How do I Know if Roses are Used?First, let's talk about how to identify a rose flower ingredient. Sometimes you'll see the word "rose" in parenthesis, but usually, a botanical ingredient is identified by its genus and species (high school biology strikes again). The genus for roses is Rosa, and the species varies by the type of rose. In our products, you'll typically see Rosa Alba, Rosa Canina, or Rosa Damascena listed.
Roses & Skincare BenefitsEvery rose ingredient that we use has a slightly different skincare benefit. Water and extracts obtained from the petals and flowers of various rose species are used for antioxidant, anti-irritant, and skin-conditioning. Rose oils and waxes have moisturizing benefits. Not to mention, any product that contains a rose ingredient has a delightful scent.
Rosehip Fruit ExtractThe rosehip fruit extract used in our BeautyPrep Face Toner and BeautyPrep Face Moisturizer is grown from organic farming. Rosehip fruit extract helps hydrate your skin, protect from trans-epidermal water loss, brighten your skin, and much more. Active-Light Uner-Eye Concealer also contains rosehip fruit extract.
Rose Stem Cell ExtractThe version of "rose stem cell extract" we use in BeautyPrep Face Moisturizer contains four different organic, rose stem cell extracts:
- White Rose supports natural cell regeneration and the skin barrier. It also helps to restore the appearance of suppleness to your skin.
- Damask Rose helps to tighten pores, purify and smooth your skin.
- Rosa Canina (Rosehips) calms and brightens skin and helps prevent trans-epidermal water-loss.
- Pale Rose helps to rebuild the moisture barrier and provide skin suppleness for the appearance of newer, softer skin.
