Java Citronella Hydrosol: An Ally of Choice for Sensitive Skin



Have you ever heard of Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Water? This ingredient, better known as Java citronella hydrosol, is a treasure for sensitive skin. This article dives into the benefits of Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Water, explaining why it’s a must-have in your skincare routine.

In addition to its recognized usefulness as a natural mosquito repellent, Java citronella also has beneficial properties for the skin. Its rich composition of volatile compounds such as geraniol and citronellal gives it soothing and purifying properties, ideal for skin care. The hydrolate of this plant is carefully chosen to enrich formulas, promising a unique skincare experience that respects even the most sensitive skin.

What is Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Water?

Cymbopogon Schoenanthus, or Java citronella, is an aromatic plant whose hydrosol is extracted by steam distillation. This hydrosol contains precious components such as geraniol, citronnellal, citral, geranial, neral and alpha-thujene, giving it exceptional purifying and soothing properties. These compounds are renowned for their beneficial effects on the skin, notably in regulating sebum production and relieving skin inflammation.

This ingredient is carefully selected for its purity and efficacy. Thanks to its natural composition, it fits perfectly into a skincare routine designed for all skin types, including the most sensitive, providing hydration, freshness and purification.

Purifying benefits for the skin

Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Water has many uses in skin care, thanks to its purifying and astringent properties. It is particularly suitable for oily, acne-prone skin, helping to regulate sebum production and tighten pores. By limiting the proliferation of bacteria, it becomes a precious ally in the fight against skin imperfections, offering a natural solution for maintaining healthy skin.

What’s more, its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties make it effective in healing wounds and reducing skin irritation. That’s why at Vernixa, we value the use of Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Water, to provide not only a purifying action, but also comforting care for skin in need of special attention.

A refreshing natural solution

Beyond its cosmetic benefits, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Water is an excellent natural refresher. It provides an immediate sensation of freshness and gentleness, even for the most delicate skin. Its lightly lemony fragrance is a true sensory pleasure, turning your skincare routine into a moment of absolute well-being.

Its cooling effect is particularly appreciated during the hot months, when skin can feel overheated and irritated. Java citronella hydrosol acts as an immediate soother, revitalizing tired skin and restoring a feeling of comfort and well-being. Thanks to its versatility, it is an essential component in every family’s skincare kit, promising an invigorating and soothing experience for all skin types.

I use Hydra Lavant daily to cleanse my four-year-old daughter: a real sensation of care on application, a delicate foam, a product that rinses off easily and leaves a perceptible protective film. Even after drying, the skin is supple and emollient. My daughter no longer feels any tightness, even in this winter season. As for me, I use it to remove my make-up in the shower, it's super gentle on the face and removes make-up residue without aggression. At last, a cleanser in which every ingredient has added value, and which truly respects fragile skin!
