What would be Bulgaria without pink oil? In this section, we are bringing you a new line of products to which we are asking you in the context of our business – cosmetics with famous Bulgarian rose oil. And to match our passion for quality and proven natural ingredients, we have prepared for you the products of the Bulgarian company Ikarov, which specializes exclusively in the production of natural cosmetics. This includes in particular natural oils obtained naturally by cold pressing. It's not really new, because various natural oils have been used for cosmetic purposes since ancient times. The Greeks, Romans and Egyptians all like to use precious oils to treat their bodies, as there are many testimonies and references in beautiful literature – Waltari The Egyptian Sinuhet often mentions combating precious oils, especially for the magnates and the rarest ones exclusively for pharaohs . Feuchtwanger's main protagonist of the Jewess of Toledo – Raquel does not forget his body regularly with olive oil even during the harsh Middle Ages, so that he has beautiful and shiny skin. The use of this unique natural substance has limited the human progress of the twentieth century, which has put great emphasis on the use of chemical additives in the manufacture of cosmetics, but recently the trend has been reversing and natural oils are once again sought after for their natural benefits.
The advantage of using single-species oils is the fact that it is pure one-fruit extract, pure form, and therefore one has always been very clear about what it is applying to itself, which cannot be said for multi-component cosmetics. While they often use natural oils as one of the ingredients, they also contain a variety of other excipients, chemicals, perfumes and, in the case of an allergic reaction, it is difficult to determine which of the many substances that are contained in the cream or other multi-component cosmetic product. such a reaction. Single-species oils are better tolerated by the human body and, if they do induce irritation or allergy, it is very easy to identify the origin and exclude such substance from use.
In addition to the single-brand cold-pressed oils, Ikarov's products already contain only the ingredients that are absolutely necessary to keep the oils from slipping because they have a relatively short shelf life by nature. Natural-based antioxidants such as lecithin, vitamin C or rosemary extract are used for this purpose.
As already mentioned, the great advantage of using quality single-use oils in skin care is the fact that they are much better tolerated by different skin types than multi-ingredient cosmetics, which is also the case for infants and young children. That is why it has recently been recommended to parents to fight their offspring from neonatal age, eg with almond oil, which is most similar to human skin. It can be applied daily. Apricot kernel oil, as well as macadamia oil, is a bit more greasy and therefore more suitable for dry skin. Coconut is great for treating seborrhea – newborn skin rash. We have included all of these oils in our range, not only because we want to offer you other accompanying products suitable for small children, but also because we stand for their high quality, as evidenced by a number of awards. that Ikarov and its products have received.
Natural products containing rose oil or rose water are also an essential part of the new cosmetic range. Bulgaria is a traditional producer of rose oil obtained by the distillation of rose petals of the rose petal Rosa damascena, grown since Antiquity in central Bulgaria, in the so-called Rose Valley around the city of Kazanlak. Since time immemorial, rose oil has been widely used in both perfume and pharmacy production. To this day, Bulgaria is the world's largest manufacturer of this unique oil, which is also one of the most expensive essential oils in international markets. No wonder, as 2-3 tons of petals are needed to produce one kilogram of pure rose oil! Another ingredient in its production is pure rose water, which we also offer, as well as a range of skin care products with a strong aromatic famous Bulgarian rose oil.
