Roses, or more specifically, rose oil, are at the heart of everything By Terry do. Why? Because although they're one of the gentlest ingredients in skincare, they a pack a punch when it comes to their incredible list of beauty benefits.

Nourishing, conditioning and softening, rose oil is one of the most used oils in skincare, but due to a wave of trended ingredients swooping in, has lost a little of its limelight. We're here to change that. So, we sat down with By Terry to understand what makes rose oil so precious and why you need it in your skincare routine.

Rosa centifolia

Extracted from the cabbage rose, rosa centifolia helps to keep the skin super soft, smooth and nourished. Its incredible conditioning properties also have astringent abilities which can help to keep excess oil at bay.

It also has a beautifully uplifting scent which can help to relieve anxiety and uplift your mood.

Rosa damascena

One of the rarest rose extracts in the world, rosa damascena comes from the Damask Rose, originating from India. It helps to keep the skin moisturised and nourished by reducing water loss from cells.

Rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, rosa damascena helps to keep the complexion plumped-up, healthy and glowing, all without compromising the integirty of your skin's natural balance.

Rosa canina fruit oil

Otherwise known as rosehip oil, rosa canina fruit oil is a great source of vitamins such as A, C, D and E, which help to brighten the skin and keep it protected against environmental aggressors. Due to its rich antioxidant powers, it's also superb at reducing scars and pigmentation on the skin for an even and smooth complexion.

Rosa alba extract

Alba roses are hybrid flowers and as such, possess incredible qualities for the skin as they combine multi-benefits. Well-known for its healing abilities, it's perfect for dehydrated or more mature skin types when the complexion needs a little more nourishment and love.

It's also an excellent humectant, which means it's great at keeping moisture in, and fine lines and wrinkles at bay.
