What are the benefits of using Rosehip Oil?

August 28, 2018

Rosehip Oil is extracted from the seeds of rose hips and for centuries it has been known for its skin repairing benefits. It is naturally high in Essential Fatty Acids Omega 3 and 6. When these are absorbed through the skin they promote cellular membrane and tissue regeneration. These polyunsaturated fatty acid are essential for optimal health but are not naturally produced by the body.

Rosehip Oil is also one of the richest sources of Vitamin C among plants. It also contains Vitamin A & E. These are all anti-oxidants that fight free radicals, protect the skin, increase cell turnover and stimulate collagen production.

Why is Rosehip Oil so good for skin?

Rosehip Oil is packed full of anti-oxidants Vitamin A, E and C and essential fatty acids. These help to fight the signs of premature ageing, and even out skin tone by reducing scarring and dark spots. It deeply moisturises and hydrates dry, itchy skin and plumps up tired skin reducing the appearance of fine lines.

Does Rosehip Oil have anti-aging benefits?

The high content of essential fatty acids in Rosehip makes it a perfect skin hydration tool. The oil can easily penetrate the skin thanks to the small molecules of the vitamin A, which can penetrate more deeply into the skin and improve the skin’s moisture levels as well as boost the skin’s natural healing process and cell regeneration. It is a natural source of vitamin E, an anti-inflammatory antioxidant that calms and hydrates dry and sensitive skin. The linoleic acid in Rosehip Oil plays a vital role in the formation of the lipid bi-layers, found between the cells of the stratum corneum, keeping your skin strong and resilient. So it is no wonder that many people swear by using Rosehip Oil as part of their daily skincare routine, to help them preserve a smooth and youthful looking appearance.

Does Rosehip Oil provide any sun protection benefits?

Rosehip Oil is not a sunscreen and cannot protect you from the harmful rays of the sun, but it can help strengthen the skin barrier and help repair some damage caused by the sun. Vitamins C and E, both of which are found in Rosehip Oil, can help reduce the damage caused by free radicals, a result of exposure to sunlight. It is important to apply a sunscreen over your Rosehip Oil to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.
