Understanding...Rosehip Oil

Rosehip oil is a natural ingredient extracted from the seeds of wild rose bushes grown in the Southern Andes.

Rosehip oil carries many benefits that the indigenous population have been utilising for hundreds of years.

This miracle oil contains:
  • Vitamin A - which helps to delay the effects of skin aging, assist with cell regeneration, and promote collagen growth 
  • Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids – which produces healthy skin cells and has anti-inflammatory properties 
  • Vitamin E – which it is rich in linoleic and linolenic acids; two important skin nutrients 
  • Retinoic Acid – which reduces the appearance of wrinkles and brightens skin 

When you see a list like this, it will come as no surprise that rosehip oil has been scientifically proven to reduce the appearance of scars and relieve symptoms of eczema and dermatitis.
The indigenous population clearly aren’t the only ones who know of this oil’s amazing benefits. Victoria’s Secret Goddess, Miranda Kerr is a huge fan and has revealed that rosehip oil is the secret to her amazing glow. The Antipodean beauty says, “A key ingredient to look for in skin care products is rosehip oil. It’s rich in vitamin C and full of essential fatty acids, which really help replenish the skin”.
