Rose de Mai, scientifically known as Rosa centifolia, is an exquisite rose variety primarily cultivated in the Grasse region of southern France, a hub of the world's perfume industry. This rose has been cherished since antiquity, with its name translating to the "hundred-petaled rose," reflecting its lush, full blossoms. Historically, Rose de Mai was esteemed not only for its intoxicating fragrance but also for its medicinal properties in various cultures. Holistically, like other roses, Rose de Mai symbolizes love, purity, and beauty, but it also carries an aura of luxury and exclusivity. The extract from this rose is laden with a rich array of vitamins and antioxidants. Its innate anti-inflammatory properties make it excellent for calming the skin and reducing redness. Additionally, Rose de Mai contains essential fatty acids that help to hydrate and moisturize the skin, making it particularly beneficial for dry or mature skin types. The presence of antioxidants assists in combating free radical damage, thus aiding in the prevention of premature aging. Beyond these properties, its profound aroma has therapeutic benefits, potentially aiding in relaxation and reducing anxiety when inhaled. Owing to these multifaceted advantages, Rose de Mai flower extract is a coveted ingredient in high-end skincare and perfumery, offering both functional benefits and a sensory experience.
