Rosehip seed (Rosa canina) oil is a most valuable addition to skin care. It contains a whooping 75% of oleic, linoleic and linolenic fatty acids, which attract oxygen from our red blood cells through capillary walls helping to maintain skin’s elasticity and reduce the appearance of pores.
Rosehip seed oil also contains high amounts of vitamins A, D and E, and is among the richest sources of vitamin C of any plant. Vitamin A is known to promote healthy skin cell rejuvenation, which causes skin to glow and appear fresh and supple. The vitamin C in Rosehip oil reduces the appearance of dark spots, aging spots and hyper-pigmentation.
In addition, Rosehip oil has excellent nourishing properties, making it an excellent choice for dry and sensitive skin. Rosehip oil also packs a powerful punch of moisture for dry or mature skin, which can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
It penetrates deeply into the lower layers of the skin, regenerating cells and increasing collagen production. And unlike other oils, the smooth and light texture of rosehip oil is unlikely to clog your pores.
