If you’ve ever seen a single celebrity skincare routine you’re most likely familiar with rosehip oil. Everyone from Kate Middleton to Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr swears by its beauty benefits. But what is rosehip oil exactly?
Rosehip oil comes from the rosa canina rose bush, and is found mostly in Chile. It’s been a well-kept secret in that area for its beauty and healing properties, long before the rest of the world.
Our Organic Rosehip Oil contains a lot of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that can do wonders for your skin. Not only is this vegan skincare item beneficial to your complexion, but it's also free of any parabens, sulfates or synthetic fragrances.
Here are some of the other beauty benefits of using this cruelty-free product:
1. It boosts skin immunity
Rosehip oil contains antioxidants and fatty acids that help form a protective barrier on your skin. This helps shield your skin from pollutants, dirt, UV rays, and other harmful skin irritants. Not only that, but this also prevents bacteria from entering your body.
Also, this nutritious cocktail reduces the breakdown of your skin cells and helps strengthen them. This adds to their longevity and protective power.
2. Delays aging
Rosehip oil is full of Vitamin A, which is essential for your body’s production of collagen. Healthy collagen levels can promote firm and elastic skin and help fight skin sagging.
In addition, rosehip oil is an excellent exfoliant. Vitamin A can help develop healthy skin cells, while Vitamin C is shown to boost cell regeneration. The result is younger and vibrant looking skin.
3. Moisturizes skin
Dry skin can be a very persistent problem, especially during the colder months. Rosehip oil's fatty acids help prevent this. Our Organic Rosehip Oil is super light, so it gets absorbed by the skin easily. Once applied, the oil gets to work on your skin cells so that they retain more moisture.
Just a few drops in the morning and right before going to bed will do the trick.
4. Helps brighten scarring
The antioxidants in rosehip oil are crucial for tissue and cell repair. Together with vitamins and fatty acids, these can do wonders in smoothing out blemishes, fine lines, and wrinkles.
A study was conducted on the effect of rosehip oil on surgical patients. After 3 months of use, there was a noticeable improvement in the surgical scars versus those who didn’t apply it. This benefit of Rosehip Oil can be applied to acne scars for wonderful brightening results.
5. Prevents sun damage
The active ingredients in rosehip oil, notably Vitamin A and antioxidants, are shown to help fight UV damage caused by sun exposure. These antioxidants also counteract UV's harmful effects on collagen production by boosting it. Used in conjunction with a good sunscreen, it can help protect you from skin cancers and other UV-related skin conditions.
Rosehip oil can also prevent hyperpigmentation from sun damage. There are dark spots on the skin due to excess melanin formation. The vitamin A in rosehip oil contains retinoids, which help fight this skin condition.
