Rosehip seed oil is a dry, cold pressed oil from Chile that is chock full of vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids that are known to correct dark spots, hydrate dry skin, and minimize fine lines and scars. It’s no surprise that Victoria Secret model Miranda Kerr divulged that Rosehip seed oil is the secret to her fabulously flawless glowing skin.
Collagen production naturally decreases with age, and with that comes wrinkles and skin problems. Vitamin C aids in cell regeneration and is necessary for collagen synthesis. Rose hips provide the highest content of Vitamin C of any fruit or vegetable.
‘A clinical study published in the journal Clinical and Investigational Dermatologyin 2015 used a topical 5 percent vitamin C solution with rose hip oil (rich in vitamins A, C, E and essential fatty acids) to evaluate the role of vitamin C as a viable anti-aging ingredient. Researchers found that the vitamin C compound proved to be a highly effective skin therapy by stimulating significant collagen production after 60 days of topical use. The study concluded that the vitamin C in rose hip oil is an efficient rejuvenation therapy without side effects’
“Rose hip oil is not only known as effective for anti-aging skin benefits, but for cosmetic improvement of skin scarring, including scars from injury, surgery, blemishes and acne. In 2015, the Journal of Cosmetics, Dermatological Sciences and Applications published results of a study demonstrating that rose hip oil aided the improvement of discoloration, redness and degeneration of cells in post-surgical skin scars. The study group treated with rose hip oil twice a day for 12 weeks experienced a greater reduction in scarring than the control group.”
Before using rose hip oil, do a skin patch test first. Apply the oil to a small area of your skin, cover and leave for 24 hours. If the oil causes irritation, rinse thoroughly and don’t use rose hip oil. If you experience any severe irritation, call your doctor.
