4. Rose Revival 


The rose has long been used in cosmetics to create beautiful scents. Now though, following extensive research from Lancome it is being used as a regenerative active ingredient in skincare. It works wonders on tired and inflamed skin.

Why not have a go at making your own rose based products or indeed use rose water as it is as a beautiful cleanser and toner that will work wonders for your skin.

Rose water does contain preservatives due to the addition of water to the essential oils- would you like to see plastic free rose water on Acala? Email us at to let us know!

More and more brands are developing app based tools to work alongside your skincare, helping you personalise and enhance your routine. Clever companies like La Roche-Posay for example have developed ‘My Skin Track UV’, a necklace device that monitors your exposure to the sun and warns you when it’s at a level that is likely to cause sun damage.

Other clever new tools include Wayskin’s skin- analyser tool that measures skin hydration, ambient UV levels and humidity. It then sends the data to your phone to help you adjust your skin care accordingly. Pretty snazzy hey!
