- Our organic, cold-pressed Rosehip Oil is a veritable compendium of healthful nutrients for the skin. Lycopene, vitamins A and E, various antioxidants and essential omega oils 3, 6 and 9 all contribute to a solution with a wealth of health and cosmetic benefits. Rosehip oil moisturises, making it an effective after-sun treatment, promoting healing and minimising the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Importantly, organic rosehip oil also helps to fade a variety of scars, such as those associated with acne, burns, stretch-marks, eczema, psoriasis and surgery. Easy absorption and moisturising effects also make this oil well suited for use on nails and the hair.
Our organic Rosehip Oil contains nutrients that help the skin to maintain its natural health and elasticity, thus resisting the signs of ageing. Powerful antioxidants protect against damage by free radicals and the combination of fatty acids and vitamins promotes the growth of collagen and elastin - an important protein that helps body tissue to retain its shape. The result is firmer, softer, younger-looking skin that looks healthy and well-toned.
Rosehip Oil, in its unrefined, cold-pressed form, also has a proven record of minimising the appearance of scars and stretch-marks. It can therefore, be used to rejuvenate and enhance the skin after surgery or damage by burns, sun damage, acne or conditions such as dermatitis. Our organic rosehip oil can also help to reduce the appearance of rosacea.
On the skin: when treating the face, gently massage in a few drops and leave on the skin overnight. When applying to the body, apply after bathing, applying a few drops to the damp skin. It can be used topically or as a luxurious all-over skin treatment. To reduce the appearance of scars, apply a few drops to the affected area(s) using the fingertips.
Rosehip Oil should not be applied to broken skin or wounds that have not fully healed. Be careful to avoid direct contact with the eyes. Rosehip oil is suitable for mature, sun-damaged, scarred and very dry skin. It can be used by those with oily skin but it should cautiously by those prone to acne.
On the hair: apply a few drops to damp hair after washing. Massage gently into the hair and scalp.
Our cold-pressed Rosehip Oil is produced by organic farmers in Chile. The oil comes from the berry of the wild dog-rose (Rosa canina), which grows exceptionally well in the country's clean air. The berries are gathered by hand and the seeds are then removed for pressing.
A cold-press process ensures that the oil is of the highest, purest quality and that none of its key ingredients are damaged by heat or chemical processes. The result is pure, natural and highly effective.
By adopting a fair trade policy and working with organic farmers who adhere to proven sustainable practices, we ensure that local communities benefit from growing international demand and that the environment remains well protected.
