Cultivated since the Ancient times, in Rome and in the Middle-East, that ancient rose, that flowers twice a year, has an exceptional fragrance, that made it one of the most important component in the perfume industry: it is the mother of Bulgarian roses, the roses dedicated to make perfumes. As a universal symbol of beauty, it was associated to the goddess of beauty Venus a long time. Then the legend of Adonis associated it to renewal, like gothic rose windows and its etymology («rosa» from dew and rain in Latin) remind us. Since the Ancient times, it is considered as a medicinal plant, thanks to the well known properties of its oil and its petals: they are told to be tonic, antiseptic and astringent.

StandStill Rose from Damas acts mainly on the dermis and its components. First it acts on the lifetime of cells, of fibroblasts, by limiting their ageing, meaning by limiting the natural phenomenon of senescence. Second it reinforces the activity of cells by boosting the synthesis of fibres, collagens and proteoglycans, which support skin and constitute extra-cell matrix. Third, it helps to decrease the quantity of an enzyme responsible for the degradation of those fibres.
Thanks to that action of extending cell life therefore cell activity, dermis can keep creating high quality components.
