DESCRIPTION: Our Bergamot Hydrosol is an aqueous solution of the steam distillates obtained from the peels of the bergamot fruit. It has a strong citrusy/minty scent. It is beneficial for oil, irritated skin. It doesn’t not have allergen and contains only the hydrophilic compounds of the fruit.
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 may contain minuscule amounts 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 a longer shelf life.
