The Benefits of Roses in Skincare

Roses say more than “I love you.”

Though we’ll never turn down a bouquet of these long-stemmed beauties, we’re even more in love with the wonders they do for the skin. In addition to being lovely gifts and gorgeous in a garden — roses are natural emollients — their deeply moisturizing and hydrating properties smooth even the driest skin and quench its thirst. Rich in antioxidants and vitamins (especially Vitamin C), they deliver enriching and strengthening nutrients to skin cells, promoting their regeneration. These blooms also have natural astringent and anti-inflammatory properties, enabling them to tone the skin for a lifted complexion and reduce the appearance of redness and irritation.

At Eminence Organics, roses have a special place in our hearts — and not just for their beautifying properties. From every purchase of Eminence Organics Sweet Red Rose Whip Moisturizer, $5 in proceeds go to support breast cancer research. Featured in Dermascope and Organic Spa, this enriching moisturizer contains sweet red rose petals and extract that work together to moisturize and nourish the skin, leaving it with a soft, smooth, velvety finish.

Not only do we support breast cancer research with proceeds from Eminence Organics Sweet Red Rose Whip Moisturizer, we also proudly participate in the CIBC Run for the Cure. This was the 10th year in a row that we have taken part — and our first time as an event sponsor. Last year, we had our highest ever turnout with 59 members of the Eminence Organics team (including one furry family member!) participating. This year, we raised over $30,000 for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation in support of breast cancer research, taking our total donations to $140,000.
