We are one of the global companies known for quality & fair trade manufacturer & wholesaler, supplier, exporter & retailer of steam distilled rose water /gulab jal in India.

Rose water is prepared using desi indian gulab known for its valuable aromatic,medicinal and food flavouring properties since ancient times. The desi gulab - rosa centifolia is extensively cultivated in the indo-gangetic plains of uttarakhand and uttar pradesh by farmers as a cash crop. .

We at Aadhunik Ayurveda keep a close association with the rose farming community to source gulab for making the gulab jal/rose water/hydrosol/arka.

Aadhunik Ayurveda in India is the only manufacturer and supplier of edible rose water supporting many retail brands with quality and genuine produce to reach to their consumer base.

Fact - We produce rose water as a main product and not the by product or side product of rose oil. Rose oil manufacturing is capital and labour intensive ( It takes about 3-4 tons of roses to make 1 liter rose oil) with very low oil yield making the rose oil highly expensive, nowhere less than Rs. 25 lacs a litre. Even the quality bulgarian rose oil in Bulgaria in last year sold over Rs. 15 lacs a litre. This makes the product made with rose oil very expensive and not an easy pick by the consumers. And the market world over is flourishing with synthetically prepared rose oil fragrance which a layman considers original simply because its difficult to differentiate. However if you are buying pure rose oil then it will be edible too because rose petals are edible as we eat them fresh and make various recipes using rose petals like gulkand, sharbat, shakes and smoothies etc.

Certificate of Analysis of Rose water

What is a COA & what does a COA contains?

Certificate of analysis is an important document that provides the information about an ingredient or a product in terms of quality of the product, its authenticity and fulfillment of the standard guidelines. A certificate of analysis (COA) must contain

As per FDA, it is important to show the details of original manufacturer (original details & batch number) if the product is repackaged or reprocessed.

ROSE Water – COA

The purpose of analyzing the rose water is simply to figure out the natural compounds it contains including pH, microbial state, presence of heavy metals etc. to ensure its suitability before use. The test helps us explore and make use of the therapeutic efficacy of it derived from the presence of phytochemicals in it.

Rose water is an important product useful for daily routine needs such as skin toner, food flavor, body cooler – pitta pacifier, eye drops, beverages flavor, nutrition etc. It is used extensively in home remedies and naturopath medicines because of its useful nutritional profile.

Desi Indian gulab also known rosa centifolia is best used and preferred to make the rose water simply because of the nutritional qualities as petals contain significant antioxidant effects and organoleptic property (sense organ stimulant). This widely grown gulab is cultivated and used to make rose water only. The flower of desi gulab does not contain oil in them at all. Hence, we make highly nutritious – highly therapeutic rose water.

Rosa centifolia is thought to be a complex hybrid between R. gallica, R. moschata, R. canina, and R. damascene, the known rose breed for producing rose oil.

At Aadhunik Ayurveda, rose water produced is not a byproduct but purposely made product with desi Indian gulab, the best gulab breed to make gulab jal.

Distillation for the Production of Rose Water

Purpose of the test

For the distillation for the rose water/hydrosol, analysis for the figuring out of the chemical characteristics and for its microbial charge was performed by using 300ml of the final rose water. The first 100 ml of distillate were analysed for the presence of its microbial content. A second 100 ml sample was analysed for its physicochemical attributes. Finally, evaluation was made at the rose water in order to find the melting point and any remaining distillate.

Results and Discussion

Result on the analysis for the rose water. In the first sample of 100 ml of rose water, the results of the microbial content analysis are shown in Table 2.1 and declare that there is no concern as for these parameters. It should be emphasized that the analyses were also repeated after a one and a half year period on the same sample produced during the same time of the year with precisely the same results. These results suggest that the probability of growth of microbial charge doesn’t even exist even during storage of the rose water in the sterile glass bottle of 100ml. The physicochemical attributes of rose water are suggested by the results of an analysis of a second 100 ml sample in Table 2.2.

  1. Appearance- The rose water is a liquid form similar to water. That is the reason it is water soluble.
  2. Colour- The rose water is colourless. It is never pink in colour.
  3. Odour- The odour of a rose water is derived from the rose petals. The odour is similar to the aroma of the fresh rose. However the odour changes from season to season with variation in its volatile compounds due to various factors like - temperature, rainfall, soil health etc.
  4. Solubility- It is soluble in water and alcohol but insoluble in fats/oils.
  5. pH- A pH of 7 is neutral, above 7 the pH is alkaline and below 7 the pH is acidic.It is undiluted rose water.
  6. Vitamin C in Rose Water has a concentration between 8-20%.
  7. TotalDissolve Solid(TDS) generally, the TDS between 50-150 is considered as the most suitable and acceptable. Samples with a TDS level of 500 and above, can cause excessive scaling and corrosion in it and are not safe for drinking purposes.
  8. rose-water-TDS-report
  9. Specific Gravity is used to define the weight of a liquid as compared to density at a specific temperature. If the specific gravity for a rose water sample is less than 1, that means the material will flow in the reference substances, and if the water sample is more than 1, that means the material will sink in the reference substances.
  10. Acidity/acidic rose water are acidic in nature as it has a low pH, as opposed to a base, which has higher pH.
  11. Flavonoids are the secondary metabolites which can be very abundant in plants, fruits that are liable for the fragrance and flavour characteristics.

  13. Alkaloids are a class of organic compounds composed of carbon, hydrogen, and usually oxygen that are often derived from plants and are responsible for medicinal properties like antiviral, antifungal, antioxidant etc.
  14. Tannins is a type of chemical found in plants and in certain foods. It has antioxidant properties and may promote good health.
  15. Phenols are closely associated with the nutritional quality of fresh plants. They cause the formation of undesirable colour and flavour and loss of nutrients in plants.
  16. Phenol-testing-in-rose-water
  17. Triterpenoids are a diverse group of natural products in plants that are regarded as compounds that act as defences against pathogenic microbes.

  19. p-coumaric acid is a natural metabolic substance contained in many edible plants. It helps in reducing skin hyperpigmentation.

According to the analysis made in the samples of the distillate rose water of plant Rosa centifolia, it’s far concluded that the rose water contains numerous natural and organic compounds that render it an excellent essence water, competitive to all existing market rose water. All our results indicate that the distillate rose water is of high quality and can be used for different purposes. The results can interpreted to use in other field by specialist technicians.
