What is it? Rosehip Oil is pressed from the fruit and seeds of the rose plant
Rosehip Powder is air dried and ground to a fine powder
Tip: Check when buying Rosehip Oil that it is pure. If it is clear in colour it will not be pure. It should look something like the colour in the picture on the right. I personally always buy Organic Oils as I don't think you can beat the quality
What are the benefits of rosehip oil, and rosehip powder?
We love using Rosehip Oil and Rosehip Powder in our skincare and here’s why…..
Rosehip is rich in vitamin A which is necessary to produce collagen. Collagen is the building block of skin. It’s essential for skin elasticity and firmness. Your body makes less collagen as you age.
A study in 2015, found that Rosehip increased skin elasticity
Rosehip also contains vitamin E, an antioxidant known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing properties. It is often used to help sun damaged skin and aged skin
Both Vitamins A and E, in Rosehip have been shown to combat visible sun damage
Rosehip is rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants, used for cell and tissue regeneration. Because it has shown to repair damaged tissue, it is widely used to reduce the appearance of scars, fine lines, and stretch marks.
One study showed participants who treated their post-surgical scars with rosehip oil, twice a day for 12 weeks showed significant improvement in scar colour and inflammation. Other studies can be found online
Rosehip’s anti-inflammatory properties means it can also be used for skin conditions such as rosacea, psoriasis, eczema, and dermatitis
Some people use Rosehip for skin hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation occurs when excess melanin forms dark spots or patches on the skin. As mentioned, Rosehip it rich in Vitamin A, which is made up of several nutritional compounds, including retinoids. Retinoids are known for their ability to reduce hyperpigmentation and other visible signs of aging with regular use
Rosehip contains linoleic and linolenic acids, which help keep our cell walls stay strong, so they don’t lose water. This helps your skin stay hydrated
