Witch Hazel Hydrosol
Witch hazel hydrosol is a byproduct of the steam distillation process used to extract essential oil from the witch hazel plant. It is a gentle and soothing liquid that is often used in skin care products due to its numerous benefits for the skin.
One of the key benefits of witch hazel hydrosol for the skin is its ability to act as a natural astringent. This means it can help to tighten and tone the skin, making it particularly useful for people with oily or acne-prone skin. It can also help to reduce the appearance of pores and prevent the buildup of bacteria that can lead to breakouts.
Witch hazel hydrosol is also anti-inflammatory, making it useful for people with sensitive or irritated skin. It can help to reduce redness, soothe itchiness, and calm inflamed skin. It is gentle enough to be used on all skin types, including sensitive skin.
In addition to its astringent and anti-inflammatory properties, witch hazel hydrosol is also moisturizing and can help to keep the skin hydrated and healthy. It contains natural antioxidants that can help to protect the skin from free radical damage, which can lead to premature aging.
Witch hazel hydrosol can be used in a variety of ways in skin care. It can be used as a toner after cleansing, as a refreshing mist throughout the day, or as a soothing compress for irritated or inflamed skin. It can also be added to DIY skin care recipes, such as face masks or serums.
Overall, witch hazel hydrosol is a versatile and beneficial ingredient for skin care. Whether you have oily or dry skin, sensitive or acne-prone skin, or just want to keep your skin healthy and hydrated, witch hazel hydrosol can be a great addition to your skin care routine.
BOTANICAL NAME: Hamamelis (Greek - name for another plant) virginiana (Virginia)
EXTRACTION: Steam Distillation
DESCRIPTION: Witch Hazel hydrosol is a water distillate extracted from the witch-hazel shrub, or the Hamamelis virginiana. The witch hazel plant is found in North America and has been used in traditional indigenous medicine for centuries. Witch hazel is an astringent with multiple skincare benefits. Indigenous cultures in North America use this astringent to treat swellings, inflammations and tumors. Their healing methods using this ingredient were adopted by early Puritan settlers once they arrived from Europe. It was Dr. Charles Hawes who discovered that steam distillation of witch hazel stems and bark produced stronger healing capabilities and was the first to market witch hazel as “Hawes Extract” in Essex, Connecticut at the end of the 19th century. Witch hazel hydrosol is clear and colourless and has an innate ability to sooth, calm and cool skin. It contains astringent tannins gallic acid, hamamelitannin and proanthocyanidins that have a drying effect on the skin.
KEY COMPONENTS: gallic acid, hamamelitannin, proanthocyanidin
FOUND IN: AFTERSHAVE – Bay Rum, AFTERSHAVE – Muskoka, CLEANSE – Tea Tree & Aloe Vera, Sweet Orange Gel Cleanser, Sweet Orange Exfoliating Cleanser, Spot Dabber for Acne Prone Skin, Skin Care Starter Kit for Oil Skin, Skin Care Starter Kit for Men
Sweet Orange Essential Oil
Sweet Orange Essential Oil is a popular and versatile essential oil that is extracted from the peel of sweet oranges. It is a natural and powerful oil that is commonly used in aromatherapy, skincare, and hair care products. It has a sweet, citrusy scent that is both uplifting and energizing, and it is loaded with a variety of beneficial properties that can improve the overall health of the skin.
One of the most significant benefits of sweet orange essential oil for the skin is its ability to promote collagen production. Collagen is a protein that is responsible for keeping the skin firm, plump, and youthful-looking. As we age, collagen production decreases, which can lead to fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Sweet orange essential oil helps to stimulate collagen production, which can improve the elasticity and firmness of the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Sweet orange essential oil is also a natural antioxidant, which means it can help to protect the skin from free radical damage caused by environmental pollutants and UV radiation. Free radicals can cause oxidative stress in the skin, leading to premature aging, dullness, and uneven skin tone. The antioxidants in sweet orange essential oil help to neutralize these free radicals, protecting the skin from damage and promoting a healthy, glowing complexion.
In addition to its anti-aging benefits, sweet orange essential oil is also effective in treating acne-prone skin. It has natural antimicrobial properties that can help to kill acne-causing bacteria, reducing the severity and frequency of breakouts. Sweet orange essential oil also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help to calm and soothe inflamed, irritated skin, reducing redness and swelling.
