Rosehip Oil, also known as the “Oil of Youth” has a long list of powerful benefits. This includes its skin brightening properties that help restore the skins natural color and tone while lightening any unwanted dark spots and blemishes. It is loaded with Vitamin A and antioxidants, which promote skin regeneration and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. This oil is also a great deep moisturizer for dry skin and its astringent and nourishing properties make it an effective solution for diminishing scars and stretch marks.
Rosehip Oil is considered a “dry oil” due to its thin consistency which absorbs into the skin quickly and does not leave a greasy residue. This oil is non-comedogenic so does not clog pores. It is also completely safe and beneficial for all skin types.
Rosehip Oil comes from rosehips, which are small, red fruits that remain on a rose bush after the roses have bloomed and lost their petals. This oil has many benefits for the skin so is most commonly used in medicinal and cosmetic applications. You particularly see this oil used as a main ingredient in facial serums and products for mature skin.
Rosehip Oil has a mild earthy/nutty smell. It is amber in color and can be applied as a direct application to the skin or mixed in with other skin care ingredients or products. A little goes a long way.
This oil is known for its ability to replenish the skins moisture by creating a protective barrier on the skin that prevents its dehydration. It also restores suppleness and natural radiance.
