Hydrosols, also known as floral waters, are a by-product of the distillation process of essential oils. They contain soluble plant components and small amounts of essential oils, making them gentle and safe even for sensitive skin. They have a subtle scent. Unlike essential oils, hydrosols are much less concentrated, allowing them to be applied directly to the skin.

Properties of Hydrosols

Hydrosols offer numerous benefits for the skin, including moisturizing, toning, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial effects. They also have the ability to soothe irritations and support skin regeneration. Due to their gentleness, they are recommended for people with sensitive skin, for children, and also for the care of irritated skin, for example, after depilation or shaving.

Uses of Hydrosols

Hydrosols can be used in many ways in daily skin care. As a facial toner, they wonderfully refresh and hydrate the skin, restoring its proper pH. In hair care, they can be used as refreshing and moisturizing mists. Thanks to their mild, natural scents, hydrosols can also be used in aromatherapy, to freshen up spaces, or as relaxing mists for linens. In home cosmetics, they serve as a base for creating homemade masks, tonics, or creams.
