What is Rosehip Oil?
Rosehip Oil is the oil extracted from the hip of the rose.
The hip is the fruit which remains after a rose has bloomed and the petals have dropped. Kosmea’s unique extraction process uses a supercritical (CO2) extraction method without heat or chemicals. This maintains the high level of Vitamin A and the integrity of the oil’s powerful healing properties.
What does Rosehip Oil do for the skin?
Rosehip Oil is a fine oil easily absorbed and therefore able to penetrate the deeper layers of your skin without leaving behind an oily residue. The two vital components of Rosehip Oil that help your skin are the high levels of vitamin A and essential fatty acids.
Vitamin A stimulates collagen production, boosting the skin’s resilience and quality. Research has shown that our skin readily absorbs Vitamin A when applied topically.
These two ingredients working together help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and scarring (old and new scars), alleviate the effects of eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and rosacea, and soothe dry and sensitive skin.
