatic and therapeutic properties of the plant.

Our exquisitely scented hydrosols therefore have a different make-up to their essential oil counterpart though they retain a small fraction of essential oil compounds (about 0.05 to 0.2 grams per litre) - mostly the gentler, more hydrophilic aromatic esters and alcohols. This is one of the reasons that makes hydrosols quite safe for children, the elderly, and anybody with pronounced sensitivities.

Our hydrosols are very versatile in use as:
Facial Cleanser: Moisten with a cotton pad and swipe across the skin of the face to cleanse.
Facial Spray: Close the eyes and lightly mist your face as a daily refresher. Store hydrosol in the refrigerator for extra-cooling skin relief.
Facial Mask: Mix the hydrosol with clay or body butter and apply to cleansed skin. Rinse after 10-15 minutes.
Bath Additive: Simply add to your bath water.
Hair Care: Spray onto cleansed hair and gently massage the hair and scalp. Do not rinse.
Deodorant & Perfume Spray: Mist under arms and as needed elsewhere to help prevent body odor.
Foot Spray: Mist the tops and bottoms of feet to help control foot odor and to refresh your feet.
