Rosehip oil has been clinically tested and shown to help minimise the appearance of wrinkles, smooth skin and dramatically improve skins moisture levels
Rosehip seed oil is extracted from the seeds of a native rose plant which grows wild in France.
Rosehip seed oil is truly an amazing product, which has only recently become recognized by the general public as an excellent skincare oil to use as part of your skincare regime.
This surge in popularity is for a good reason, as it is believed to be one of the best oil available for anti-aging and skin rejuvenation.
Rosehip seed oil contains Vitamin A Vitamin A helps to delay the effects of skin aging, assists with cell regeneration, and promotes collagen and elastin levels to increase. This results in firmer, smoother, and more youthful skin with greater elasticity.
Rosehip seed oil also contains a high amount of essential fatty acids and Vitamin E. Vitamin E promotes healthy skin and provides anti-oxidant effects.
In particular Rosehip oil is rich in linoleic and Linolenic acids, which are important skin nutrients.
Rosehip seed oil has traditionally been used for the following skin complaints.
- Stretch marks
- UV damage from overexposure to the sun
- Scars from surgery, burns, and acne
- Wrinkles and premature skin aging
- Burns, including those from radiation and sunburns
- Age spots
