Cucumbers are listed by the INCI (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) as “skin conditioning” and there are a few reasons why they would. First, cucumber is thought to contain the enzyme erepsin, which is found in the human digestive system. That may seem a bad place to start looking for healthy skin products, but erepsin has skin-softening properties. Many people use cucumber hydrosols either on their own or mixed in with other products to add a softening element. It keeps their skin super soft and conditions the skin so it looks and feels great.
HELP OILY SKIN
For all its soothing, moisturizing qualities, cucumber is also frequently used on normal to oily skin to cut down on the unwanted moisture that the skin produces. This is because cucumber can cut through the oil to keep your skin moisturized without encouraging more oil production. That way, your skin could be healthy and moisturized and produce less oil overall. If you have oily skin, you could try using cucumber hydrosols on your skin to see if it can help you.
HELP WIND AND SUN BURN
We all want relief from wind and sun burn. The tightening and burning sensation can make life uncomfortable, especially the little things. Putting on and taking off clothes and even falling asleep can be hard when you’re burned. That’s why many people have started to use cucumber hydrosols on their skin after a wind or sunburn. The soothing and moisturizing elements can help bring relief to the burn, reducing the feelings of tightness and pain that often accompany burns. So the next time you get a sunburn, try putting on some cucumber hydrosol. It will smell great and could provide the relief you need.
Cucumber hydrosols are a relatively new product in the world of hydrosols and herbal waters, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t useful. With their sweet yet slightly bitter undertones and refreshing moisture levels, you can use them for anything from face creams to massage oils.

Benefits of Hydrosols for Hair
» Hydrates hair. Hydrosols are natural humectants. They gather moisture from the surrounding and seal it into the hair strands. This leaves hair moisturized and healthy.
» Keeps hair conditioned. When using hydrosols on hair, they naturally condition it which makes hair silky and soft for easy detangling.
» Soothes the scalp. For itchy scalps and dandruff, hydrosols soothe the scalp, kill off bacteria and relieve itchiness.
» Promotes hair growth. Some hydrosols are stimulants which stimulate blood flow to the scalp. This nourishes and invigorates the hair follicles, which promotes hair growth.
Just like all our products, this hydrosol is all natural, organic, made with distilled water and contains no additives....no witch hazel or glycerin. You may add your own if you wish. For best results and lengthen the freshness of the hydrosol storing in the refrigerator is recommended.
