Benefits of Rosa Centifolia Flower

Rich in vitamins

Rosa Centifolia contains vitamins and antioxidants that help moisturize dry skin. Its astringent properties help tighten pores and reduce the redness and inflammation due to distended capillaries.

Antiseptic properties

Rosa Centifolia contains up to 63% phenylethanol that gives the flower its antiseptic properties to treat acne and control skin diseases such as psoriasis and atopic dermatitis. The rose’s essential oil has also been studied and found to help in healing wounds.


The rose is also a gentle but powerful anti-depressant and is used in treating stress-related conditions. Its therapeutic scent soothes the nervous system and can help prevent panic attacks.

Safe for all skin types

An extremely safe ingredient, Rosa Centifolia has no known toxicity in general use and is shown to be non-irritating and suitable for sensitive skin.

Proprietary Petal Softening Technology

Petal softening technology allows the skin to absorb the nutrients of the petals without irritation. The actual petals are softened and stabilized by water-soluble polymers with emollient ingredients. This technology increases skin elasticity by moisturizing and nourishing dry skin conditions.
