4 Real Skincare Benefits of Rosehip Oil

Known globally (and historically!) as nature’s best kept skin-saving secret, these days rosehip oil is commonly harvested from the seeds of rose bushes in South America, South Africa, or Europe. The oil is rich in oleic (omega-9), linoleic (omega-6), and linolenic (omega-3) fatty acids and is packed with antioxidants. As a result, using a highly concentrated rosehip oil is proven to show many skincare and health benefits.

 

1. REPAIRING SKIN DAMAGE

Firstly, and one of the most noticeable effects of rosehip, is that the oil helps to repair signs of skin damage, such as pigmentation and scarring. Rosehip oil contains 3 essential fatty acids as well trans-retinoic acid, a type of vitamin A acid. The combination of these acids works to regenerate skin cells, reversing sun damage and keeping skin plump.


INIKA’s Pure Rosehip Oil is certified organic, vegan, and cruelty-free. It is a pure, cold pressed oil, meaning that it is of the best quality and a powerful antioxidant.

2. ANTI-AGEING

Rosehip oil is packed full of naturally occurring antioxidants, including both beta-carotene and lycopene, which prevent the body from forming free radicals and reduce the appearance of fine lines. These two antioxidants both contribute to the orange or red pigment found in many fruits and vegetables, and are also what give Rosehip oil it’s commonly deep orange tone! These powerful antioxidants also encourage cell renewal, making them great for fading age spots.

INIKA’s Certified Organic Enriched Pure Rosehip Oil contains 4 native Australian extracts that work alongside the rosehip to help reduce signs of premature ageing. These extracts include Kakadu plum, the world’s richest natural source of vitamin C, quandong, crown of gold, and riberry, which is extracted to release its important fatty acids.

3. CLEAR ACNE

While the trans-retinoid acid in rosehip oil is often used in treatments for acne, the beta-carotene in the oil fights acne through preventing clogged pores and quickening the cell renewal process. Not to mention, Rosehip oil is thankfully non-comedogenic!

ECO Face’s Certified Organic Rosehip Oil contains only 100% certified organic rosehip oil and prides itself on providing hydration, regeneration and repair, allowing the skin to breathe and heal.

4. BALANCE OILY SKIN

Although not widely advertised (and we have no idea why!), rosehip oil is perfectly pH balanced. This means that in using rosehip oil, your skin will maintain its barrier (acid mantle) preventing the common ‘stripped’ feeling that occurs with many unbalanced skincare products. When your acid mantle is stripped or knocked out of balance, your skin will often overproduce oil to compensate, resulting in all kinds of problems. However, when using rosehip oil, you can be pH worry-free!

Acure have done their research, marketing their very own Rosehip Oil with emphasis on its balanced pH levels, highlighting how the product can protect the skin while delivering all the important fatty acids and vitamins.

Rosehip oil is clearly a skin saviour and is rumoured to be a miracle product, helping more than skin appearance. While some people use the oil to tame wild hair and treat dandruff, others swear by the serum for easing health concerns such as arthritis and joint pain.
