All About Hydrosol 純露問與答 1

Q: What is hydrosol?

A: Most people are familiar with essential oils but not hydrosol. Hydrosol is the by-product of essential oils, a concentrated liquid that separates during the extraction process of essential oils.

Q:純露是什麽?

A:許多人對精油都很熟悉,可是對於純露就顯得陌生多了。事實上,純露是精油的副產品,是在提煉精油的過程中分離出來的一種飽和蒸餾液,除了含有少量的精油成分以外,還含有植物內的全部水溶性物質。

Q: How is hydrosol obtained?

A: Fresh floral buds are contained inside a distiller. Then, as the heat is increased from the bottom of the distiller, steam will draw out essential oil and water-soluble micro elements from the buds. This will then be condensed using a condenser tube. As a result, particles with smaller density will float – this is the essential oil – while particles with bigger density will sink, which is hydrosol.

Q:純露是如何獲得的?

A:把新鮮采摘下來的花朵放入蒸餾器中,底下開火,水蒸氣通過芳香植物帶走它的精油和部分微量水溶性物質,這些物質在冷凝管中慢慢凝結,密度比較小的浮在上面的就是精油,而下面就是純露。

Q: Does hydrosol have a particular colour?

A: Hydrosols are either transparent or light yellow in colour. There are a few floral and herb hydrosols like German Chamomile that is a spectacular blue.

Q:純露本身有顏色嗎?

A:所有純露都是透明或者淡黃色的,唯有極少數植物純露如德國洋甘菊才會呈現出獨一無二的藍色。如果你看到市面上的玫瑰花水呈現粉紅色,薰衣草呈現紫色,那就一定是加入了人工色素的 “偽純露” 。

Q: How do I use hydrosol as a skincare?

A: Hydrosols can be used as a toner, moisturising spray, refreshing spray, makeup spray and most popularly as a water mask. As hydrosol contains small molecules, it absorbs immediately into skin, leaving a delicate and ideal skincare effect.    

Q:純露可以用在哪方面護膚?

A:純露可以取代化妝水使用,或是作為保濕噴霧、定妝噴霧、提振精神噴霧,以及最廣受歡迎的敷水膜。這是因為純露由小分子構成,肌膚滲透力強,能夠穿透入肌膚底層,其護膚物質也更容易被吸收。

Q: Can I use hydrosol alone without using other skincare?

A: No. Because hydrosols do not contain any lipids or oils, it is unable to provide a water-lock function or a barrier film. Therefore, hydrosols cannot be used independently; it must be used alongside a moisturizer, face cream or face oil.

Q:純露可以單獨使用嗎?

A:不能,使用純露後必須搭配乳液、乳霜或護膚油使用,因為純露本身不含油脂,並沒有鎖水能力,無法在肌膚表層構成屏障膜。
