What Are White Rose Benefits for Skin?

The white rose (Rosa alba), or also commonly called alba rose, is a hybrid species belonging to the Rosaceae family. The plant cells extracted from this plant even out the complexion, revive the skin's radiance and reduce hyperpigmentation.

The Alba Rose or the Queen of Flowers.

The white rose is a species of rose native to temperate and subtropical regions of the Northern Hemisphere and has been cultivated since the Renaissance. It is a deciduous shrub with fragrant white flowers. It can reach about 2 meters high and is quite resistant to climatic variations, especially to cold. It easily supports a temperature going down to -20 °C.

Because of its colorlessness and its simple petal crown, the white rose has been a symbol of purity since Greek antiquity, when it was the flower of Aphrodite, the young goddess of beauty. Today, this ancient rose is cultivated in some European countries, including France, for its sweet and powerful fragrance, its essential oil and its cellular extract to be found in skin care products.

White Rose Benefits for Skin and Complexion.

In cosmetics, the alba rose is used in the form of cell extract also called native plant cells. These are derived from a biotechnological process that respects the environment and biodiversity. This technique aims at multiplying cells from plant cell strains in a controlled environment. This process allows preserving all the natural elements of the plant. Rich in essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals, the native cells thus obtained have a great molecular richness which offers them a complementarity of action compared to the other vegetable extracts (vegetable oils and essential oils).

The native cells of white rose revive 

the radiance of the complexion and 

fight against oxidative stress.

They protect keratinocytes in several ways:

  • Limit the production of free radicals due to pollution. This oxidation leads to cellular dysfunction and accelerates skin aging. Native white rose cells act by limiting the release of malondialdehyde (MDA) during lipoperoxidation induced by pollutant residues and heavy metals. MDA, naturally present in tissues, is a manifestation of oxidative stress. It is derived in particular from the action of reactive oxygen derivatives on polyunsaturated fatty acids.

  • Improve cellular respiration by increasing oxygen supply, which also reduces the creation of free radicals and promotes the elimination of toxins.

  • Limit the synthesis of inflammation mediators released by oxidative stress, which increases the skin's tolerance threshold and reduces factors that induce irritation and redness. These plant cells act by inhibiting the activity of three inflammation mediators synthesized at the hair bulb: two cytokines (IL1-alpha and IL-6) and a prostaglandin (PGE2), involved in vasodilation.

  • Support the natural mechanisms that create radiance. Native alba rose cells regulate the activity of keratinocytes and melanocytes and thus correct imbalances induced by aging or the characteristics inherent to the skin type.

  • Reduce excessive melanin production, which creates spots and deteriorates the uniformity of the complexion.

  • Increase cell renewal in a balanced way. As a reminder, this process is essential because it eliminates dead cells and strengthens the skin barrier, thanks to the keratin that the keratinocytes are responsible for. It thus induces a better cellular cohesion in the superficial layers of the epidermis, thus a better hydration of the epidermis and a better cutaneous barrier. To make skin new brings brightness and luminosity to the complexion.

Because of these multiple alba rose benefits for skin and complexion, approximately 375,000 native white rose cells are present in our radiance botanical blend. This night serum is best used in the evening, before bedtime, for a luminous skin in the morning. We would like to point out that it is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women due to the presence of essential oil.
