Unlocking the Benefits of Rosehip Oil: Why You Need it in Your Skincare Routine

Here you'll discover the power of rosehip oil and why we've included it in three of our products, including the Daily Nourish antioxidant facial oil, Orange Neroli luxury body oil, and Himalayan Rose bath salts.

This versatile and natural oil is packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and essential fatty acids that help nourish, moisturize, and protect the skin. Whether you're looking to reduce the appearance of scars, dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles, moisturize, or simply achieve a healthy complexion, organic unrefined rosehip oil is an excellent choice for both facial and body care.

Not all rosehip oil is created the same! It’s important to note the rosehip oil we use is extracted from the whole fruit, not just the seed. This yields a very rich, deep, orange-coloured oil, which is a result of the high concentrations of antioxidants, vitamins, and essential fatty acids found in the fruit as compared to just the seed. This makes our rosehip oil even more potent in providing the numerous benefits for the skin.

One of the key benefits of rosehip oil is it’s rich in trans-retinoic acid (naturally-occurring Tretinoin), a type of vitamin A. This powerful form is shown to have a variety of functions including the role as an antioxidant in helping protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals and environmental stressors. Not only does it improve cell turnover, thereby speeding up the exfoliation process and resulting in a brighter, more even skin tone, but it also stimulates the production of new skin cells, which enhances the overall appearance of the skin.

The science behind how rosehip oil works to regenerate skin cells is rooted in its unique combination of nutrients. The rich antioxidant content, including vitamin C and beta-carotene work to neutralize free radicals, protecting the skin from damage caused by environmental stressors such as UV radiation and pollution. In addition, these antioxidants provide powerful anti-inflammatory benefits that decrease redness and irritation, while also promoting collagen production, a vital aspect for preserving skin elasticity and firmness.

Rosehip oil is a powerhouse of essential fatty acids, including linoleic and linolenic acids, which play a crucial role in maintaining the health of the skin's barrier function. These acids help keep skin hydrated and moisturized, which can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They also help repair the skin, which can improve the appearance of scars and dark spots.

In closing, rosehip oil is a powerful ingredient that can offer numerous benefits for the skin. Its high concentration of nutrients make it an excellent choice for nourishing, moisturizing, and protecting the skin. We’re proud to include organic rosehip oil in our line to help you achieve your best skin yet. Remember, not all rosehip oils are created the same, and it's important to choose an oil that is extracted from the whole fruit for the best results.
