Regenerative and nourishing, rose hip seed oil has a number of compounds that directly benefit the skin. Rosehip seed oil is rich in healing linoleic acid and linolenic acid, with a near equal 40% of each. The oil is rich in pro-vitamin A which increases elastin content and promotes collages formation, restoring firmness and elasticity. High levels of Vitamin E help to delay the onset of skin aging, nourishing the cells and shielding against oxidation, while creating a lipid barrier that protects and supports the skin. Tannins give rose hip seed oil astringent qualities.
Clinical trials have shown rosehip seed oil to be active in cell regeneration and a treatment for scar tissue and blemishes. With strong anti-inflammatory properties rose hip seed oil is beneficial for skin ailments such as acne, psoriasis, eczema and rosacea.
Organic unrefined rose hip seed oil imparts a natural scent partly due to its high omega fatty acid content. The oil is a deep golden orange colour which indicates the presence of high levels of carotenoids, natural vitamins, minerals and lycopene. Refined non-organic chemically extracted oil rose hip seed oil is pale colour and offers significantly reduced benefits.
The oil is suitable for light facial massage treatments as it absorbs quickly and completely. On the skin the oil has a silky and luscious feel and imbues a healthy glow after application.
