Whatever your complexion, Persian Rose is here to help you take the best possible care of your skin.
The sun is out and summer is finally here. If, like a lot of people, you like to wear less make-up at this time of year then skincare becomes even more important than usual so you can look your very best. Thanks to its special formulations, which involves the finest ingredients, Persian Rose’s range takes excellent care of your skin and is gentle enough to be suitable for even the most sensitive complexions. To help you look extra gorgeous this summer, we’re even offering 15% off all purchases until the end of July.
Although roses are the main component in our formulations, we also love to use other gorgeously scented and efficacious natural ingredients, which are specially selected to make our products as luxurious and gentle as possible. We use Bourbon geranium from Réunion Island in the Indian Ocean in our Body Lotion, Bath Oil and Shower Gel as well as having a dedicated single note Perfumed Oil, which smells absolutely gorgeous. Although Bourbon geranium oil is originally from South Africa, it has long been the opinion of perfume makers that the finest in the world is distilled on Réunion Island, with a distinctive, delightful scent that gives perfumes a fresh green and almost peppery touch that is truly irresistible. Nowadays, geraniums are still grown in vast fields on Réunion, most notably on the highlands to the west of the island where they flourish at an altitude of 1,000 metres above sea level. The oil is taken from the leaves rather than the flowers and is therefore usually harvested in the summer before they begin to bloom, with around 400kg of leaves producing a litre of oil. There are still thirty distilleries that produce the oil on the island, most of which still use the traditional method, which takes over four hours and involves throwing the leaves into a still, which is heated by a wood fire, which is kept alight by hand during the entire process. The resultant condensation, which contains the essence of geranium, is then chilled and then processed to make the precious oil that can be used for a variety of purposes, including perfume, soap, food flavouring and medicine.
If you’re planning to go without make up this summer then make sure your skin looks as healthy and glowing as possible thanks to our divinely scented Rosewater Cleansing Gel, which combines a special formulation of aloe vera and pure rosewater to create a delightful gel capable of thoroughly cleansing your skin and leaving it feeling soothed, refreshed and thoroughly pampered. It’s also gentle enough to be suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive.
