Rosewater might be a divisive ingredient in cuisine (too much and it tastes like we’re eating soap), but we can never get enough of it in skin care. Roses are a hero beauty ingredient, thanks to their soothing properties and the way they can make skin feel petal soft. Rose oils, rose extracts and even actual rose petals appear in various skin care products, but it’s the calming power of rosewater (water infused with rose petals) that we’re focusing on today.
Rosewater has anti-inflammatory and comforting properties, which make it an excellent option for all skin types, including those with sensitive skin. The all-natural ingredient softens and relieves redness and irritation. And let’s not forget that rosewater adds a subtle floral scent. In some cases, it can even give finished products a natural millennial pink color. Some mists and toners are composed of nothing but pure rosewater. The ingredient also works well when paired with other things from Mother Nature, like witch hazel and aloe. Besides toners, it can be found in cleansers, moisturizers, masks and more.
Roses are red, violets are blue. These 14 rosewater skin care products will deliver soothed, refreshed skin to you.
