Rosehip oil is highly nourishing and is rich in fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants. It is thought to be effective at preventing premature ageing by protecting skin cells from damage, which may reduce wrinkles as well as stretch marks and scars.
The oil’s active ingredients encourage cell growth, collagen synthesis, evens skin tone and balances pigmentation. It is a dry oil, meaning it is absorbed easily and leaves less oily residue.
Rosehip oil is cold pressed from the seed of the rose bush. The unrefined version can be either light yellow or a darker colour depending on the amount of fruit left in the oil and has a distinctive fatty smell (it does not smell rosy). The smell dissipates quickly when applied to the skin, and storing it in the refrigerator will help reduce the smell as well as extend the life of the oil.
