Ingredients 101: Rosehip Seed Oil

Natural or Synthetic: Natural

Origin: Rosehip seed oil is extracted from the seeds of a wild rose bush

Location: Southern Andes

Beauty Benefits: Rosehip seed oil has a long history of benefiting the body. It was a remedy used by the ancient Egyptians, Mayans and Native Americans because of its powerful healing properties but it carries many fabulous beauty benefits too. Rosehip seed oil is packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6 which work together to moisturise, hydrate and repair the skin. The vitamin A in rosehip seed oil helps to promote healthy skin cell rejuvenation, while the vitamin C reduces the appearance of dark spots, ageing spots and hyper-pigmentation. Rose Byrne and Miranda Kerr swear by rosehip seed oil, crediting it for their gorgeous radiant complexions.

Rosehip seed oil has anti-inflammatory properties and, as it is also non-greasy and lightweight, it is great for those with sensitive skin.

Warnings: Rosehip seed oil is safe to use topically
