Rosa Centifola, also known as the humble cabbage rose, Provence Rose, or Rose de Mai. This beautiful species of rose is well-known for its clear-sweet and honey-like fragrance, and only blooms in the right temperature & environment. It is widely cultivated in Egypt, France and Morroco.
Rose de Mai is also prized for its rose oil, which reaps an array of skin benefits, especially for dry and sensitive skin!
EWG Score: 1 (Very low risk of sensitivity!)
The essential oil of Rose de Mai is naturally rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals such as Vitamins A, B, C and amino acids. These act as emollients to smoothen and moisturise dry skin.
Rose de Mai contains 63% phenylethanol, giving it antiseptic & anti-inflammatory properties to soothe redness while preventing breakouts and skin infections.
Rose de Mai has even been known to have aromatherapeutic properties. A study has even shown that inhaling the scent of Rose de Mai inhibits excess water loss in the skin, while lowering the concentration of the stress hormone, cortisol in the body!
