Rosehip oil, rose hips oil, rosehip seed oil, hip rose oil, hip oil – what?! It’s one of the hottest trends in skincare and the beauty must-have on everyone’s lips, with supermodels and celebrities crediting it for their glowing skin, but what exactly is rosehip oil and what makes it such a beauty staple? Read on for ultimate low-down of this skincare saviour!
What is Rosehip Oil?
Rosehip oil – otherwise known as rosehip seed oil – is a pure plant oil commonly used in skincare. Contrary to popular belief, rosehip oil isn’t actually derived from roses but rosehips from wild-growing rosehip bushes. The beautiful golden oil is then extracted from the rosehip seeds.
Why Is Rosehip Oil Good For Skin?
The benefits of rosehip oil for the skin are many; it’s a true multi-tasking beauty essential, rich in skin-loving nutrients! Pure, certified organic, cold-pressed rosehip oil – like our Certified Organic Rosehip Oil - is chock-full of antioxidants, essential fatty acids (omegas 3 & 6), fatty acids (omega 9) and beta-carotene, making it not only intensely nourishing but one of the best pure plant oils for helping repair and rejuvenate skin.
Does Rosehip Oil Boost Skin Radiance?
Rosehip oil has nourishing properties which help to brighten skin naturally. While rosehip oil can be used all-over, it can also be specifically formulated for the face. Trilogy Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+ contains unique antioxidant complex Rosapene™, which helps to boost skin condition to achieve greater radiance. Don’t just take our word for it - independent studies show Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+ improves brightening by up to 75%*!
Will Rosehip Oil Cause Acne?
It might seem counterproductive placing oil on top of skin, but rosehip oil is a pure plant oil, which – unlike mineral or petroleum oils - has a fine molecular structure and is similar in design to our own natural skin oil (a.k.a. sebum). This means it is quite a light, dry oil that is ready absorbed by the skin while helping promote a normal, healthy cell function to re-balance oily skin.
Does Rosehip Oil Treat Dry Skin?
The great thing about rosehip oil is that it's suitable for all skin types! It’s deeply nourishing and moisturising (hello, dry skin!), but also superfine with balancing properties, making it ideal for those with normal or oily skin. And because pure, cold-pressed and organic rosehip seed oil has no added preservatives, chemicals or fragrances, it’s also ideal for those sensitive skin types.
Can Rosehip Oil Improve The Appearance Of Fine Lines And Wrinkles?
The high essential fatty acid content in both our Certified Organic Rosehip Oil and Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+ make these beauty oils highly effective at improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while also offering the added benefits of treating dry, dehydrated skin and uneven skin tone.
