All about Rosehip Oil

Why is Rosehip Oil so amazing?

Rosehip Oil is known for its potent natural actives, powerful antioxidants and essential fatty acids which make it highly effective for scars and stretch marks and other skin concerns including dehydrated and ageing skin.

It may help smooth wrinkles, even out skin tone, reduce appearance of scars, moisturise and soothe dry skin, nourish and hydrate ageing skin, balance oily skin and reduce the appearance of blemishes. Great for giving that glow to dull, tired skin!

Our Rosehip Oil + Antioxidant is a certified organic beauty oil, providing deep moisturising properties and is enriched with Acai Berry Oil to deliver added super antioxidant protection against free radical damage.

This combination forms a perfect balance of concentrated, essential nutrients for healthy skin.

The Antioxidant Effect

One of the greatest Rosehip Oil benefits is that it contains antioxidants. These are needed by the body to fight free radical damage caused by toxins that enter the body through environmental factors such as pollution.

Free radicals are a main cause of premature aging skin, including wrinkles, sagging and even skin cancer. Many natural oils lose their antioxidant qualities during processing, but this doesn’t happen with Rosehip Oil. Studies have shown that even after processing, the antioxidant properties are much higher than many other natural oils.

The benefits Rosehip Oil brings

  • Effective at reducing appearance of scars, stretch marks and blemishes
  • Helps smooth wrinkles and fight premature ageing
  • Deeply stimulates elastin and supports micro-cellular renewal
  • Protects from free radical damage with powerful natural antioxidants
  • Nourishes and hydrates ageing skin
  • Evens out skin tone
  • Moisturises and soothes dry skin
  • Balances oily skin
  • Great for giving that glow to dull, tired skin!

Rosehip Oil’s proven success

Its unique therapeutic benefits were published in 1988 by a team of Peruvian University researchers. In a two year study, rosehip oil was applied to 180 patients with surgical, traumatic and burn scars as well as to a group suffering premature ageing.

The results were remarkable: “Continuous application of Rosehip effectively attenuated scars and wrinkles, halted advancement of premature aging and restored lost natural skin colour and tone”.

Many clinical trials have been performed by skincare manufacturers and all would agree:
Rosehip Oil is a powerful multi-tasker, clinically proven to improve the appearance of fine lines, scars, stretch marks and sun damage.

Vitamin A

Rosehip Oil is widely recognised for the irrefutable effects of the Vitamin A it contains (topical trans-retinoic acid).

Rosehip Oil is so effective as a skincare solution because the Vitamin A comes contained in essential fatty acids. Its healing action is therefore slowly released and capable of regenerating damaged skin cells.
