International Flavors & Fragrances Inc. (IFF) has received the Organic Monitor Sustainable Beauty Award for Sustainable Ingredients for a new approach to rose extracts, Rose Water Essential, developed by its naturals ingredients company LMR.
Bernard Toulemonde, general manager of IFF-LMR Naturals, who was at the forefront of this creation said, "It is so gratifying to obtain industry recognition for a product innovation that will also be helpful to consumers. Rose Water Essential uses the rose in the most efficacious way while also adhering to principles of high quality and sustainability.

"Rose Water Essential is a perfect example of a sustainable product that is natural, organically certifiable and eco-efficient."
