Skin Care

Our Range   –  Based on a three step regime:

Cleanse and Balance,     Nourish,     Repair and Restore.

Hydrosols – Cleanse and Balance (Step 1)    

Hydrosols are the perfect skin cleansers. They contain both hdryophillic and lipophilic elements in the distilled product, so sebum and dead skin cells are dissolved and removed by the oil-loving part and environmental grime clings to the water-loving end. So skin is left clean and balanced without the need for surfactants, added to Micellar waters and synthetic cleansers. Properly distilled hydrosols (quite different from flower waters made by adding essentials oils to water) contain valuable plant-extracts and  have been shown to be anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. They are gentle but effective on acne, rosacea and depleted skin. Their pH is perfect, to keep skin balanced – at between 5 and 6.

We grow all our own plants and distill within hours of cutting – before any of the botanical benefits begin to fade. We produce the following: Rose, Lavender, Calendula, Chamomile, Mint, Borage, Seaweed and Cornflower. These plants and others are also in our extracts, which are added to the serums and moisturisers.

Elixir and Serum – Nourish  (Step 2)

These ‘Nourish’ skin, delivering a specific group of ingredients to help skin repair sun damage, acne, or depleted collagen and elastin. They feel light and are absorbed quickly restoring a healthy, firm skin texture.

The Elixirs are well suited to mature skin, with existing damage. They contain a combination of more than 20 precious fixed and essential oils, each chosen for their particular properties. All oils are sustainably farmed.

The Serums are lighter and hydrosol-based, for targeted repair. These have added botanical extracts and high doses of either Vitamin A and Hyaluronic acid – Day Serum. Or Vitamin C, Ferulic acid and Vitamin E – Night Serum

Lavender, Chamomile and Copaiba Balsam – Stimulating sun-damage repair. Anti-inflammatory for rosacea and acne.
Rose, Frankincense and Sandalwood  – Powerfully antioxidant, whilst slowing the depletion of collagen and elastin.
Jasmine, Turmeric and Honeysuckle – For hyperpigmentation and uneven texture.

The Moisturisers – Repairs lipid and moisture balance, Restores (Step 3)

Rose Absolute with Algae and Green Tea or Rose Gallica

RoseAbsolute, Seaweed and Green Tea Extract
Our most popular product! The texture is luxurious and lightly scent with a beautiful and rare rose absolute. A moisturiser that actually makes a difference, utilising the abundant properties in rose, algae and green tea.

Packed with skin healers: natural Hyaluronic acid, phenols and saponins, Kojic acid, Vitamin A, COQ10, Sodium hyaluronate and peptides. These work beautifully together to strengthen skin and restore moisture loss whilst improving hyperpigmented sun-damage. Borage and Camellia Kissi oils help boost the anti-oxidants, whilst Argan, Pomegranate and Rosehip oils prepare skin for the A and B vitamins to stimulate new skin cell growth.

Rose Gallica
Particularly effective in soothing dry and sensitive skin. This light cream can be used at night and during the day and has a light rose/vetiver scent. The colloidal oats, natural hyaluronic acid in algae and rose all smooth and sooth, whilst restoring lost moisture to skin. Squalane, ceramides and Niacinamide strenghten the skin barrier and stimulate repair in the lipid layer. Scented naturally with Damask rose, Jasmine and Vetiver oils.
