What Are Hydrosols, and Why Skin Füd Uses Them Instead of Water in Their Products?
Have you ever heard of hydrosols? Chances are if you have, then you’re a bit of a natural healing aficionado. Hydrosols, which are sometimes referred to as floral waters, are a by-product of the steam distillation process used to extract essential oils from plants. But what exactly are they, and what good are they anyway? Let’s take a closer look at hydrosols and find out!
What Are Hydrosols?
Hydrosols offer many benefits due to their unique mix of components that can't be found in any other product on earth! Because they are much milder than essential oils and easier for your body to absorb, hydrosols can be used directly on your skin without dilution or added preservatives. For this reason, they make an excellent addition to any skincare routine. Whatever you choose to use it for, one thing is certain - hydrosols will provide unique benefits due to their distinct chemical properties that differ from those of essential oils making them truly unique.
Hydrosols, also known as floral waters, are created by the steam distillation of fresh plants and plant materials. Since hydrosols are made up of water and soluble plant compounds, many different parts of a plant such as flowers, leaves, bark and even roots can be used to make them. The process involves placing the chosen material into the distiller with water and heating until steam is produced. This steam then carries through the many plant layers containing volatile molecules from within the plant material before cooling down again and releasing what we know as hydrosols.
The components found in these floral waters vary greatly depending on which part of a plant is used during its production. For example, lavender hydrosol may contain linalool while chamomile hydrosol contains farnesene. Both molecules have different properties due to their chemical structure- making each type of hydrosol unique! Hydrosols don’t contain any synthetic fragrances or preservatives like other products do- making them more natural than other types of skincare ingredients available on the market today. They offer many benefits due to their antioxidants, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory compounds.
Are There Risks Associated with Using Hydrosols?
If you have allergies, there are certain risks associated with using hydrosols that should be considered before incorporating them into your routine. Certain plant materials could result in an allergic reaction. Lastly, keep in mind that not all hydrosol products on the market today are created equal so it’s important to read labels carefully before purchasing anything!
Why Skin Füd Uses Hydrosols Instead of Water in Their Products?
Hydrosols can offer numerous benefits when used correctly. Before incorporating any product containing hydrosol into your routine make sure you understand the ingredients on the label (See Skin Füd blog about how to read ingredients). This will help ensure that you get the most out of these amazing products while avoiding any unpleasant surprises down the line!
Skin Füd’s goal is to use the best, highest quality and safest ingredients in our products. The steam distillation process releases uniquely beneficial and healing compounds. With so much potential in these waters why don’t other skin care companies take advantage of all these wonderful benefits? It is simple, it raises the cost to manufacture their products and is not beneficial to their bottom line. Unlike other manufactures, Skin Füd makes quality of ingredients the highest priority.
