Ingredient Highlight - Rosehip Oil

What is Rosehip Oil?

Rosehip oil is extracted from the fruit and seeds of rose plants, specifically roses from the rosa canina rose bush in Chile. It is prized for its ability to restore and hydrate the skin because of the amazing nourishing qualities found in the oil. Egyptians, Mayans, and Native Americans used this oil for centuries and treasured its skin nourishing properties.

What Makes Rosehip Oil Special?

Rosehip Oil is full of vitamins, fatty acids, and antioxidants that are wonderful for all skin types, but particularly aging skin. 

Fatty Acids:

Rosehip oil is high in oleic, palmitic, linoleic and gamma linolenic acid.

Oleic acid is a deep moisturizer, reaching into the pores of your skin and hydrating it. 

Linoleic Acid is an essential fatty acid...this means the body cannot produce it on it's own and thus, has to receive via through the skin or consumed via food. Linoleic acid is amazing for UV protection, reducing hyper-pigmentation, improving healthy skin function, and fighting acne. 

Gamma Linolenic Acid does everything linoleic acid does plus it reduces inflammation and increases ceramide function in your skin. Ceramides are the molecules that hold moisture in your skin and essentially hold your skin together! 

Vitamins: 

C: Rosehip oil is one of the highest plants with natural Vitamin C. Vitamin C protects against sun damage, helps the collagen construction of your skin, and evens out skin tones. 

Vitamin A & E: High in these powerful anti-oxidants, Rosehip oil is a great choice for aging skin. Antioxidiants allow skin to repair itself and correct visible damage. 

Who should use products with Rosehip Oil?

Those who have dry or aging skin should choose products with rosehip oil. The moisturizing and powerful collagen building qualities will aid in youthful skin. Those with excessive exposure to the sun will also benefit from products with rosehip oil!
