Think of rosehip oil as a multivitamin for your skin. It’s a pressed seed oil extracted from the fruit of the rose bush and related species, usually (but not always) from the southern Andes which is why it’s quite expensive. It’s had a quick rise to fame lately, becoming recognised as a ‘super-rejuvenation’ oil. It’s rich in essential fatty acids, plus all the usual vitamins & antioxidants that you’ve come to expect of a premium skin oil. The key to rosehip oil is the fatty acids it contains, omega-3, 6 & 9, which our skin and body love but can’t produce itself. These fatty acids are great for helping our skin cells regenerate and repair damaged tissue. Plus, it has a range of different antioxidants which are effective in repairing damage from the sun or just from living.
