How To Identify Fake Hydrosols, Distillates Or Floral Waters: An Eyeopening Message For All Formulators

how to identify fake hydrosols floral water

stablecosmeticformulas.com wants to call your attention to a damaging trend in the beauty industry. If you buy skincare ingredients from different suppliers, be careful.

One of the most popular suppliers of cosmetic ingredients in the world(name withheld) sells fake hydrosols to the public.

Hydrosols are aromatic waters obtained during the distillation of essential oil. They retain the property of the essential oils and they smell very deep.

Most suppliers make their hydrosols by adding absolutes and essential oils to distilled water using solubilizers. They also use preservatives like Potassium Benzoate and pH adjusters like Lactic Acid to adjust the pH to match that of the preservative.

If you see any of these on the ingredient list or Certificate of Analysis of your supplier, know you are buying fake hydrosols. Most genuine hydrosols are never preserved as they are very concentrated extracts from essential oils.

Another way to spot a fake hydrosol is to shake it thoroughly, if you see foam on top of it, it is an indication that a solubilizer was used to mix essential oil with water.

You are better off looking for a better supplier of  hydrosols than wasting your money buying distilled water and little essential oil mix.

Be wise friends, keep this in  mind when you are buying your next hydrosols.

Pure Blend Naturals is a reliable supplier of Steam Distilled Hydrosols offline, they are currently making more ingredients available  on their online store.

To test the difference between a genuine and fake hydrosol, buy small amount of each and test them by shaking well and checking the intensity of the aroma.
