Rosehip Oil has rejuvenating properties that are not only going to make your skin feel wonderfully soft and smooth, but also look vibrant and glowing. Roses have long been a symbol of sensual beauty and romance, and now the ‘fruit’ of this flower has attracted attention as an anti-ageing wonder. Once the petals fall off a rose, the ‘fruit’ or pod of seeds remaining is called the Rosehip. It is from this fruit pod that the precious Rosehip oil is extracted.
Rosehip Oil's rejuvenating benefitsGenerally sourced from wild roses, the Rosehip has a fleshy outer layer enclosing up to 150 seeds. The oil extracted from the Rosehip has been found to hold powerful skin-revitalising benefits. Rosehip oil is loaded with nourishing foods for the skin, including:
- Essential fatty acids (Omega 3 and 6), which contribute to Rosehip oil’s skin rejuvenating benefits. They are widely recognised as essential for the maintenance of your skin’s permeability barrier – hence they control excessive water loss, moisturise dry skin, improve skin softness and elasticity and can also help to regenerate skin cells.
- Antioxidants such as betacarotene and lycopene can be found in high amounts in Rosehip oil and protect the skin from the damaging effects of free radicals. This can help combat the signs of ageing and creates smoother, firmer skin.
