Fragrance Free, Smells Amazing: Our Rosy Outlook
Full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and even amino acids, Rose Oil is proven to help all skin types, even sensitive.By Thea ∙ May 15, 2020
As Droplette formulas are developed for deep delivery within skin (versus traditional topical application), we have the luxury of eliminating superfluous ingredients other brands might include for sensory purposes only. If you’ve ever wondered why cosmetic ingredient lists are so long, it’s usually because formulators feel the need to include chemicals to enhance the user experience. These factors include emolliency, staying power, fragrance, surfactants, and other perceived benefits for customers. But the contents of our capsules bypass skin’s surface, making these additions unnecessary. Plus, aren’t shorter, simpler ingredient listings for everything we consume/use somehow more zen?
Yet, we understand that skincare routines aren’t purely utilitarian. Beauty is meant to be fun; self care is therapeutic because of the pleasing nature of products. Therefore Droplette aims to split the difference between dermatologist-recommended therapy and individually-desired skincare ritual. For many, an indulgent feature of skincare products is scent. Who can deny that part of the success of Glow Recipe's Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask has to be the delicious fragrance? Product scents not only tickle the senses, but also cue the intended action (herbal for cleansing, floral for comforting, methol for stimulating, etc.) This preference, however, isn’t universal. There is a sizable population interested in fragrance free formulas, for both safety and skin compatibility reasons. Droplette would like to have something for customers on both sides of this debate.
We hope that we have found a solution in Rose Oil. This lovely ingredient is not just a scent additive, although its olfactory properties are beautiful. It is also an active and beneficial ingredient for functional purposes. Full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and even amino acids, Rose Oil is proven to help all skin types, even sensitive. For those of us who are prone to breakouts, Rose Oil helps keep skin calm with its antiseptic and astringent properties, while being mild enough to not dry out skin. Its anti-inflammatory aspects help heal past flare ups and other sources of skin redness as well. But it isn’t just for oily-active skin types; it helps combat signs of aging as well. The oil contains antioxidants that help fight free radicals caused by pollution and UV rays, according to Dr. Lily Talakboub, a board certified dermatologist with McLean Dermatology and Skincare Center, as reported by The Zoe Report. As fine lines and wrinkles are linked to free radical damage, Rose Oil is a multi-purpose ingredient, known even to aid patients with dermatitis and psoriasis.
All this is to say that Droplette capsules may have a signature Rose Oil scent, but they are technically ‘fragrance free,’ as we have selected this ingredient purposefully for a multitude of therapeutic reasons. Rose Oil offers something for everyone without contraindications for any particular skin type – and it smells heavenly, letting you enjoy the habit of your skincare routine even as it becomes higher tech.
