Rosehip Oil is a fruit oil that has been extracted from the seeds of the rosehip (Rosa Canina), an amber berry-like fruit that grows wild on rose bushes and is left behind after the rose has flowered and dropped its petals. It stabilises the lipdi barrier of the skin and hydrates dry and sun damaged skin. This oil is perfect for Summer skin that has been exposed to the sun, water and air conditioning.
Rosehip Oil has been used for centuries for its potent skin regeneration properties, nourishing the skin to achieve a radiant glow, naturally. It can be used daily on all skin types and can be used on even the most sensitive skin.
This miracle oil is a multi-faceted oil for youthful glowing skin, and is suitable for all skin types to improve hydration, repair & rejuvenate, even skin tone & smooth fine lines & wrinkles. Rosehip oil is fantastic for treating scars and burns, stretch marks, pigmentation, sun damage, acne and acne scarring and dry and sensitive skin. A few of the key benefits of this super serum are:
Rosehip oil is a natural source of Vitamin E, an anti-inflammatory antioxidant which helps to heal the skin and calm redness or irritation. Vitamin E also helps protect the skin cells against sun damage
Another important compound found in Rosehip Oil is natural Vitamin A, also known as trans-retinoic acid. Scientific research shows that continuous topical application of Rosehip Oil can help to reduce the appearance of scar, wrinkles and sun damage, prevent premature ageing and restore skin elasticity. Trans-retinoic acid also helps to keep the skin soft and plump in appearance and help improve the skin’s water barrier property.
Rosehip oil is a brilliant source of essential fatty acids, Omega 3, 6 and 9 which help to support healthy-looking skin, assist in repairing the signs of skin damage and tissue and nourish skin tissue and maintains healthy skin.
