How To Use the White Rose According to Your Skin Type?

The White rose is one of the most famous ornamental plants in the world. There are several species and varieties, mostly distinguished by the color of their petals. White rose is mainly used as a cell extract in skin care due to its brightening and antioxidant properties. Learn more about the White rose skin benefits in this article.

Interesting Facts About the White Rose in Skin Care

The white rose, with the botanical name Rosa alba, is a hyrbid species that belongs to the large family of roses (Rosaceae). It is native to the temperate and subtropical regions of the Northern Hemisphere. It has symbolized purity and innocence since Ancient Greece, when it was the flower of Aphrodite (the young goddess of beauty).

In skin care, White Rose is used in the form of hydrolate and cell extract, which is also called native plant cells. The latter are obtained by an environmentally friendly biotechnological process that protects biodiversity. In this process, the cells are multiplied from the plant in a controlled environment. In this process, all the natural components of the plant are preserved. The native cells thus obtained are rich in essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals and feature a great molecular richness that gives them a complementary action to other plant extracts (plant oils and essential oils).

The Native Cells of the White Rose for Sallow Skin

A sallow complexion is characterized by a lack of homogeneity and luminosity, a grayish color and an uneven skin texture. This phenomenon can be scientifically explained by an unbalanced skin renewal and too many dead skin cells that accumulate on the skin surface. The causes can be both internal (lack of sleep, poor blood circulation, skin aging processes, hormonal changes) and external (stress, cold, pollution, smoking, poorly performed removal of makeup/cleaning of the skin, excessive UV radiation, excessive alcohol consumption ...).

The native cells of the white rose act on several levels to restore radiance to the complexion. First, they regulate the activity of keratinocytes and melanocytes, correcting imbalances caused by the aging process or the characteristics of the skin type. They also increase cell renewal in a balanced way. This process is important because it removes dead cells and strengthens the skin barrier through the keratin produced by keratinocytes. This leads to better cell cohesion in the uppermost layers of the skin, resulting in better hydration of the epidermis and a better skin barrier. A “new” skin gives radiance and luminosity to the complexion.

Due to these properties, our night serum for radiant skin contains about 375,000 native cells of the white rose. The serum is preferably applied in the evening and works overnight to stimulate cell renewal.

The Native Cells of the White Rose for Sensitive Skin

The native cells of the white rose are also known for their soothing effect. They limit the synthesis of inflammatory mediators released by oxidative stress, increasing the skin's tolerance threshold and reducing the factors that trigger irritation and redness. These plant cells act by inhibiting the activity of three inflammatory mediators synthesized in the hair bulb area: two cytokines (IL1-alpha and IL-6) and one prostaglandin (PGE2), which is particularly involved in vasodilation.

The Native Cells of the White Rose for Hyperpigmented Skin

White rose native cells reduce the ability of melanocytes to produce melanin by inhibiting the enzyme tyrosinase. They do not interact with healthy cells. Likewise, thanks to their antioxidant properties, the native cells of the white rose protect the skin from free radicals, which are responsible for the development of signs of aging such as brown spots.
