100% Pure Organic Rosehip Oil
Thanks to its acclaimed skin-healing properties and suitability for most skin types, the benefits of rosehip oil (sometimes known as ‘rosehip seed oil’) have been recognised by many as a natural treatment for the signs of aging, scarring and sun damage on skin.
Originating in Chile, South America, cold pressed rosehip oil is derived from the seeds and fruit of the Rose Canina rose bush. With its rich fatty acids, rosehip oil uses include treating dry, irritated skin as well as burns, scars and stretch marks. Though we always recommend consulting your doctor before using.
Rich in vitamins A, C and F, our Organic Rosehip Oil is full of antioxidants that support collagen production which is known to help reduce wrinkling. It’s also claimed that the high levels of vitamin C present in rosehip oil can promote skin hydration and healing.
With a mild, yet intoxicating aroma, rosehip oil is often used in aromatherapy to help calm and relax the mind. Typically, aromatherapists use it either in the bath, in a diffuser, as part of a massage oil or by applying a few drops to the bodies pulse points.
While rosehip oil is generally considered safe for all types of skin, there are still cases of allergic reaction and we strongly recommend researching the product thoroughly before use. Allergic reactions might include redness, itchy skin, nausea, vomiting and even anaphylaxis.
