Witch Hazel Hydrolate – Hamamelis virginiana Leaf Water (extract) – 250ml


Flower Tales Witch Hazel Hydrolate is obtained by ultrasound assisted extraction from the leaves of Hamamelis virginiana, a plant originating from North America. It can be considered as a proper extract and not just as a simple aromatic water.

Witch Hazel is rich in tannins and has astringent and purifying properties, it helps close pores and reduces the excessive production of sebum, making it ideal for oily or impure skin, but also sensitive or irritated skin. Its vasoprotective properties make it effective at addressing conditions such as rosacea or broken capillaries.

Olfactory note: Head

FLOWER TALES QUALITY: Unlike most flower waters, Flower Tales Witch Hazel Hydrolate is not obtained by distillation, but by ultrasound assisted extraction. This modern extraction process gives a herbal water that is richer in active compounds, without damaging those that are thermolabile (easily destroyed by heat).

No alcohol or solvents are used in the process: only water. Ultrasound assisted extraction uses less energy than distillation and is a sustainable, environmentally-friendly technology.

No extraction process is substitute for quality of the raw material: we selected an Italian supplier to guarantee superior quality, traceability and a short chain. Only the leaves of plants grown in the northern Apennine Mountains of Italy are used for this delicately scented floral water.

Flower Tales Witch Hazel Hydrosol is a natural product and its bacterial count must be kept in check with the use of preservatives and stabilisers. A completely “green” solution such as benzyl alcohol+sodium benzoate+potassium sorbate could be poorly tolerated by some individuals, especially for an everyday product such as floral water. We therefore opted for a mix containing phenoxyethanol, which while not considered 100% natural, is completely safe and well tolerated even by very sensitive skin. For transparency, we show here the full list of ingredients, including those in minimal quantities which would not normally be listed: Hamamelis virginiana Leaf  Water, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Tetrasodium glutamate diacetate

Solubility: water soluble

USES: as a tonic or instead of water in emulsions and gel to enhance the properties of the finished product.

INDICATIONS: oily or impure skins; excessive secretion of sebum; dilated pores; rosacea; dilated capillaries.

APPLICATIONS: Aftershaves; facial toners; make up removers; cleansers; natural remedies for broken capillaries.
