(Source) It has been shown to bind water to the skin without feeling as sticky as Sodium hyaluronate and/ Hyaluronic acid can and is keratynolitic and pH stabilizing, which means, it helps the skin's natural rejuvenation process along, removing dead skin cells from the top layer of the epidermis.

Rosa Hydrosol: (Rosa Damascena floral-water distillate):
Instantly refreshing and relaxing, rose water has been used for millenia around the world to restore comfort to red and irritated skin. Rich in anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals that play a key role in the synthesis of collagen and elastin, these nutrients also helps protect skin from oxidative stress, giving skin a youthful and healthy look. (source)
Rose water is an excellent choice for those suffering from acne, redness or weathered skin. The ultimate balancer, the pH of rose petals is nearly identical to that of human skin, so it is unlikely to cause imbalances or disturb the skin's protective acid mantle and pH levels. (source)
Olivem 300 (Olive PEG-7 Esters): Olivem 300 is a non-ionic surfactant (active surface agent) and water soluble lipid (fat), derived from olive oil, that lends a richness and skin-softening properties to this gentle face mist.
Sodium Lactate: Naturally present in skin's Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF) , this organic humectant and alpha-hydroxy acid, is the sodium salt of lactic acid. It is made from the fermentation of sugar (from corn or beets) to produce lactic acid. The fermentation product, lactic acid, is neutralized to create sodium lactate. (Source)
It's humectant properties- to attract and hold water in the skin, are really high, about 1.5 times more effective than glycerin. Thus, it improves the skin's barrier function, reducing trans-epidermal water loss and ceramide depletion, which can be caused by age, sun damage and environmental agressors. It has been shown to bind water to the skin without feeling as sticky as Sodium hyaluronate and/ Hyaluronic acid can and is keratynolitic and pH stabilizing, which means, it helps the skin's natural rejuvenation process along, removing dead skin cells from the top layer of the epidermis. (source)
Sodium lactate is believed to stimulate our skin's ceramide synthesis. Ceramides are lipids (fats), naturally present in our skin’s barrier. They help skin retain moisture, often referred to as the 'mortar' that holds the 'bricks' or 'building blocks'- the cells of our skin, together. Ceramides are most effective when combined with other skin-replenishing ingredients like fatty acids, cholesterol and glycerin. (source)
Glycerin (vegetable): Vegetable glycerin, also known as glycerol or glycerine, is a clear, viscous alcohol, a liquid humectant, typically made from plant sugars.
Vegetable glycerin is known as a popular skincare treatment because it is a well known humectant that draws moisture into skin (source). Research shows that applying glycerin to your skin may gradually improve its smoothness and suppleness. In fact, using creams containing glycerin, (like KAVANA's PHYTO-5 Face Cream), may increase skin hydration in as few as 10 days. (source), (source2)
Vegetable glycerin may lead to better skin health, by helping sooth skin irritation, protect against infection and promote wound healing. Studies show that applying glycerin-containing products may protect your skin against irritants and microbes, as well as soothe inflamed or wounded skin.(source),
Silk peptides: Hydrolized silk peptides are great for graceful aging because the large amounts of hydroxyl amino-acids they contain are known for their important role in regulating moisture content of the skin and water binding process.
Serine in silk, helps form a protective barrier on the skin and lends it's characteristic silk-like texture to this luxurious, hydrating facial mist.(source 1, source)
Allantoin: Allantoin is widely considered to be a versatile, safe, and effective skin care ingredient with many different benefits that may include smoothing, softening, and healing of skin, promoting the shedding of outer layers of the epidermis, cellular replication and healthy tissue growth.

Most famously derived from comfrey's root mucilage, this emollient, which is also endogenous to the human body, can also be chemically synthesized. (source)
Panthenol/ Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid): has been shown to act like a moisturizer, improving stratum corneum hydration, reducing transepidermal water loss and maintaining skin softness and elasticity. (source)
Rosa damascena essential oil: Legend has it that Cleopatra soaked her ships sails in rose water before sailing, so that the scent of this royal flower would follow her everywhere she went and filled her royal chamber with rose petals before Marc Anthony visited her, ensuring he would associate the scent of the flower with her, every time he smelled one!
Aside from it's lovely scent, rosa damascena essential oil has potent medicinal properties, valuable for both internal and external applications. Topical applications in skincare, have shown excellent wound healing capabilities, thanks to it's extremely powerful anti-bacterial, anti-septic and anti-inflammatory properties. (source) (source2)
Proven effective against bacteria that can resist even the strongest of pharmaceutical antibiotics, including Propionibacterium acnes (the bacteria that causes acne), just a few drops of this concentrated essential oil, can provide powerful protection against topical bacteria and infection, redness and inflammation. (source)
Rosa damascena oil is also loaded with antioxidants and flavonoids, which are essential in fighting free-radicals and UV related damage. Vitamin C rich, Rosa damascena also helps with the production of collagen and elastin, aiding the maintenance of firm skin and graceful aging.
Long prized for it's scent, Rosa Damascena essential oil, derived from the hydro-distillation of rose petals, has been proven to provide relief from symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression upon inhalation.(source) Especially beneficial to the parasympathetic nervous system, it has been shown to be beneficial to post-partum mother's, inducing psychological and physiological feelings of relaxation.(source)
