Rose wax is used in some of the LUSH commercial products. The wax is usually obtained from the Damask rose, although other roses are used too. During the process of making rose absolute, a solid residue is produced that contains both the rose-scented aroma and waxy texture from the rose petals. The resulting wax has a lot of soothing properties for the skin.
