Floral waters and hydrosols are often touted as alternatives to regular water in skincare. But do they really serve a purpose? And if so, what are the benefits?
You've probably heard of floral waters and hydrosols before.
In this article, we'll take a look at floral waters and hydrosols, and explore the benefits they offer. We'll also discuss how to use them in your everyday skincare routine. Let's get started!
What Are Floral Waters and Hydrosols?
Floral waters and hydrosols are essentially two similar products made via different methods.
Hydrosols are made as a byproduct of essential oil distillation and do not need preservatives as the process of distillation is normally so hot it kills most if not all microbes.
Floral waters are made by solublising essential oils with water and adding preservatives to prevent microbial contamination.
Both are very aromatic and would provide a natural scent to your formula.
They can be used as alternatives to regular water in skincare products, or as standalone products themselves.
