At Heyland and Whittle, we pride ourselves on using as many natural ingredients as possible, not only because they smell lovely but because they offer amazing beauty benefits. One such ingredient that features in some of our best selling products is rose.
Rose gives products a really beautiful floral scent and conjures up images of English country gardens. As well as this, it provides fantastic benefits for both health and beauty.
Here are just some of the reasons that we use rose at H&W:
Soothes troubled skin
Rose is brilliant for helping to soothe troubled skin in a really gentle way, whether your skin is spot-prone or tends to get dry.
It is a really gentle ingredient that has antibacterial properties, moisturises and results in smooth, soft skin. This means that products like our Rose Soap are ideal if your skin needs a bit of TLC.
All of our traditional soaps can be used on your hands, body and face, so you can use one product to cover all areas.
Tones your skin naturally
As well as soothing your skin, rose helps to tone your pores, meaning they can look smaller. It also means the amount of oil your skin produces becomes more balanced while less dirt and oil can get trapped in your pores.
This can further reduce irritation while helping your skin look fresher, brighter and younger. You can get this effect all over your body with our beautiful Neroli and Rose Body Wash, which is a great way to start your day.
Rose contains anti-inflammatory properties, which means they can reduce swollen areas of the skin as well as redness. You might think this is odd considering most people think about deep red tones when thinking of roses, but it means that rose can be really beneficial if you suffer from eczema or rosacea.
Using products that contain rose essential oils - such as our Neroli and Rose Body Lotion - can leave your skin looking calmer and much less red, especially when used regularly.
Helps to relieve stress
It isn't just the effect that rose has on your skin that makes it such a great ingredient, its fragrance is also hugely beneficial to your overall wellbeing. The scent of roses helps you to relax and de-stress, working on the body and the mind.
This means that scenting your skin with rose or using it as a home fragrance - which you can do with our popular Neroli and Rose Reed Diffuser - can help you to unwind and deal with whatever the day has to throw at you.
With all of these benefits, it's no wonder that rose is always a popular choice.
