Centifolia Rose: ingredient of Mycream Women

The centifolia rose leaves contain pectin to a high extent flavonoids and anthocyanins. It is also active an essential oil composed primarily of citronellol, geraniol, nerol, linalool and farnesol, geranyl acetate, hexyl acetate, stearopteni, rosafurano, nerolossido, benzoic aldehyde, myrcene and eugenol.

Cosmetic use

Widely used in high-level perfumery, the essential oil of rose is a very valuable substance, just think that 1 kg of essence would require approximately 5000 roses.
During the filtration process of the essential oil, is obtained also the distilled water of rose that, for its balsamic quality and anti-inflammatory, participates in the formulation of cosmetics for sensitive scalps and frequently reddening and also of lotions for the cleaning of all types of dermis.

In addition to concentrated, from rose petals we get a dry lyophilized rich in pectin and a content of polysaccharides with remarkable moisturizing properties. For their peculiar chemical structure these hetero polysaccharides have the ability to assimilate considerable water amount originating fluid gel (hydrocolloids) that, coated on the epidermis, give form to a thin film but flexible and transparent with pH isoepidermic, having the ability to provide water to the stratum corneum and donating flexibility to the skin and hydration.

It is important to highlight that the water is restrained by pectins for stability of gelation and not for hygroscopicity, for which they have the possibility of supplying the liquid to the stratum corneum of the epidermis without then resume it when the temperature is high and deficient in humidity, or when it is exposed directly to the sun.
In adverse climate, the thin layer constituted by pectins dries externally giving shape to a real shield hygrometric that followed to hydrate the epithelial surface, preventing the dehydration processes.

Due to these properties, extracts of rose petals are used in the formulation of cosmetics for the eye contour, for dry sensitive and easily to the reddening and for the treatment of children’s skin. Extracts of Rosa are involved in the composition of after-sun products. The flowers of Rosa centifolia are present in a monograph of the Commission and the German Ministry of Health that approves the use to treat the mild irritation of the oral and pharyngeal membrane.
