Rozenwas (Rosa damascena)
Rose wax is a rich base for skincare products with a reminiscent smell of roses, helping to soothe the skin and reduce redness.
Rose wax is derived from the concrete obtained in the process of making rose absolute, which contains the aromatic chemicals and the waxy element of the rose. The solid concrete is then washed with alcohol to remove the absolute, and the remaining solid is rose wax.
Lush purchase rose wax, oil and absolute from Senir in Turkey, where they are distilled from the Damask rose, a beautiful and fragrant species of rose.
