Our amazing Rosehip and jojoba Oils and face roller kits have gone on sale this week. So we wanted to give you more information on why this oil is good.
While Coconut Oil remains an all time fave when it comes to moisturising, I can confidently say Rosehip Oil is a strong contender because it is such an all rounder and the health benefits are incredible.
Rosehip is derived from the rosa canina rose bush, which is grown mostly in Chile.Unlike rose oil, which is extracted from rose petals, rosehip oil is pressed from the fruit and seeds of the rose plant. This amazing oil is loaded with skin-nourishing vitamins and essential fatty acids. It also contains phenols that have been shown to have antiviral, antibacterial, and anti Fungal properties.
Here’s a well sourced list of the benefits and ways to use this kind to skin oil:
Just add a few drops of this Rosehip Oil onto a cotton pad and swipe outwards, to remove your makeup at night. It is better than cleansers as it works as a toners and contains no chemicals , which means it is kinder to your skin and will save your money by being a 2in1.
2. Source of moisture
Dry skin can be uncomfortable, so negate that by using Rosehip Oil as part of your daily and evening routine. Because it contains 80 percent fatty acids (omega 6 and omega 9), just adding a few drops of the oil to your skin once in the morning and once at night will help with a dehydrated, itchy complexion.
3. Regenerates and heals the skin
Because it contains high concentrations of vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, and K, rosehip oil is known for its exceptional regenerative and healing properties.
4. Combats acne
For acne-prone skin, rosehip oil can be helpful because it has anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties
5. As a carrier Oil
Rosehip oil can be applied straight onto the skin or can be used as a carrier oil, such as mixing with your foundation or moisturiser. Although it formulates well combined into many skincare products, rosehip oil can most often be found in its pure form, to be applied directly onto the skin.
Rosehip oil’s healing properties are backed by research based on post-surgery scars. Plus, independent clinical studies show that Trilogy’s Certified Organic Rosehip Oil can improve the appearance of a scars by a whopping 41%.
Rosehip oil can help reduce dullness and leave you with glowing, vibrant skin. That’s because it is high in Vitamins A and C. Vitamin A, or retinol which encourages skin cell turnover. Vitamin C also aids in cell regeneration, boosting overall radiance.
Rosehip Oil may help your skin regain elasticity. Add a few drops to your face in the morning and again just before bed to help with fresh, younger-looking skin.
Collagen is the building block of skin. It’s essential for skin elasticity and firmness. Your body naturally makes less collagen as you age, so keep encouraging with rosehip!
Rosehip oil is rich in vitamins A and C, which are both necessary for the production of collagen.
