Collection: Skincare

Products that enable skin repair.

We have a special interest in research and development of products to stimulate collagen and elastin production and improve sun-damaged skin.

We have developed a botanical base of twelve plants on which we build our skincare range. Each plant has a unique set of constituents used to improve specific skin problems: 

  • Premature ageing - depleted collagen and elastin.  
  • Dryness and dehydration 
  • Inflammation - rosacea and spots.

                                                                                                                     Rose and jug in sun

We distil the plants to produce a hydrosol (a solution made up of tiny oil particles suspended in water). These make an excellent skin cleanser/toner in one, with no harsh chemicals.The pH is close to that of healthy skin - most cleansers use alkaline chemicals, likely to irritate and inflame sensitive skin. Hydrosols benefits

These bases are used to build serums and moisturisers that help return skin to being well-hydrated, calm and balanced, enabling optimal repair.

Rose Ab jar and flowersTwo Moisturisers: 

Rose Absolute Moisturiser (with algae and green tea) - Rose Gallica

Rose Absolute Moisturiser is packed with vitamins and minerals often lacking in mature and damaged skin. It has a high lipid content, but is formulated to melt perfectly at skin temperature, so there is no oily feel. Recently updated to include curcumin (shown to inhibit nuclear factor-KB). 

A labour of love! Rose Absolute is our most popular product and we think it offers all that depleted skin needs. (click link for further details)

It has rose, it all its forms: rose otto, rose absolute, rose hydrosol and rose extract. To this is added both naturally derived hyaluronic acid, a small molecule version and its salt, sodium hyaluronate.These also sooth the inflammation at the heart of most skin complaints. We add a powerful blend of peptides, ceramides and retinyl palmitate (vitamin A), together they effectively restore lost elastin fibres and collagen density. Precious fruit oils help protect skin from trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL) and potent antioxidants protect from further damage. The final element is the inclusion of rare, natural rose absolute, which has been applied to the skin of a chosen few for centuries.

Rose Gallica Moisturiser a lighter cream, but still with generous botanical extracts and distilled rose Gallica, drenched in polyphenols to reduce oxidative damage. Poly Hydroxy acids  a gentler alternative to AHAs) soften older skin cells, helping skin absorb the hyaluronic acid necessary to replete lost moisture. Kojic acid (a naturally derived tyrosinase-inhibitor), works with Niacinamide to reduce sun-spots and pigmentation. Lighter than the Rose Absolute moisturiser, but effective on signs of sun-damage. 

Elixirs: Jasmine: Lavender or Rose. Each contain more than 20 fruit oils mixed with essential oils, resins and absolutes, to help target specific skin problems. 

Massage Oil/ Beard Oil A luxurious, non-greasy feel with a soft scent of Orange blossom, Lime, Sandalwood, Rose and Violet leaf that is uplifting but unobtrusive. This can be used as a beard oil.
