Rosehip Oil, Bulgarian, 1oz, Live Live & Organic
Rosehip Oil is considered a “dry” oil, meaning that it soaks into the skin easily and does not leave a greasy residue. The oil contains provitamin A (mostly beta-Carotene). It has been wrongly said to contain retinol (vitamin A) which is a vitamin solely made by animals from provitamin A. It does however contain levels (up to .357 ml/L) of tretinoin or all-trans retinoic acid, a vitamin A acid that retinol converts to. Similarly, while the fruit is rich in vitamin C, the oil does not contain any, as it is a water-soluble vitamin. Rose hip seed oil is high in the essential fatty acids: linoleic acid or omega-6, and linolenic acid or omega-3.
Sea Buckthorn Oil, 1oz, Live Live & Organic
A useful, highly prized oil typically used to treat damaged skin. It can be applied directly to the skin or included within skin care preparations that are designed to relieve occasional symptoms of problematic skin conditions. This oil contains essential fatty acids, carotenes, tocopherols, and phytosterols. It is a concentrated oil, and we suggest to use sparingly. Our sea buckthorn oil was processed by the cold press method of the entire berry with seeds. This particular oil will solidify if exposed to low temperatures, and it is best left at room temperature. Some mild staining of skin may occur; this is temporary and washes off easily. Use caution, spread evenly and dilute.
