Rosehip Oil : Nature’s Skin Regenerator

Rosehip Oil 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 benefits

Generally 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.
Applied daily, Rosehip oil is an effective moisturiser for both face and body, and is compatible with all skin types. It directs moisture to the dry areas of your skin and prevents over-saturating in normal areas. The fine oil is readily absorbed, leaving skin feeling soft and hydrated all day long. It can also replace the natural oils in ageing skin, encouraging a youthful and vibrant appearance.

Rosehip Oil - whatever your skin type

Rosehip oilWhile Rosehip oil is clearly great for revitalising dry and ageing skin, don’t be afraid to try it on a younger, oilier complexion. It can help to balance skin tone and restore a vibrant, healthy glow. We also know that it works! An independent, internationally accredited Sydney research laboratory undertook a clinical study on Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil and found that after eight weeks it improved skin moisture by 44 per cent, decreased the visible appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by 23 per cent and improved skin softness by 21 per cent.
