Overview

How moisturizing is this?

Quite moisturizing. Milani Rosewater Hydrating Face Mist has a moisturizing rating of 3.2 out of 10.

Is it more humectant or occlusive?

Purely humectant. It has a high Humectancy of 6.3 out of 10 and zero Occlusivity (we didn't find any occlusives on the ingredient list).
Tip: Studies suggest that humectants alone do not moisturize the skin. We recommend applying a product with some occlusive ingredients after the use of this one.

What else is good about it?

 Milani Rosewater Hydrating Face Mist is rich in antioxidants. One of the many benefits of antioxidant ingredients is that they are believed to reduce the oxidative stress caused by free radicals, thus preventing accelerated skin aging.

Ingredients explained

Water
Est. %80
Function
Origin
The most used ingredient in skincare. Its concentration defines the product texture: rich creams may have about 50% of water while a light jelly about 90%. Water doesn’t moisturize the skin by itself and is used in skincare as a solvent for other ingredients.
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice
Est. %6
Function
Origin
A gelatinous juice from Aloe vera leaves that acts as a powerful humectant, emollient, and antioxidant. It contains enzymes, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals that soothe irritated skin and have wound-healing and anti-inflammatory properties.
Rosa Centifolia Flower Water
Est. %4
Function
Origin
Rosa centifolia flower water is fragrant water that is leftover after the steam distillation of the rose petals from the Rosa centifolia – the Provence rose or cabbage rose (referring to its rich, multi-petal flower head). Read more on rose oil here: Rosa Damascena Flower oil.
PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil
Est. %3
Function
Origin
A castor oil-derived ingredient often used to incorporate small amounts of oil (such as a fragrance) into a water-based product. PEG-4 HCO is a gold-standard solubilizer and can be used in low amounts due to its ability to solubilize things so well.
Phenoxyethanol
Est. %1
Function
Origin
The most frequently used preservative in skincare. It is a clear, oil-like liquid synthetic substance that protects products from harmful bacteria and yeast, whilst still leaving skin microflora unharmed. It is confirmed by research to be harmless.
