Our Rose Hip Seed Facial Soap is one our best sellers. To start with we use organic rose hip oil derived from the rosa canina rose bush, which is grown mostly in Chile. Unlike rose oil, which is extracted from rose petals, rose hip oil is pressed from the fruit and seeds of the rose plant.
Prized since ancient times for its valuable healing benefits, rose hip oil is loaded with skin-nourishing vitamins and essential fatty acids. It also contains phenols that have been shown to have antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties.
Rose Hip Seed Oil helps your skin in many ways:
Exfoliate and brighten skin - Natural exfoliation with rose hip oil can help reduce dullness and leave you with glowing, vibrant skin. That’s because rose hip oil is high in Vitamin A and C. Vitamin A, or retinol, encourages skin cell turnover. Vitamin C also aids in cell regeneration, boosting overall radiance.
Boost collagen formation - Collagen is the building block of skin. It’s essential for skin elasticity and firmness. Your body naturally makes less collagen as you age.
Reduces inflammation - Rose hip is rich in both polyphenols and anthocyanin, which may help reduce inflammation. It also contains vitamin E, an antioxidant known for its anti-inflammatory effects. With this in mind, rose hip oil may help calm irritation resulting from: rosacea, psoriasis, eczema.
Protect against sun damage - Rose hip oil contains antioxidants like vitamins A, C, and E. These vitamins have been shown to synergistically combat visible sun damage.
Reduce scars and fine lines - Rose hip oil is rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants, which are integral for tissue and cell regeneration in the skin. It’s no wonder that the oil has long been used as a folk remedy for wound healing, as well as the reduction of scars and fine lines.
Boost immunity - Rose hip oil is rich in antioxidants and polyunsaturated fatty acids, like linoleic acid, which are imperative for preventing the breakdown of cell membranes in the skin. Strong, healthy cells act as a barrier to prevent bacteria from invading the skin, which can lead to outbreaks and infections.
Reduce hyperpigmentation -Hyperpigmentation occurs when excess melanin forms dark spots or patches on the skin. Rose hip oil is rich in vitamin A. Vitamin A is made up of several nutritional compounds, including retinoids. Retinoids are known for their ability to reduce hyperpigmentation and other visible signs of aging with regular use.
