Rosehip Seed Oil
Known for its healing and regeneration properties, rosehip seed oil is a pressed oil derived from the seeds of rose bushes. It contains trans-retinoic acid, which is a natural precursor to vitamin A (retinol). It is also rich in antioxidants, vitamins A, C, E, and essential acids such as omega-3 and omega-6.
As rosehip seed oil has high levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids, it can help improve the skin barrier. Omegas 3 and 6 can aid in skin renewal, which can then reduce inflammation and repair damaged skin. There is also the presence of vitamin A, which boosts skin quality and resilience by stimulating collagen production.
Rosehip seed oil in skincare can:
- Help heal and regenerate the skin
- Combat free radicals
- Help increase collagen production and skin elasticity
- Calms inflammation
- Hydrates and moisturizes the skin
Rosehip Seed Oil can be applied directly to the skin or combined with other potent oils. It is also added to skincare products such as cleansers, serums, and lotions, which can help moisturize the skin and as well as promote skin regeneration.
