This new batch of Organic Red Rosehip Oil is CO2 Extracted, which works without the stress of high temperatures, to protect the active botanical properties of the plant, ensuring the purest most potent oil is recovered. This extraction method also works without oxygen, meaning the resulting oil lasts longer without oxidising.
PLEASE NOTE - Due to the high beta-carotene content, this creates a red pigment which can stain clothing and colour products red/pink. If you would prefer a neutral colour rosehip which will not stain, please choose our Organic Rosehip Oil (Yellow).
Rosehip oil has been clinically tested and shown to help minimise the appearance of wrinkles, smooth skin and dramatically improve skins moisture levels.
It is the only vegetable oil that contains natural tretinoin, the acid form of vitamin A, which helps to delay the effects of skin ageing, promoting collagen and elastin levels and replenishing and rebuilding skin tissue. This helps to make the skin firmer, smoother and younger looking.
Rosehip is one of the best vegetable oil sources of omega 3 and omega 6 and is believed to be the best oil available for anti-ageing and skin rejuvenation.
Numerous scientific studies have also taken place, which have yielded astounding evidence supporting the use of Rosehip oil.
