Pakistani Rose Absolute
Rose absolute is used for its soothing, rejuvenating and toning properties on the skin. Its evocative, delicate fragrance lifts the mood and is thought to be closest to the smell of a fresh rose.
A collaborative effort between Pakistani farmers, a Turkish rose grower and Lush, this absolute is produced from Damask roses grown in Pakistan without pesticides, thanks to permaculture techniques. The rose petals go through a solvent extraction process to produce a fragrant paste called ‘concrete’ which is then transformed into rose absolute in Turkey.
