What Is Rosehip Oil?

Oils are ultra-rich and contain high concentrations of beneficial, antioxidant-rich lipids that work to restore the skin barrier and seal in moisture. In particular, rosehip oil is derived from the seeds of rosehip flowers using a cold extraction process. According to WebMD, rosehip oil is derived from the fruit and seeds of the “wild rose bush,” mostly grown in the Andes Mountains, which run along South America's west. However, they’re also grown in Africa and Europe. You can find many different species of rosehips, but in skin care, most rosehip oil products come from the Rosa canina L. species.

So, why the hype around rosehip oil? It is a known source of retinoic acid (natural precursor to Vitamin A), which helps lessen the appearance of redness in the skin, but that’s just the beginning. 

Defends Against Free Radical Damage

Rosehip oil contains Vitamin C, which is an antioxidant that defends your skin against free radical damage. Free radical damage is when your skin cells are exposed to an array of environmental and lifestyle factors such as sunburn, smoking or pollution. 

Smooths The Look Of Wrinkles

In addition to Vitamin C, rosehip oil contains Vitamins E and A, plus omega fatty acids, which help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These antioxidants and fatty acids improve skin tone and the look of elasticity too for a firmer-looking complexion.

Provides Hydration

Rosehip oil also contains linoleic and linolenic acid, which deeply hydrate the skin and give it a plump and smooth-looking appearance.

Is Rosehip Oil Safe To Use?

Rosehip oil is widely considered safe for topical use. Like applying any new product, apply a small amount as a patch test on a tiny area of your skin before using it on larger areas. This way you can check that you don’t have an adverse reaction.
