NEW LEAF Rose & Palmarosa Body Cream.
Our ROSE & PALMAROSA Body Cream is a deliciously feminine cream. Palmarosa is possibly the most feminine of all essential oils. It combines well with rosewater, which adds a gentle rose quality to the cream.
This cream has an apricot kernel oil base which makes it rich in vitamin E, and omegas-9 & -6 (essential fatty acids). As well as nourishing, apricot kernel oil softens and revitalises the skin. Rosewater also has a softening effect and promotes hydration, so is very good for dry skin.
Suitable for all skin types this is possibly our lightest body cream. For an alternative light cream see our Geranium body cream.

We have a whole page on rosewater which goes into more detail about this lovely ingredient and its properties. It has been used since time immemorial to keep skin young, fresh and beautiful. It calms redness, helps balance moisture levels, and softens and tones the skin. See our Rosewater page for more information.
