Rosehip oil comes from the seeds of a specific variety of rose, Rosa aff. rubiginosa or Rosa moschata. The seed is left behind after a rose has flowered and dropped its petals. The oil is harvested from the seeds of these rose bushes predominately grown in Chile. It contains loads of vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids that make it great for anti-ageing by correcting dark spots and replacing the moisture in dry, itchy skin. If that’s not enough it does all that while reducing scars and fine lines.
How often do we see ‘Rosehip seed oil’ on the ingredients lists of our skincare products and think “Yes! I need this”? Not enough is the answer! Despite comprehensive studies on the effectiveness of Rosehip in skincare many people still don’t know about it or they’re certainly not chasing down products formulated with it that – even though some of them actually work.
“I use my Replenishing range of face care products containing Rosehip oil day and night. Not only can I feel the difference it makes to my skin but I can see it. It really works on a cellular level to rejuvenate the skin. Plus I get peace of mind knowing it’s full of that many antioxidants. When I use it at night and I wake up the next day, my skin is visibly glowing.”
So, if you’re already a fan of rosehip seed oil or you need further convincing, read on!
It’s uses go back for thousands of years
Ancient Egyptians, Mayans and Native Americans used rosehips remedially all because of their healing properties. Plus, the oil can be obtained with relative ease through a cold press method or by slow-cooking it. Though it’s more expensive, cold-pressed is best as it hasn’t been altered by heat and retains more nutrients.
It isn’t greasy, it’s light and absorbs well
Some say that other oils and butters that are commonly used on the face like Jojoba and Shea butter are too heavy for the skin. Rosehip seed oil is light and it absorbs easily. Plus it possesses anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties, which help minimise environmental damage to the skin and soothe redness.
Acne? Eczema? Rosehip is a natural treatment
It is too easy these days to end up with a dry scalp and/or itchiness due to stress and chemicals found in shower products, especially shampoo. However, the essential fatty acids found in rosehip seed oil help to combat these effects. It has what the skin needs for regulating hydration and sensitivities!
It beats Botox (in my opinion!)
With key components well known for their skin rejuvenating properties (like vitamin C and lycopene), Rosehip seed oil presents a safer solution to repair the skin’s surface, restore elasticity and protects against sun and pollution factors that can cause wrinkles.
A rich, aromatic and nourishing balm, it melts into the skin leaving it hydrated and nourished.
A full-bodied and nourishing facial oil that intensely hydrates and returns lost moisture for a healthy glow.
