FSS Ecuadorian Rose Extract OS
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.
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

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

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.
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.

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
