Witch Hazel Hydrosol
Witch Hazel Hydrosol is one of the oldest forms of botanical treatments, so effective that it is commercially available in almost every drug store although, don't confuse the hydrosol, which is the distillation, with the commercial product which is an alcohol extraction. It has been sold in the United States for over 150 years.
This true hydrosol is astringent and soothing. It has very soft herbaceous fragrance, making it a perfect choice for your men's skin care lines, especially shaving products. It is also one of the best choices for toning oily and mature skin where it offers tightening and balancing properties.

NOTE :: This hydrosol is not preserved so it is important to protect them from contamination, once opened. Always wipe the lip with alcohol after pouring. Never touch the lip of the bottle that you're pouring into with the lip of the main bottle. Never add back to the main bottle. Once poured out it should not be re-combined. You may add a water soluble preservative, such as Gluconolactone and Sodium Benzoate, to extend the shelf life.
