Hydrolates are water condensates, i.e. the by-products of essential oil production by way of steam distillation. This colloidal microparticle system of plant actives (the sol) contains various hydrophilic biologically active substances and a small amount of essential oil, which functions as a preservative for the hydrolates by extending their use-by date up to 2 years.
These plant waters have a more subtle and delicate scent compared to essential oils.
Hydrolates contain as little as 0.01 to 0.1% of essential oils. As a result, they can be used safely and effectively for adult and children aromatherapy.
Unlike the production of aqueous emulsions of essential oils, during the production of hydrolates, the essential oil is distributed in the form of fine particles that form a stable colloidal system, which does not require additional stabilisation using emulsifiers. Recent studies have shown that hydrolates have antibacterial and antifungal effects.
Water procedures are an integral part to any spa treatment. Due to their acidic pH, hydrolates are excellent for skin hydration, cleansing, rejuvenation, and for maintaining skin’s condition. Hydrolates can be used in the following spa procedures:
Home and office environment:
Hydrolates can be safely used as sanitary products:
Due to their skin-friendly acidic pH of 3.5-6.5, hydrolates are excellent for use in the production of cosmetics, e.g. for enriching the compositions of creams, lotions, soap, shampoo, and other products.
– Store in a dark place below 17°C.
– Storing at room temperature significantly reduces the shelf life of the hydrolate.
– Hydrolates may become slightly cloudy at ambient temperatures above +10°C.
