Hibiscus is known for it’s ability to cleanse and balance the skin’s delicate pH. It’s rich in alpha hydroxy acids that naturally exfoliate and amino acids that provide a tightening effect to the skin, without stripping natural oils. Vitamin C brightens the complexion while fighting free radicals. Rose water has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce the redness of irritated skin.
