Rosehip oil is extracted from the hip of the wild rose bush (hence the name) in the Andean mountains. It has been used by Chileans for centuries and the use of hips of wild rose bushes for both aesthetic and health reasons dates back to the Neolithic period. The seeds undergo a lengthy process of being dried and cold-pressed (after extraction) to ensure all irritants are removed.
The popularity of rosehip oil has skyrocketed due to its anti-ageing, regenerative properties. It is a natural source of vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and essential fatty acids, including beta-carotene and vitamin C. The active components even out skin tone, boost cell renewal, and reduce appearance of scars, fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, sunburn and stretch marks. The high levels of vitamin E and omega-9 nurture parched skin, while the omega-6 helps to reduce inflammation. Rosehip oil has a warm and earthy fragrance.
