Wild rose (fruit)

Wild rose or cynorrhodon is the fruit of a gently scented and five-petaled wild rose ranging from white to delicately pink in color. Wild rose is highly appreciated in preserves and syrups. It also boasts medicinal properties thanks to its high vitamin content, especially vitamin C (substantially higher than orange) and tannins. The cynorrhodon thus helps boost the immune defense system and attenuate fatigue.

Doux me uses wild rose in several different forms. The fruit extract has astringent and toning action for radiant skin. The oil (known as muscat rose oil) brings softening, moisturizing and regenerating benefits thanks to its wealth of omega 3 and 6 and antioxidants.
