WHAT IS CORN FLOWER HYDROLATE?

 

Cornflower hydrolate is a floral water or hydrosol, which is a byproduct of the steam distillation process used to extract essential oils from plants. It comes from the cornflower (Centaurea cyanus) plant and also contains the water-soluble compounds and some of the volatile compounds found in the plant

It takes 750 g of cornflowers to produce one litre of hydrolate. The distillation process gives only hydrolate thus the plant does not produce an essential oil.

The cornflower is a plant found in Europe, North America and also Asia. Its size varies between 11 cm and 1 metre (depending on the variety). Long considered a weed, it grows wildly and naturally in sunny areas and rocky soils.

PROPERTIES OF CORN FLOWER HYDROLATE

  • astringent, decongestant: it tones devitalized or dry skin tissue and tightens pores. At the ophthalmic level, it decongests the eyes and swollen eyelids.
  • Anti-oxidant: cornflower hydrolate has an anti-oxidant effect that helps to fight against cell ageing.
  • Soothing: it soothes eyes that are tired and irritated by pollution, allergies or simply fatigue. It also soothes irritated or sun-damaged skin, for example.
  • Both calming and revitalising, it refreshes, stimulates and brightens the complexion.
