Sanitize the dedicated containers and utensils you will work with, details in the general safety guidelines.

Preparation method:
In a glass or bowl mix the rose water, fruit acids and hibiscus powder. Sprinkle xanthan gum over this solution and mix vigorously until the gum is completely dispersed. It is left to rest for approximately 10 minutes, during which time the gel will form.
Add the preservative over the gel and mix well. The resulting gel is transferred to the dedicated container. pH: 5-5.5

The result is a light, refreshing, pleasant-smelling gel that is used as a face mask. It has a light exfoliating effect and stimulates the renewal of the skin, which becomes smoother and brighter. It can also be applied on the neck and décolleté. Application to the eye area is not indicated.

Some people with more sensitive skin do not tolerate AHA acids well. It is advisable to perform a tolerance test before regular use of the gel. 

The gel can be used daily or 2-3 times a week, depending on skin tolerance. When applied, slight tingling may be felt on the skin. About 10 minutes after application, the skin will be cleaned with a cleansing disc soaked in water or by rinsing with lukewarm water.

Options and explanations:

  • in the older version of the recipe instead of rose water we used carrot water but this product has not been in our offer for a long time
  • the amount of AHA fruit acids may be increased or decreased depending on skin tolerance; for a more pronounced exfoliating action (chemical peeling), it is possible to work with 10% AHA and the addition of lactic acid so that the pH of the composition is approximately 3.5; for changes in the quantities of ingredients, the amount of rose water shall be adjusted accordingly
  • to obtain a pH of 3.5 while keeping the percentage of 6% fruit acids, about 1 gr of lactic acid will be added; pH should be measured in the meantime mainly because rose water but also fruit acids, being vegetable products, have a pH that can vary depending on the lot
  • 0.5% allantoin (before xanthan) may be included in the composition for the calming effect, especially if the skin is more sensitive
