What is black rose?
Black roses aren’t actually black but rather a very dark red or purple. Their extract is said to have an anti-ageing effect and feel soft and velvety on the skin. The Black Baccara rose that is used by Sisley Paris in their Black Rose products was developed in 2000 by a French rose producer. Sisley’s scientific director explained to Elle in 2014:
The aim was to produce a very dark rose by increasing the coloring pigments, which are known for their good antioxidant properties, in the petals. The extract is rich in carotenoids, which are very good free-radical traps, and fatty acids that bring nutrition, emolliency, and softness to the skin.