Overall, sweet orange essential oil is an excellent addition to any skincare routine, providing a range of benefits that can improve the health and appearance of the skin. With its uplifting scent and powerful properties, it is a must-have for anyone looking to achieve healthy, radiant skin.
BOTANICAL NAME: Citrus (from Latin for citron) aurantium (orange) var. dulcis (sweet)
EXTRACTION: Cold pressed
DESCRIPTION: Sweet orange essential oil is squeezed from the peels of the popular fruit. Its main component is limonene, which is known for being a strong antioxidant acting as an effective cleaning agent to keep pores clear of excess oil and pollutants. The essential oil is a yellowish-orange to brown in colour and the scent is a bright, uplifting citrus, exactly what you smell when peeling an orange.
KEY COMPONENTS: d-Limonene, aldehydes
Love this cleanser!
Love the ingredients, smell, and feel!
Loving this cleanser!
I'm approaching my 40s and realized I've never really had a good skin care routine. I wanted to find something simple, clean, natural and Canadian made. Loving the cleanser so far! My skin feels good, not dry, my blemishes have cleared up and no reaction to the scent or ingredients.
Sweet orange gel ckeanser
I love this product, leaves my skin feeling clean & refreshing,, removes any oil buildup. Have been purchasing this product for many years.
My favorite cleanser
I've been using this product for several years now. It smells fresh, cleans my skin thoroughly, and doesn't dry it out. I can't imagine using anything else!
I use this daily
I’ve been buying this product for over a year now, and I’m really happy with it. Texture’s great — just soapy enough of a feel without drying the skin —, lovely smell, seems to remove makeup well. And I especially love that it’s made up of all-natural ingredients and comes in a glass container.
Ce gel est vraiment parfait ! J’utilise ce gel cleanser depuis peu et il redonne de l’éclat à ma peau. J’ai la gamme complète de jour et elles font parti de ma routine de soin à tout les jours Je recommande et j’ai une peau mixte
We are so thrilled you love the products!! Thank you for shopping with us we can't wait to serve you again!!
I like a cleanser that lathers up a bit and I get that with this. The smell is so nice and my skin feels wonderful. I follow up with the Nordic Boost (and Reflector sunscreen in daytime) and I’m good to go. I keep coming back for these products!
New customer, and big fan
A friend of mine gifted me the bubble bath, and since then I have purchased a few products, and love every single one! I have oily, sensitive skin and this cleanser is gentle and leaves my skin feeling so fresh and clean
Another great product by Cocoon Apothecary! I took the skin quiz and this is the cleanser that was recommended. I love it and so does my skin.
Love this one!
Awesome product! Will keep buying for sure.
Pamper your skin with this wonderful light cleanser!
I love this light gel cleanser! Again, it is light with a lovely fresh scent. After I cleanse my skin, it feels so clean. There is no heavy or dry feeling to my skin. It is such a great product for use over the summer season. I have purchased this line many times, and will continue to use it. My skin feels so pampered!
Orange Gel Cleanser
Second time purchasing and just love it. Delivered to me door too!
Gentle, smooth, and effective. Love this cleanser!
A tremendous level of care put forth by this wonderful shop for a relatively small order. Nicely packaged and delivered promptly. The cleanser smells great and is just what I was seeking. Highly recommended.
J’adore ce produit, l’odeur est totalement à mon goût.
Orange gel cleanser
Great fresh scent and doesn’t strip the skin of moisture. I love the ingredients and feel on my sensitive skin. I didn’t break out introducing this to my skin.
Thank you for your review. We love the Orange Cleanser great for these hot summer days to keep the oil at bay. Enjoy
The sweet orange gel cleanser smells delicious and invigorating, and my face feels sparkly clean and refreshed after using it. LOVE!!
Perfect for my morning routine.
It can be challenging to find a gel cleanser that doesn't leave my skin too dry. This works well to remove makeup and oil in my t-zone without drying out the rest of my face. And it smells great!
Loving it I feel fresh and clean and my skin doesn't get dry
This cleanser cleans my skin without stripping it. My skin feels refreshed but not like it’s been resurfaced after cleansing.
