If you are looking for something to help repair, hydrate, brighten and strengthen your complexion, look no further than nature’s superfood for the skin, rosehip oil. Part of the apple family, wild rosehips grow in South America, South Africa and Europe. The oil is extracted using a cold-pressing method where the rose bush seeds are squashed to release the oil.
This very specific process helps to maintain the nutritional value of the oil, which contains antioxidants, vitamins, omegas and fatty acids, making it an amazingly potent product when it comes to skincare.
Rich in fatty acids and omegas, rosehip oil doesn’t actually contain vitamin C, however rosehip skins are thought to contain a higher content of vitamin C than many fruits.
One thing’s for sure, adding this powerhouse product into your routine will help improve the health, tone and radiance of your skin.
The benefits of rosehip oil include: Anti-ageing and firming:
Rosehip oil contains a form of vitamin A as well as essential fatty acids, helping smooth fine lines and wrinkles, brightening the skin and making it feel firmer.Soothing:
The abundance of fatty acids (
such as linoleic acid)
contained in rosehip oil have been known to soothe irritated skin and redness.Moisturising:
This is all thanks to nourishing fatty acids (omegas 3, 6 and 9). Rosehip oil hydrates but also helps with ceramide formation, which is essentially a substance that keeps the walls of skin cells strong so they can better retain moisture, hydrating the protective outer skin layer and giving your complexion radiance.
But it’s benefits don’t stop there – rosehip oil also known for fading scars and sun spots, targeting hyperpigmentation, reducing the appearance of stretch marks and more. We recommend
