Rose wax is derived from the concrete obtained in the process of rose absolute. This concrete contains the aromatic chemicals and the waxy element of the rose.
The solid is rubbed or washed with alcohol to remove the absolute. The remaining solid is rose wax. This wax is natural and has many soothing properties for the skin.
Rose absolute comes from the flower petals of the Damask rose (Rosa damascena, from the plant family Rosaceae). Other rose species can be used to produce rose oils and absolutes. Rose is thought to be the first floral essential oil distilled. We also use rose oil from the same plant.
We are one of the main buyers of rose absolute in the world.
The Damask rose is grown across Bulgaria, Turkey, Russia, India and China.
We use rose wax in our new Ultrabalm for its soothing action on dry skins.
