BENEFITS AND USES

Bamboo Hydrosol also has anti-inflammatory properties.
Bamboo Hydrosol is used to formulate cosmetic products with anti-irritant activity, the protection of skin and hair, integrity against oxidative processes and cosmetic products aimed at improving general blood circulation. Also recommended as a refreshing and soothing agent.
Our range of Hydrosols, Hydrolats or Floral Waters are 100% pure and free from preservatives.
Our hydrosols are specifically distilled for the hydrosol, not produced as a by-product. These hydrosols are distilled using fresh plant material allowing us to capture not just all the volatile components of the plant, but more importantly, the cellular water from the living plant. This cellular water, is rich with the water-soluble aromatic and therapeutic properties of the plant.
Hydrosols generally retain a small fraction of essential oil compounds (about 0.05 to 0.2 grams per litre) – mostly the gentler, more hydrophilic aromatic esters and alcohols. This is one of the reasons that makes hydrosols quite safe for children, the elderly, and anybody with pronounced sensitivities.
Our hydrosols are very versatile in use as:
- Facial Cleanser:
Moisten with a cotton pad and swipe across the skin of the face to cleanse.
- Facial Spray:
Close the eyes and lightly mist your face as a daily refresher.
