The rose concrete is a wax-like soft substance with orange-red color and the distinctive rose aroma. The product is made from fresh, non-faded flowers of the rose using the non-polar solvent extraction method. The solvent (typically hexane) is removed completely after the extraction. Basically, the flower concrete is used to obtain flower absolute. To produce 1 kg of rose concrete, about 350 to 400 kg of rose flower is needed. The rose concrete has a very diverse and rich composition - over 166 components, of which 30 hydrocarbons. Contains all the components of the rose oil, with phenyl ethyl alcohol predominating - about 70%. In small quantities, rose concrete is also used in cosmetics and perfumery. It has a softening, anti-inflammatory and rejuvenating action.
