1. Rose petal hydrolate
The active ingredients of Damascene rose petals are obtained from steam distillation of organically grown roses. The flowers are picked in the early morning hours, as the oil content of the flowers is highest at this time. Rose petal hydrolate is known for its calming and harmonizing effects.
2. Ferment – vegan (!) lactic acid bacteria
Lactic acid bacteria preserve the product and cause a significant improvement in skin moisture. The probiotic ingredient uses the principle of fermentation for its preservative properties, as we know it from the production of sauerkraut or kimchi. By the way: Our lactic acid bacteria have nothing to do with milk.
Many natural cosmetic products are preserved with alcohol. We wanted to avoid this at all costs, as alcohol liquefies the skin barrier. This causes increased moisture to escape from the skin. However, with this product we want to achieve exactly the opposite: Namely, to store water in the skin. Thanks to the innovative active ingredient, we have succeeded in doing so.
Quality: organic, from coconut oil
Glycerin provides the skin with long-lasting and intensive moisture and works within the entire top layer of the skin. It promotes skin elasticity and has a barrier-protecting effect. Glycerin is one of the most powerful hydrating ingredients and is essential for a moisturizer or moisturizing serum.
Glycerin is often criticized as drying. This statement is only valid at an extremely high concentration, which is rarely or never used in cosmetics. In this case the glycerin would release the water bound from the skin into the air instead of keeping it in the skin. At lower concentrations – we use 4 percent – this is not the case.
4. Plant hyaluronic acid
quality: non GMO, from soy
Hyaluronic acid effectively binds moisture to your skin and provides tone and elasticity. The skin's moisture is thereby demonstrably improved. Hyaluronic acid also protects and regenerates the skin barrier. We use high molecular hyaluronic acid out of conviction.
With four percent, l-arginine is a natural component of the skin's own moisturizing system. This system is called the Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF). L-Arginine helps the skin to store water by preventing premature evaporation.
On the left you find the ingredients as we know them colloquially and on the right according to the INCI, the International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients.

Good to know
*Citronellol and geraniol are natural components of rose petal hydrolate. Relevant for people with allergies.
Hydrolates are extracted from flowers and plant parts. They combine the concentrated power of plants and have various positive and negative effects in addition to the fragrance. People with intolerances to certain plants often also react to the corresponding hydrolates. A single hydrolate consists of up to 200 chemical components - some of which can have an allergenic effect. Therefore, 26 allergenic components have been defined by the EU. These have always to be listed separately in the overview of the ingredients (INCI) and let people with allergies know that certain products should be avoided.
