Description: Our organic Rosehip Oil is cold pressed from the seeds of rose fruit known as ‘hips’. The seeds contain approximately 10% oil rich in essential fatty acids including up to 30% omega 3 (alpha-linolenic acid, ALA). These fatty acids are anti-inflammatory and help to carry nutrients deep into the layers of the dermis. The orange colour indicates it's high carotenoid content, which helps protect skin from free radical damage. A unique component of rosehip oil is tretinoin (the animal/synthetic version is known as retinol or retinyl palmitate), an anti-aging, regenerative bioactive that is known to combat acne and fine wrinkles. This is an ideal method of delivering tretinoin because it doesn’t have the side effects of the synthetic versions.
