Bulgarian yoghurt

Thursday, 22 June 2017 18:05:36 Europe/London

Yoghurt is one of the magical natural elixirs of Bulgaria, together with Rose oil and Rose water. Bulgarian Yoghurt is very specific and can only be made in Bulgaria, due to the specific climatic conditions. It contains the beneficial bacteria Lactobacillus Bulgaricus, which is one of the best probiotics. This bacteria is only typical for the geographic region of the country, thus making Bulgarian Yoghurt unique.

What is it good for?

Bulgarian Yoghurt is famous all over the world for its properties. Not only is it very delicious, but it is also extremely good for human health. Probiotic from Yoghurt is one of the strongest means to stimulate and strengthen the immune system. It balances and regulates the digestive system. But Yoghurt is also widely known for its ability to make our skin beautiful and that's why it is so often used in cosmetics, in combination with Rose oil. Yoghurt in cosmetic products is not in the same form as the one we eat. It goes through many phases of complex processing, before it is suitable to use in moisturisers.

Why is it good for the skin?

The beneficial effect of Yoghurt on the skin is due to its composition - it contains Milk acid, Calcium, Zinc and Vitamins. It also has an antibacterial effect and can be used as cleansing and nourishing treatment for the skin. Yoghurt cures acne and all sorts of skin irritations. It hydrates the skin and prevents it from becoming dry and rough. For this reason Yoghurt can also be used to treat cracked skin on the feet.

Yoghurt has anti-ageing effect

When treated with Yoghurt the skin becomes more elastic, soft and fresh, because it slows down the ageing process and eliminates wrinkles. Milk acid neutralizes the harmful effect of free radicals and removes effectively fine lines. Yoghurt is also very good for the hair. It can be used to treat dandruff or just as a conditioner for softer hair. Hair masks with Yoghurt help in cases of damaged hair with tangled ends.

Yoghurt removes pigment spots

Yoghurt is famous for its ability to remove pigment spots on the skin. Those spots are usually the result of spending too much time, exposed to the sun. They can also appear at a certain age. This pigmentation is not harmful for the health, but causes aesthetic discomfort. The spots destroy beauty of our skin. Cosmetic products, which contain Probiotic from Yoghurt, help in the fight against pigment spots. They also have a mild whitening effect, due to the Zinc in the yoghurt's composition. It clarifies and evens the complexion, helps erase scars of different origin and removes dark circles under the eyes.

 Yoghurt effectively fights acne

Probiotic from Yoghurt has yet another positive effect on the skin - it solves the problem with acne and spots on the skin. Yoghurt destroys different kind of bacteria that cause acne and it eliminates fungi, which attack human body. It has exceptional hydrating properties and is a real medicine for dry and sensitive skin, making it velvety soft, gentle and smooth. Yoghurt nourishes the skin cells, supplies them with oxygen, helps their regeneration and keeps moisture in the skin, thus maintaining it young and healthy.

 Yoghurt helps sunburnt skin

Like Rose water, Yoghurt is a pure elixir when it comes to sunburnt skin. It has an exceptional soothing effect, removes the redness, prevents from appearance of blisters and peeling of the skin. The cells regenerate much faster and skin structure is restored, without any severe damage. Yoghurt also has a cooling effect, relieves the burning sensation and accelerates the recovery process. Cosmetic products with Yoghurt probiotic and UV Filter are very suitable for sun protection, as well as for treating the symptoms and discomfort, caused by burnt skin.

Beneficial effects of the Rose water


Rose water is one of the most precious cosmetic products that exist on the market. What makes it unique is the fact that it is completely natural, perfectly safe and harmless to use for anybody and extremely effective at the same time. Rose water has very strong antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, which means it has a beneficial effect on all skin irritations and inflammations. It is one of the best products, which cure acne with great efficiency and without drying or damaging the skin, like other more aggressive products. Acne is usually caused by the extra sebum, produced in the skin, which becomes then trapped in the pores. Rose water cleans that extra sebum, disinfects and soothes the skin, thus removing all traces of acne and preventing from its re-appearance. It also has the unique property to regulate the balance of oils and moisture in the skin, which makes it suitable for both oily and dry skin. Rose water is extremely good for people with sensitive skin, because being 100% natural, pure and safe, it doesn't cause any allergic reactions, but just the opposite - calms down redness, eliminates spots and evens the complexion. And, of course, it also leaves a divine rose fragrance.


How is Rose water extracted?


Natural Rose water is a by-product from the production of Rose oil. Rose oil is extracted through steam distillation - tons and tons of rose petals from the oil-bearing Damask Rose are steamed with hot water, which evaporates and then condensates. The Rose oil is separated, by floating on the surface and what remains underneath is the Rose water. That is why Rose water is so pure - it is basically an infusion of rose petals with pure boiling water only. Rose oil and Rose water are produced in the very same process and they share many ingredients. Even though Rose oil is extracted, there is always some Rose oil left and present in the Rose water. Any Rose water contains between 0.025 and 0.10% Rose essential oil.


What are the components of the Rose water?


Rose oil has an extremely complex composition, which has not been entirely unriddled yet. For this reason Rose oil cannot be synthesised in any artificial way. More than 300 components are identified in the Rose oil, most of which are natural alcohols and aromatising ingredients. The same ingredients are also present in the Rose water, in smaller percentage. Two of the key components of Rose oil and Rose water are Citronellol and Geraniol. They are not artificially added, but are key and very important natural ingredients. They are responsible for the distinctive fragrance of Rose oil and Rose water. There is no real and natural Rose water without those two substances. It is also very important to clarify that Rose water contains many naturally occurring alcohols, which are also not added to it, but exist as an inseparable part of the Rose oil. These natural alcohols are not harmful for the skin - they are the ones, which give the typical Rose aroma and also they are responsible for the antibacterial effect of the Rose water. They are the ones, to which Rose water owes most of its beneficial properties. Natural Rose water, extracted from real flowers, without alcohol, Citronellol and Geraniol, does not exist. Some Rose waters also contain a very tiny amount of Phenoxyethanol. This is a very safe and harmless preservative, approved for use in natural and organic cosmetics. It doesn't deteriorate the composition of the Rose water in any way. Phenoxyethanol only improves the properties of Rose water with time, because Rose waters, which don't contain any preservative have shorter expiry date and they have to be used within a shorter period of time, otherwise their positive effects gradually fade. The only purpose of the preservative is to prevent from developing of bacteria and fungi in the Rose water, which might be harmful for the skin.
