Rosehip, also known as rosehip seed oil, is packed with beauty essentials like anti-inflammatory fatty acid, Vitamin A and C. It’s a favourite natural ingredient in skincare thanks to its hydrating and anti-ageing benefits.
Unlike rose oils, which are extracted from rose petals, rosehip oil is pressed from the fruit and seeds of the rose plant. It has been highly valued since ancient times for its incredible healing and moisturising properties.
Rosehip oil has high levels of essential fatty acids especially rich in omega 3 and omega 6, makes this oil an ultra-effective emollient and moisturiser. The high concentration on omega 6 fatty acids can even help blemish prone skin.
Boosts collagen production and skin elasticity: Brimming with essential fatty acids and high concentrations of vitamin A, B, C and K, rosehip oil has exceptional healing properties. Research has shown rosehip oil can significantly improve fine lines and improve overall skin elasticity.
Brightens: Rosehip oil is rich in Vitamin C that is known to help brighten the skin.
Evens out skin tone: The trio of fatty acids and vitamins A and C, help fade scars and help decrease the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
Hydrates: The high levels of essential fatty acids including linoleic acid, are super hydrating. Rosehip oil also helps lock in moisture and is easily absorbed into the skin.
