The secret of our serums: Rosehip Oil

In the ever-evolving world of skincare and beauty, few ingredients have stood the test of time like rosehip oil. Extracted from the seeds of the wild rose bush (mainly found in the southern Andes), this golden elixir has been lauded for its incredible benefits for skin health. Whether you're a skincare enthusiast or someone looking for a natural alternative, here's everything you need to know about our serum's star ingredient.

Rich in Essential Nutrients

Rosehip oil is loaded with skin-nourishing vitamins and essential fatty acids. Among its key components:

  • Vitamin C: Known for its brightening properties, this vitamin can help with hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone.

  • Vitamin A (retinol): A natural retinoid, it can help improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of fine lines.

  • Linoleic Acid & Alpha-linolenic Acid: These essential fatty acids impart hydrating properties, helping to keep the skin moisturized.

Natural Source of Antioxidants

Rosehip oil is packed with powerful antioxidants like lycopene and beta-carotene. These compounds can help combat free radical damage, one of the leading causes of premature skin aging.

Promotes Hydration

The essential fatty acids in rosehip oil make it an excellent option for hydration. It gets easily absorbed, allowing its antioxidants to travel deep into the skin's layers.

Supports Collagen Production

Collagen is the protein responsible for skin elasticity. The vitamin C in rosehip oil supports the body's natural collagen production, making the skin appear firmer and more youthful.

May Help With Acne and Scarring

While it might seem counterintuitive to apply oil to acne-prone skin, rosehip oil can be beneficial. It's non-comedogenic, meaning it won't clog pores. The fatty acids and vitamin A can also help improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of scars.

Great for Anti-Aging

Rosehip oil's combination of vitamins A and C makes it a potent ingredient for anti-aging. These vitamins can encourage skin cell turnover, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Suitable for All Skin Types

Whether you have oily, dry, or combination skin, rosehip oil is gentle and versatile enough to suit various skin types. It can provide hydration without making the skin feel greasy.
