Antiseptic and uplifting
Rosewood oil is obtained through distillation of chipped rosewood. A colourless essential oil, it is prized in perfumery for its spicy, citrusy woody aroma and in skincare for its antiseptic properties.
Finding a way to sustainably source rosewood oil is an ongoing mission for Lush. Alongside our partners in Peru, the purchase of 60sq km of Amazonian rainforest was negotiated. A local team then built a distillery aiming to produce rosewood oil without negatively impacting the rich forest ecosystem. Hopefully, the results of their labour will be available to use in future products!
