We stock two varieties of water for making skincare products: Hydrolats and Hydrosols.
A hydrolat is the by-product of the steam distillation process (used for essential oils). They are the natural waters collected after the distillation process that extracts the essential oil.
A hydrosol is where the essential oil is dispersed into the water. You can not produce essential oils without also producing a hydrosol. Hydrosols are different from traditional “floral” waters because they can also be distilled from the leaves, bark, stems, roots and other parts of the plant.
Hydrolats and hydrosols are incredibly gentle, safe, simple-to-use. The benefits of both include keeping skin hydrated, soothing of redness or skin inflammation and soothe sunburns.
How to Use Hydrolats and Hydrosols
To get the best out of these products, simply use them as a cleanser or toner or mix them with other waters. Each product can be used to create cleansers, toners, spot treatment, face mask sheets and hair masks. Hydrolats are also excellent for creating your own creams and lotions for the face and body.
