Besides it’s otherworldly scent, Skinny & Co. chose Rose oil primarily for its action on the skin. A 2010 study done by PubMed using Rose oil found, “Co-operative interactions between essential oil components may promote skin permeation behaviour of essential oil and its components.”3 In other words, Rose oil opens the skin’s pores to allow for better absorption of nutrients and moisture.
Rose essential oil has many other beneftits,
- Use as an antidepressant aromatherapy.5
- Use on skin wounds keeps them from becoming infected and encourage healing.6
- Use as a “Cicatisant” on the skin. (to fades scars, pock marks, and stretch marks.)7
- Destroys bacteria responsible for acne.8
- Strengthens hair and prevents wrinkles.9
- Use as a calming anxiolytic that invokes uplifting feelings.4
Pure Rose oil is one of the world’s rarest essential oils… There are times when there is none available. We as a company, must plan accordingly and buy as much as possible when it is available. For reference, it takes 8.5 pounds of Rose petals to provide enough essential oil for a single 9oz. jar of Skinny Rose Body Butter.
Rose is often considered a “love or hate” scent. However, we find that many who claim to dislike Rose, simply have never smelled an authentic Rose essential oil.. The artificial Rose oil market is huge!1 We are certain that once you try the real thing, you can never go back.
Skinny’s Rose products are crafted using only what is known as “Rose Otto”, and never “Rose Absolute”. The difference between the two is the former is made via gentle steam distillation, and the latter is extracted using chemicals and solvents.2 Just one of the great lengths Skinny goes through to ensure our products are completely chemical-free.
All in all? Rose is a WIN. It’s not only divine smelling, but it has a fantastic resume of effective uses for our skin. Once you try our ultra-pure patented coconut oil blended with some of the worlds most coveted essential oils? You can never go back. Try it for yourself with our Rose Body Butter, or Rejuvenating Facial Oils.
