Enjoy the elegance of the rose in an old-fashioned facial cream. Ideal for youthful or mature skin as a day or nighttime moisturizer.
A delightful facial moisturizer that combines homemade rosewater with skin loving sunflower, grapeseed and coconut (or shea butter) oils.
Roses remind us of days past when roses were valued for more than just their beauty. Roses contain a substantial amount of vitamin C which results in an acidic rosewater helpful in reducing thread veins through the rose's tonic effects on the capillaries.
You can be assured these roses are absolutely free of the use of pesticides.
High in essential fatty acids, sunflower seed is a good choice for those with dry, sensitive, mature skin, or have a nut allergy and cannot use almond or hazelnut oils. Grapeseed oil is a light oil with virtually no odor. Both oils absorb into the skin without leaving behind an oily residue, therefore ideal for use in a facial moisturizer.
Coconut oil is added for its cool, creamy texture as well as its help to stiffen the cream. Its unique molecular structure allows it to easily absorb into your skin while not leaving behind a greasy film. The natural antioxidants found in coconut oil fight against free-radicals which damage connective tissue and cause the skin to lose elasticity and wrinkles
For those who prefer a substitution for coconut oil, we use what is called African Cocoa Butter or Shea Butter. The shea nut is harvested and ground into a rich vegetable butter that offers multiple benefits for the skin: protecting, nourishing, moisturizing, soothing, comforting, healing and regenerating. Shea Butter easily penetrates the skin allowing the skin to breathe without clogging the pores. The addition of shea butter offers a little fluff to the final cream .
In addition, a touch of aloe vera gel, vitamin E and geranium or sandalwood essential oil add their own healing attributes to this nourishing moisturizer.
Geranium essential oil is used extensively in skin care for its refreshing, skin-reparative properties and is a favorite with women. Its rose-like scent compliments the fragrance of the rosewater.
By request, there is now an option to choose whether you want geranium or sandalwood essential oil. The sweet/woody scent of sandalwood blends well with that of the rose and being a base note it. Sandalwood has an earthy, sensual lingering scent. Besides its hydrating benefits for dry skin, sandalwood acts as a balm for the mind and spirit.
Either one is helpful to soothe skin imperfections in the goal for a smooth complexion.
These key ingredients are so very beneficial as part of a daily facial skin care routine. Enjoy a little elegance and pampering you can call your own.
Moisturize as needed onto clean skin. Due to various skin types, you may only need a tiny bit at a time or you may only need a moisturizer as a night cream.
To minimize the risk of contamination make sure you have clean fingers before dipping into the cream or use some other form of tool for dipping.
