INCI Name: Rosa rubiginosa (Rosehip) Fruit Oil
Extra Virgin Rosehip Carrier Oil is naturally high in Provitamin A (mostly in the form of beta carotene) and is extremely high in the essential fatty acids that promote collagen and elastin levels for cell regeneration. It is fantastic on dry and irritated, even weathered skin and is suitable for treating burns, scars and stretch marks. It is quickly and well absorbed by the skin, so is not prone to leaving an oily feeling.
The history of Rosehip Oil
The oil from the seeds of this wild rose indigenous to the Andes has been prized for centuries by the aboriginal Chilean people for skin problems. Though slightly different in constituents from wild European roses, it is instead high in Vitamin F.
This rich and potent oil is diluted at 10% in other oils as an enhancing, supporting ingredient for use in fine creams, lotions, balms and oil serums.
To make an excellent night oil for the complexion, mix 3 Tablespoons / 45 ml of Argan Oil with 1 teaspoon / 5 ml of Rosehip Oil. Apply a few drops to the face after cleansing. This is especially helpful for hyper pigmentation such as pregnancy mask, keloid scarring, and in normalizing large pores (it should not be used if acne is still active). If well tolerated, the ratio of Rosehip Oil may be increased.
For scars on the extremities, try using a few drops of the Rosehip Oil diluted with a few drops of other carrier oil.
Try a blend of 1 teaspoon / 5 ml Rosehip Oil on arthritic joints to which has been added 3 drops of Wintergreen Essential Oil and 3 drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil.
If stored in the fridge, it will have a 12-month shelf life.
Cautions: Rosehip Oil may aggravate acne in high concentrations, and for some individuals, it may cause sensitivity to light if it gets into their eyes. If on medication, please consult with your health-care practitioner before using.
