restore and maintain
a vigorous skin barrier
Our story began in the northern province of Taounate in Morocco, where our founder, Zizzi Shoman, grew up. In this beautiful landscape, known for its rich biodiversity, she spent many years working her family’s agroforestry farm, learning about cultivation and harvesting.
Passionate about restorative skincare, and with an education in beauty, Zizzi began to experiment with the raw, unrefined oils from the harvest.
Inspired by a sea of olives and the fragrant blossoms of lavender, almond and neroli, she created potent oil blends, incorporating them into her Moroccan hammam ritual.
These powerhouse botanicals formed the backbone of her first skincare formulations. With their subtle textures and heavenly scents, the oils delivered an intensely sensual experience whilst clarifying and revitalising her skin.

The Rosa de Rose brand was lovingly born in 2018, a few minutes from the iconic Stonehenge prehistoric landmark.
We have perfected our master formula to create a facial oil that will repair, restore, and visibly rejuvenate the skin. And we have collaborated with growers across the world to ensure they meet our supremely high standards for cultivating and harvesting all our botanicals.
Zizzi quickly recognised that every ingredient has a story from growth to formulation that influences its quality and experiential properties. This inspired the development of her Journey to Skin process, designed to naturally optimise cultivation, harvest, curing and extraction, and thus ensuring a consistently superior ingredient base.
Her research would take her to explore unique growing environments, such as the Rose valley in Kalaat M'gouna beyond the Atlas mountains. Sourcing would focus on the biodiverse landscape before looking at the farming systems within. She understood that biodiversity increased crop resistance to disease, insects and the weather, and would also improve the skin's resistance to environmental stressors. Testing the plant extracts and unrefined oils from these habitats showed better results due to the enriched soil and more nutrient-dense harvest.
Moroccan ingredients remain at the very heart of Rosa de Rose. Overtime, Zizzi has enriched the formulas with a carefully-chosen array of the finest botanicals from around the globe.
Zizzi’s formulation methodology to heal, repair and restore skin was inspired by her mother’s 20 years of herbal medicine practitioner experience. Our process follows the same principle that multiple herbal and superfood extracts can work in synergy for enhanced results.
We have harnessed the most active nutrients from 25 superior grade botanical ingredients, strategically selected to restore a healthy skin barrier, and with anti-inflammatory and emollient properties to soothe and heal breakout-prone skin.
