Rose Rock Beauty

In 2016, co-founder Lindsay Wright was diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer and subsequently had a double mastectomy followed by intravenous chemotherapy and anti-cancer drugs.

The side effects of the treatment caused the skin on her face to became extraordinarily dry and blotchy. While on holiday in Portugal having a break from treatment, she discovered a moisturiser made with rock rose oil. Using it made her skin look more radiant, smooth and healthy-looking.

She decided to spread the word about the wonderful properties of rockrose oil back in the UK. Together with two friends with experience of the cosmetics and aromatherapy business, Raquel and Vanessa, she created some sample balms to share with their friends and family. The response was so positive, they decided to start Rock Rose Beauty making moisturising products with rockrose oil for everyone.

What is

Rock Rose?

It is the heart of all Rock Rose Beauty is oil from the herb, Cistus Ladanifer, or the Rock Rose. This sticky shrub can be found all over the western Mediterranean region but is very common in the southern province of Portugal.

Cistus Ladanifer's bright white flowers are very delicate and cannot be commercially farmed. Harvested by hand using traditional tools, it must be collected very early in the morning to ensure that the biochemical constituents of the leaves and small branches keep their properties.

Renowned for generations for its immune-boosting properties, the oil from Cistus Ladanifer is a pale golden-yellow colour, with a sweet, warm herbaceous scent of fruit and honey. It is packed full of polyphenols and antioxidants, with studies showing levels comparable to those in green tea.
