This cold-pressed, Certified Organic Rosehip Oil 25ml is the ideal natural serum, or moisturiser, to be used as part of your daily skincare routine.

Rosehip Oil is beneficial for all skin types. Extremely light and easily absorbed, it is harmonising and balancing, making Rosehip oil suitable for both dry and oily skins alike.

About Rosehip Oil
Our Rosehip oil is cold pressed from the seeds contained in the red berry-like fruit or hips, of the wild rose bush (Rosa canina). Certified organic by BioGro New Zealand (Ref: 5399).
The wild rose is indigenous to the southern Andes and the native people of Chile have been using the healing properties of rosehips for centuries. Western cultures also discovered that Rosehips are an excellent source of Vitamin C and antioxidants. Since the 1980s numerous clinical studies have demonstrated the action of rosehip oil on the skin’s regenerative process and validated its use in the cosmetic and beauty industry.
Rosehip oil is rich in many vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids, all necessary for the health of our skin. Analysis reveals that rosehip oil is high in vitamins A, C and E – in fact, its high levels of Vitamin A (retinol) make Rosehip oil unique among plant oils. Rosehip seed oil is also high in the essential fatty acids, containing approximately 47% Linoleic acid (omega-6) and 31% Linolenic acid (omega-3) as well as Oleic acid (Omega 9). It also contains powerful antioxidants including Lycopene and Beta-carotene.
Vitamins A, C and E help to delay the effects of skin aging, assist with skin cell regeneration, and promote collagen and elastin. The result is firmer, smoother skin, with a more even tone, and greater elasticity and healing capacity.
Essential Fatty Acids have excellent moisture retaining properties, helping to repair and regenerate damaged skin tissue. This helps to prevent the signs of premature ageing and produces supple moisturised skin.
Directions for use
Use as a serum in your daily skincare routine. Massage into cleansed skin with fingertips until absorbed. Follow with your favourite moisturiser or night cream. Excellent as a night treatment for the face and neck.
Safe for all skin types – from newborn to mature.
