|Rosehip Oil - A Natural Skin Regenerator
The main properties attributed to this natural cosmetic are that it
helps to reduce and retard wrinkles and improves the appearance of scars.
The oil is obtained from the seeds in the red fruit of a Rose bush (Rosa
Rubiginosa) that grows wild in the southern Andes, an unspoilt mountain
region which is cool and extremely rainy.
As the Rose bush grows wild, no chemicals are involved at the growing
stage. Indeed it is found at such high altitudes that it does not come
under attack from insects. There is no mechanisation in the harvest
process either. The local population earns extra income by simply taking a
bag and collecting the Rose Hips on foot. The oil is then cold pressed at
the point of source and exported.
Rose Hip Oil has been found to be highly beneficial to facial skin
because of its high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids (Linoleic Acid
47% and Linolenic Acid 31%.). Fatty acids have a very important function
in regeneration of skin cells and damaged tissues.
Rose Hip Oil is applied by massaging into the affected skin with the
fingertips until completely absorbed. It is said to retard signs of
premature aging like wrinkles, eyelines and crows feet around the eyes and
mouth and to provide excellent results in improving the appearance of
scars, including skin that has been burned or exposed to radiotherapy.
Rose Hip Oil is supplied in its pure form: it contains no added
substances and involves no testing on animals. Even though this product is
not certified we have every confidence that it is totally organically
grown and processed.
