Rose Hydrosol Or Rose Water? The Better Ingredient In Your Hydration Mist

Rose Hydrosol Or Rose Water? The Better Ingredient In Your Hydration Mist

Hydrated skin keeps dry skin and flaking at bay while also keeping skin looking youthful. One of the fastest and easiest ways to instantly hydrate your skin on-the-go especially over makeup is with a rose water hydrating facial mist toner.

You will find that various brands of rose hydration mists will differ based on varying  antioxidant rich botanical extracts, hydrating extras like glycerine and hyaluronic acid,  and choice of preservatives. 

Some hydrating facial mist toners can also be diluted with water and often contain heavy synthetic preservatives which can affect your skin if you are sensitive to irritations. 

The biggest and most important difference in hydration mists to look out for is the quality of the main ingredient - the type rose water being used.

Some manufacturers use 'Rose Water' while others use 'Rose Hydrosol'. 

In this blog post we outline the difference between both to help you choose a higher quality natural rose hydration facial mist for calm and moisturise dry, irritated skin, without irritating fragrances, synthetic chemicals or fillers. 

What is the difference between Rose Water & Rose Hydrosol?

Rose Water is a cheaper ingredient than Rose Hydrosols and is simply water scented/distilled with essential oils - like infused water. 

Rose hydrosol is separately made without any rose essential oil being collected in that process - so all of the essential oil of rose otto remains in the rose hydrosol. 

The end result of the hydrosol is more likely to retain skin-beneficial minerals and all the potential aromatherapeutic benefits of rose otto essential oil.

Rose hydrosols generally contain rose otto essential oil content of between 0.08% to 0.12%. Just 5ml of pure rose otto essential oil retails for over $260!

What's so special about your Bulgarian Rose Hydrosol?

The rose hydrosol we use is our Bulgarian Rose Hydration Mist is "food grade" and USDA certified organic that is analysed and certified by National Laboratory "BulRose" (see: which is the new European controlling body for Bulgarian Rose oil).

It is produced by one of the most famous and respected, family-run rose oil producers in Bulgaria's legendary Valley of the Roses. 

Their distillation process uses a stronger standard ratio petals to water of 1:1 which compares much higher quality than other rose oil suppliers with a general 1:4 standard ratio of petals to water. 

We have found their rose hydrosol is the most outstanding quality.
