Rosehip Oil, Bulgarian, 1oz, Live Live & Organic
Rosehip Oil is highly absorbable and hydrating.
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.
Rose hip seed oil is high in the essential fatty acids: linoleic acid or omega-6, and linolenic acid or omega-3.
Rosehip oil is a natural oil derived from the seeds of the rosehip fruit, which comes from the wild rose plant. It has gained popularity in skincare due to its numerous benefits for the skin.
Here are some of the benefits of rosehip oil:
Moisturization: Rosehip oil is rich in essential fatty acids, such as linoleic acid and oleic acid, which help to moisturize and hydrate the skin. It forms a protective barrier on the skin, preventing moisture loss and keeping the skin supple.
Anti-aging properties: The oil is abundant in antioxidants, including vitamin C, vitamin E, and carotenoids. These antioxidants help to combat free radicals, which are responsible for premature aging and damage to the skin cells. Regular use of rosehip oil can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots, promoting a more youthful complexion.
Brightening and evening out skin tone: The vitamin C content in rosehip oil can help brighten the skin and fade dark spots and hyperpigmentation. It aids in the production of collagen, which improves skin texture and evens out skin tone, resulting in a more radiant complexion.
Scar and stretch mark reduction: Due to its regenerative properties, rosehip oil is often used to minimize the appearance of scars, including acne scars and surgical scars. It can also help reduce the visibility of stretch marks by promoting skin regeneration and elasticity.
Anti-inflammatory effects: Rosehip oil contains compounds with anti-inflammatory properties, such as polyphenols and anthocyanins. These properties make it beneficial for soothing irritated skin conditions like eczema, dermatitis, and rosacea. It can help reduce redness, inflammation, and itchiness associated with these conditions.
Protection against environmental damage: The antioxidants in rosehip oil provide protection against environmental stressors, such as pollution and UV radiation. They help to neutralize free radicals and reduce the damage caused by oxidative stress, thus supporting the skin's overall health and resilience.
