Myth: Rosehip oil causes your skin to be more sensitive to the sun i.e. it’s phototoxic
Fact: There are absolutely no studies that indicate this. The confusion may be because rosehip oil contains a natural retinoid (vitamin A) so some would assume that it would have the same characteristics as isolated, synthetic versions such as Retinol. This is false and we must understand that chemicals found within nature do not act the same as synthetic or isolated versions.
Myth: Rosehip oil has a short shelf life – 3 to 6 months.
Fact: The rosehip oil that we just received was produced in October 2013 and has an expiry date of October 2016 so it’s more like 3 years.
