DESCRIPTION: Lavender hydrosol is a product of the distillation of lavender flowers. It has a similar scent to the essential oil but with a grassy/herby base. It contains minute amounts of the essential oil as well as other hydrophilic aromatic compounds and plants active; Therefore, it offers the same benefits as the essential oil but at a much lesser concentration.
Hydrosols are produced by distilling plant materials (leaves, bark, flowers, fruits etc) They have a scent that is reminiscent of the plant material’s essential oil but subtler – much less concentrated. They contain very little of the plant’s hydrophilic aromatic esters, so they are quite gentle on the skin.
We also call them Bioactive waters because they contain the plant’s cellular water and other volatile botanical compounds that have skincare and haircare benefits. The hydrosols we offer are specially distilled, they are not by-products or co-products. They come preserved for longer shelf life.
APPLICATIONS: Creams, toners, cleansers, essences, serums, gels, etc. in both skincare and haircare formulations.
