Why Is Rose Hip Oil So Good For Skin?

Rosehip oil is like a multivitamin for your skin!

Naturally rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants, rose hip oil is loaded with nutrients that are essential for skin health.

Rose Hip Oil is a naturally rich source of essential fatty acids.

Rose HipsEssential fatty acids include omega-3, -6 and -9 fatty acids. They are vital for our general health and the health of our skin — but our bodies are unable to produce them. Essential fatty acids counteract inflammation, help regenerate skin cells, and repair damaged skin tissue.

It is the essential fatty acids in rose hip oil that quench dry, sun damaged skin and help to improve the appearance of burns, scars, wrinkles and stretch marks. Kosmea Certified Organic Rose Hip Oil is guaranteed to contain a minimum of 80% essential fatty acids.

Rose Hip Oil is a natural source of vitamin A

Rose hip oil is rich in a natural source of vitamin A, known as trans-retinoic acid. Research shows that topical trans-retinoic acid is effective in helping to prevent premature ageing caused by sun exposure.

When skin is exposed to the sun, it can increase levels of enzymes that lead to the breakdown of collagen and elastin. The trans-retinoic acid in rose hip oil reduces the activity of these skin-damaging enzymes, reducing damage caused by the sun.

Rose Hip Oil is a natural source of antioxidants

Antioxidants are micronutrients that protect tissues in the body. Rosehip oil is rich in a range of antioxidants, including beta-carotene and lycopene, which help to protect and repair skin from premature ageing caused by modern living.

Oil Attracts Skin Oil

Rose hip oil is superfine and will absorb quickly into the skin and not sit on the surface. While it may seem a contradiction, rose hip oil will attract skin oils and help dissolve sebum, grease, and makeup without removing moisture. Rose hip oil will help re-texture and resurface the skin, leaving your skin nourished, healthy, and vibrant.
