Buying a quality rose water

The Real Rose Water Difference

Real rosewater has been made for thousands of years. It’s distilled from pure rose petals and remains as nature intended with no artificial additives. Purvari Rose Petal Mist is clearly marked, “steamed distillate rosa damascena,” which lets you know that it was made by steam-distilling pure rose petals. 

 

Our Raw Ingredients vs Others

Purvari Rose Petal Mist is made using only two ingredients: pure water and the petals of organic Ganganagri and Pushkar wild roses. Our pristine rose petals are hand-picked on organic rose farms nestled in Rajasthan, “Land of Kings,” an area known as the jewel in India’s crown.  To ensure the purity of Purvari Rose Petal Mist, our roses are grown without pesticides or harmful fertilizers that could corrupt the integrity of our product or inhibit its skin benefits.  

When comparing Purvari to other brands, examine the ingredient listings. The longer the ingredient list is, the less pure the product. Additives are added to increase shelf life or replace natural ingredients. Often, if the roses have been over-processed, altered or irradiated, they will not have a potent rose smell. Some brands add fragrance to make up for the weak scent of poor quality petals. If you see fragrance on the ingredient listing, it usually indicates that the aroma is not from the rose itself, but a fragrance that has been added to satisfy the unknowing consumer. 

 

Our Process vs Others

Each bottle of Purvari Rose Petal Mist is 100% natural and made with approximately 250 grams of organic rose petals. We follow a traditional steam distillation process, handed down for centuries, that gently coaxes fresh petals to release microscopic droplets of rose oil and water-soluble nutrients.  Unlike other brands, our petals are distilled only once—ensuring that your mist contains all the whole nutrients of the rose. After distillation, the rosewater is cooled and mixed to suspend the natural oils in the water. We harvest our rose crop all year long and pride ourselves on the time and energy we put into producing the finest rosewater on the market.

There is a world of difference between steam-distilled rosewater and the partially or wholly synthetic concoctions produced in a lab and sold as rose flower water, rose flower extract, and in some cases, rose hydrosol.  Watch out for products that are simply water mixed with rose essential oil and fragrance; these do not contain the same beneficial plant compounds extracted through distillation. If you see fragrance added, it is often a sign that the roses have been distilled multiple times to remove as much of the expensive rose oil as possible, compromising the holistic properties and scent. We have also seen synthetic fragrance mixed with water and sold as a rosewater spray; these products have no therapeutic value for your skin and are nothing more than diluted perfume.

It starts with a rose: The Process of Making Purvari Rose Petal Mist

Roses have been grow in the fertile soil of Rajasthan, India for hundreds of years. The flowers grown in this region are prized for their rich floral aroma and the precious essential oil locked inside each petal. Purvari’s roses are grown in Rajasthan on organic farms without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers in order to preserve the natural wholesomeness of the flowers.  

The roses bloom sporadically throughout the year in Rajasthan’s arid climate, and are hand-picked all year long as the seasons progress. As soon as they are plucked from the stem, the roses are transported to a distillation facility where they are distilled while still fresh and fragrant.

At the distillation facility, our roses undergo traditional steam distillation. We follow a time-honored process, handed down for centuries, that gently coaxes fresh petals to release microscopic droplets of rose oil and water-soluble nutrients like vitamin C. As steam is applied to the rose, the petals release their oils and nutrients, which are then condensed into pure rosewater. Our petals are distilled only once—ensuring that your mist contains all the whole nutrients of the rose.  All in all, it takes 60 grams of rose petals to make a single bottle of Purvari Rose Petal Mist.

After distillation, the rosewater is cooled and mixed to suspend the natural oils in the water. It is then sent to the United States where we bottle and package it for our customers.

Because of the time and care we take to preserve the wholesomeness of the rose itself, Purvari Rose Petal Mist maintains the beneficial nutrients of the rose itself. Roses are a natural source of vitamin C, geraniol, and quercetin—antioxidants that have be shown to exhibit mild anti-inflammatory, soothing, and brightening properties. Maintaining the efficacy of these natural glow-boosting nutrients is at the heart of what we do because your skin knows the difference.
