WHAT ARE PRESERVED ROSES?
Preserved roses, aka eternal, everlasting, infinity are 100% natural flowers that have undergone industrial high-tech processing, where water and other liquids in the flower structure have been replaced with a special polymer composite and dye. A premium quality preserved rose does not differ, visually or tactile, from a fresh cut one. Its production involves specific chemical technology and strictly defined varieties of top quality raw roses. The best roses in the world come from Ecuador and only Ecuadorian preserved roses meet the requirements of luxury and elite consumer segments. Open-source information regarding the preservation process is badly distorted and incomplete since the real technology is highly protected as intellectual property. Chinese samples of "luxury" preserved roses are far from being such.
HOW TO CARE FOR PRESERVED FLOWERS?
Preserved flowers do not require special care. It is very important to remember that they should never be watered, irrigated, or kept in a high humidity environment. Also, they should avoid direct sunlight and high temperature. You can pick and hold buds, you can move them between compositions, and you need to do this with clean and dry hands or in jewelry gloves with the same care that you take with a fresh cut flower. To remove dust, use the hairdryer cold air stream or a large cosmetic powder brush with soft natural bristles.
HOW LONG DO PRESERVED ROSES LAST?
Premium quality preserved roses retain their appearance and tactile properties for up to 8 years. How really long, depends on compliance with care instructions and usage conditions. Obviously, the flowers in the gift rose box kept at the home interior will last longer than the same ones moved between compositions by event managers or corporate decorators. Since the production technology is constantly being improved, at present we provide a guarantee for up to 3 years, subject to use and care recommendations.
WHERE ARE PRESERVED FLOWERS USED?
Preserved roses, flowers, and plants are traditionally used by luxury and celebrity florists to create gift rose boxes and decorative compositions. The most popular B2C products here are rose boxes, "Beauty and the Beast" flasks, and compositions combined with preserved fillers and greenery. Due to a long lifespan and lack of phytosanitary requirements, eternal flowers are increasingly used by event managers, corporate decorators, advertising agencies, and hoteliers. Initially, the eternal roses press wall appeared at the world premiere of "Beauty and the Beast" in 2017, and just two years later decorations made of 40,000 red Ecuadorian preserved roses were presented at the Oscars 2019. The phytosanitary purity and hypoallergenicity of the product have attracted medical, educational, and other institutions, where traditional floral decoration is limited by epidemiological regulators.
ARE PRESERVED FLOWERS SAFE?
Preserved roses, flowers, and plants are an environmentally friendly product. The technology of replacing liquids with a polymer composite does not involve substances or dyes potentially dangerous to humans, animals, or the environment throughout the lifetime of ready flowers. Only food dyes from the most famous manufacturers from the USA and Switzerland are used. The product has no phytosanitary restrictions and is 100% safe for people who are allergic to fresh flowers. The use of preserved flowers in favor of fresh cut is a real contribution to environmental protection.
