What ingredient found in the products did Lindsay discover in Portugal?

Rockrose is the brainchild of Hastings entrepreneur Lindsay Wright, skincare and makeup expert Raquel LeBron and aromatherapist Vanessa McNeilly (seen below)

Rock Rose is a white-flowered Mediterranean shrub,  also known as esteva, which has powerful healing and immune-boosting properties. All products meet required industry standards for safety and stability.


It was while Lindsay was dealing with the side effects of cancer treatment that she discovered the huge positive benefits of the rock rose flower (Cistus landifer) on her skin.

She says, “On holiday in Portugal I’d run out of moisturiser and found a pot of what I thought at first was honey but was actually an organic moisturising balm made with local olive oil, beeswax, rose geranium, esteva (rock rose), rosemary and lavender.

“Cancer treatment has a huge physical, mental and emotional effect on your whole body. My skin was looking dull but within a few weeks of using this balm my husband, Peter, commented on how fantastic it was looking.

“Convinced I’d found my face cream for life, I sat down with my aromatherapist friend Vanessa McNeilly to identify the miracle ingredient and see if we could formulate our own version, but with a lovely aroma – the original was a bit medicinal!

“There was only one oil we’d never heard of… rock rose, or esteva (Cistus landifer), as it’s known in Portugal – and this turned out to be the magic ingredient that makes the balms and oils so effective. We had some challenges finding one that we liked, trying oils from India, Spain and Morocco, but eventually tracked down a really top-quality oil to use as the basis of our range.


With oils such as jasmine, rose, geranium and, of course, cistus at their heart, Rock Rose products bring moisturising radiance to all ages and skin types. They are especially beneficial for mature skin dealing with the effects of menopause and ageing – toning skin, improving lymph drainage and diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. Rock rose is also highly beneficial for scars, burns, acne, oily skin, eczema and psoriasis.

Aromatherapist Vanessa says: “Rock rose is an unusual oil – hardly any other brand has it – and it was obviously going to be the main player in our products. I did a huge amount of research working to 1% concentration, then thinking about fragrance base notes, mid notes and high notes. We want our premium products to be as good as they can and insist on using the best and purest oils of the highest quality.”

Rock Rose Nourishing Facial Oil
