FSS Ecuadorian Rose Extract OS

Oil Soluble

Due to extreme environmental changes, it is growing increasingly difficult to find consistent botanical resources that can be matched in volume and quality over time. By sourcing a hydroponic material, the volume and quality of botanical resources are reproducible. Grown hydroponically, roses from Ecuador are not only consistent from year to year, they are also not subject to the variation seen in other roses which are cultivated outdoors. This ensures formulators that product development will likewise be consistent when using the Ecuadorian Rose in skin care formulations. Suitable for all skin types, but particularly beneficial for dry, sensitive and aging skin FSS Ecuadorian Rose Extract OS is an oil-soluble material which can be used to impart antioxidant protection and soothing, purifying and anti-aging benefits to the skin.

Rose extracts have traditionally been used in holistic treatments to soothe stressful emotional states. Once the use of Ecuadorian Roses transitioned into skin care formulations, it was determined that these extracts could act as a tonic, imparting an astringent effect on the capillaries found just below the surface of the skin. This proved to be useful in diminishing redness caused by inflamed and enlarged capillaries. Additionally, this extract was shown to have purifying and cleansing benefits when applied to the skin, making it ideal for treating puffy, swollen skin, particularly around the eye area. Ecuadorian Rose extracts have even been employed to help fade scars associated with skin conditions and stretch marks.

Roses grown and sourced from Ecuador are an excellent source of many beneficial skin nutrients including Vitamins A, B3, C, D and E, in addition to bioflavonoids, malic acid, tannins and zinc. Vitamins provide soothing properties to alleviate inflammation in the body, boosting the immune system by seeking out free radicals and toxins. They then work to neutralize any free-radicals and toxins before they attack our bodies. Vitamins also act as anti-aging agents by slowing down, or reversing, the oxidation of cells and tissues which causes the skin to become dry, lose elasticity, and have trouble regenerating new cells.

In addition to the numerous benefits provided by the vitamins found in Ecuadorian Roses, their bioflavonoid constituents add to the potent antioxidant activity of these roses. Furthermore, the bioflavonoids help maximize the effectiveness of the Vitamin C present in Ecuadorian Roses by facilitating the skin’s absorption of the vitamin while also protecting Vitamin C from exposure to oxidation.

FSS Ecuadorian Rose Extract OS is suitable for purifying the skin while simultaneously enhancing the cellular renewal process. The tannins found in Ecuadorian Roses have powerful astringent properties that help to detoxify the skin, while the presence of malic acid promotes the appearance of healthier-looking and smoother-feeling aesthetic. These two constituents work in conjunction with one another to exfoliate the skin while reducing signs of sun damage and aging. The result is a noticeable improvement in the skin’s appearance and texture.

Ideal as a volume-sustainable, oil-soluble, and quality-consistent source of material for a variety of skin care formulations, FSS Ecuadorian Rose Extract OS can be used to impart antioxidant properties and soothing, purifying and anti-aging benefits to reveal skin the is beautiful to the sight and touch.
