Rosa Centifolia Flower Water.

What is "Rosa Centifolia Flower Water" and what is its use?

The "Rosa Centifolia Flower Water" is the I.N.C.I name used to refer to thecentifolia rose hydrosol. This floral water is known for its unique, sweet and gentle fragrance. Rich in tannins, it is also credited with an astringent action, tightening dilated pores and thus contributing to refining the skin texture.

The Centifolia rose, a hybrid plant of unknown origin.

The hundred-leaved rose belongs to the Rosaceae family; its name refers to the large number of petals on the flower. It resembles a uniform, flexible bush that can reach up to 2 metres in height. This plant blooms from the month of May and the harvest takes place in the morning, at dawn. Its flowers are pink, red-purple or white, made up of numerous thin petals. Its geographical origin remains unclear; today, it primarily grows in Bulgaria, France (Grasse) and North Africa (Morocco, Tunisia).

From the flowers of this rose bush, steam distillation allows us to obtain two distinct fractions, the essential oil and the hydrosol, both used for cosmetic applications among others. The centifolia rose hydrosol presents itself as a clear, colourless liquid with a floral, subtle scent, with sweet notes.

The cosmetic properties of the hundred-leaved rose floral water.

This floral water primarily contains tannins, compounds known for their astringent and deep-cleansingproperties. It is therefore particularly beneficial for tightening the pores of combination to oily skin, even acne-prone skin. Refreshing, italso soothes redness and calms allergic reactions. Moreover, it is also recognised for its antimicrobial properties. Researchers have thus demonstrated its ability to inhibit the growth of microorganisms involved in acne such as S. aureus.

Furthermore, the hydrosol of centifolia rose is renowned for its fresh and floral fragrance that is easily recognisable and lends a pleasant scent to cosmetic formulas.
