Hydrosol, a delicately fragranced water from Natural By-Product

EarthOil by Univar Solutions is proud to represent DownUnder Enterprises and its range of native Australian hydrosols.

Hydrosols are the natural by-product produced during the steam distillation of essential oils. This traditional process is carried out using modern equipment and materials, but the process itself would be recognised by producers of essential oils from centuries ago. The hydrosols, as the name suggests, are the saturated solutions of the plant’s water-soluble components and would otherwise be waste product from the distillation process. This produces a delicately fragranced water that is stable, reproducible, and can be used to achieve high ‘natural content’ concentrations in personal care products as a water replacement, as well as for floral waters, misters, and bath products.
