Rosehip Oil is one of the best oils you can use for your skin. Before we list out the many benefits of Rosehip Oil, let’s take a look at where is comes from.
What is a Rosehip? In the case of Russell Organics, our Rosehip Oil comes from the Rosa Mosqueta variety of Rose. After the rose has flowered and the petals fall off, the plant will create what is known as a Rosehip which contains seeds. The Rose Hip is harvested and the hip and the seeds are cold-pressed. The runoff is Rosehip Oil. Cold-pressed is best as it contains all of the original nutrients.
Just like any other product, there are a number of quality levels for this Oil. The best Rosehip Oil, such as the one we sell, are sourced directly from the producer rather than coming from a mixed batch of different supplies as is commonly the case with lower grades of Oil. Our Rosehip Oil has a deep orange-reddish coloration. The scent can best be described as herbal with a faint hint of floral. The oil absorbs rapidly without leaving any oily residue.
Rosehip Oil has some very beneficial qualities for skin care use. The oil is full of vitamins, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants. When applied topically, it protects the skin and increases cellular turnover. This is from its Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, and B-carotene.
Now the good stuff. The benefits from using Rosehip Oil are numerous:
- Anti-Aging Properties – the rich complex of antioxidants and the ability of the oil to deeply penetrate strengthens the ability of the skin to produce vibrant and nourished skin. Additionally, Vitamins A and C stimulate collagen production.
- Helps with Age Spots – the antioxidants scavenge free radicals that cause sun damage. Vitamin A and the essential fatty acids can help improve skin tone.
- Helps with Acne Scarring – over time, the continued use of Rosehip Oil can reduce the effects and signs of eczema and reduce scarring by promoting skin regeneration. For those wanting to avoid toxic chemicals, The oil presents an all-natural way to minimize wrinkles and fine lines.Too much sun exposure can decrease collagen in the skin. Vitamin C can reverse this and help promote collagen production.
Usage: Apply the oil to the skin only a few drops at a time. Allow to fully absorb. If used during the day, apply a sun block. For external use only.
