The ancient tradition of rose being used in beauty is having a moment. For years, it has been used as a beauty enhancer. And we mean years: Rose water’s usage can be traced back as early as Mesopotamia, where it was used to treat headaches, nausea, and indigestion. Suddenly it’s been popping up everywhere from your favorite drugstore toner, to rose-infused water and beverages.
Kani Botanicals was born from the founder’s travels to Finland and Sweden, where she was inspired by how the locals protected and nurtured their skin in extreme weather conditions and in their cultural use of saunas. In realizing her Colombian heritage was quite similar to the cultures she had seen while traveling, in that the people that inhabited these harsh areas took care of their skin through using similar all natural remedies, the idea for Kani Botanicals was finally conceived. Today Kani offers an extraordinary assortment of handmade products made from the best local, organic, fair-trade and vegan ingredients available.
Two all-star rose products from the line are the Rose Tone, which is a hydrating and soothing face mist that’s made with rose water and aloe to hydrate, soothe irritated skin, and leave you feeling fresh and awake. “Rose water is a byproduct of the rose essential oil distillation, so there maintains some of the powerful properties of the rose oil, as well as the potent aromatic compounds, natural acids and sugars that have anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, astringent, hydrating, and great antioxidant properties,” explains New York-based celebrity facialist and aesthetician Tracie Martyn.
Add Kani’s Rose Blush Beauty Oil to your routine and you’re all set for your most glowing, radiant self. With an exquisite blend of Pure Rose, precious Rosehip, Evening Primrose and Camelina Flower Oil combined to defend against free radicals, increase elasticity, and feed the skin with beneficial vitamins and fatty acids such as Omega 3 and 6 to protect against premature aging.
And if not for the amazing skin benefits alone, the aroma of the floral oil will having you skip your favorite perfume.
