DESCRIPTION: 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.
Neroli Hydrosol, also known as Orange Blossom, is distilled from the Citrus sinensis flowers. It is one of the most versatile hydrosols and it contains minute amounts of the pricey neroli essential oil. In skin care, it serves as an astringent toner suitable for oily, acne-prone skin types. It can also have a calm and soothing psychological effect.
Our Neroli hydroxyl is clear to pale coloured with a soft floral, herby and fruity fragrance. It has a light-medium intensity that can be used directly on dry skin.
