Rosehip Oil

Rosehip Oil

Chances are you’ve probably heard of Rosehip Oil, but do you know exactly why it’s regarded as one of the best oils for dry, maturing and sensitive skin? If not—we’ve got you covered! In this deep dive on Rosehip Oil, we’ll provide you with the many need-to-know benefits this oil provides your skin.


What Is It?

Rosehip is the fruit of the rose plant found in the center of the bud where the petals are attached. After successful pollination, which usually happens in Spring or early Summer, the petals fall off, exposing the red bulb. Once harvested, the rosehip can be processed in many ways such as grinding the seeds, making tea from the bulbs or extracting oil as we will go over in this post. Rosehip oil is produced from the extracted seeds of the bulb—typically from wild rose bushes in the Andes. But they can also be extracted from Rosa Canina, which are found in South Africa and Europe.

The rosehip is the uterus of the plant. Once pollinated, the rosehip swells, barring the seeds to begin propagation. 

Best Ways To Use It?

Rosehip oil is beneficial when used on both your skin and hair—who knew?! One of the many great things about rosehip oil is that it can be used anywhere between 1-100% in formulas. Often referred to as a “dry oil”, it easily absorbs into the skin quickly without leaving a greasy residue. Use it on its own, or in combination with other oils, as we do in our Hydrating Body Oil. Apply a few drops at night on clean skin following your toner and you’ll be on your on your way to glowing, even more, beautiful skin.


What’s The Difference Between Rosehip CO2 + Rosehip Oil?

The main difference between CO2 rosehip and cold-pressed rosehip oil is the extraction method. CO2 extracts are produced by using CO2 gas under high pressure resulting in a product that has been found to retain more of the lipophilic components of plants. In other words, more of the plant’s nutrients are preserved during the extraction process. Another fun fact—CO2 extracts have a longer shelf life than your typical oil and can help to preserve the other less stable oils as well! In our Regenerative Facial Serum, we’ve opted to use Rosehip CO2 (instead of your typical cold-pressed rosehip oil) as the main ingredient. Which is supported by 13 additional oils that are deeply penetrating, youth preserving and contribute to cell regeneration. A potential downside, however, is that CO2 extracts can be quite a bit more pricey than cold-pressed oils so using them on delicate facial skin gets you the most bang for your buck.

What Are The Benefits?

We weren’t kidding when we said it had loads of benefits. Rosehip oil is packed with vitamin A and E, as well as all three essential fatty acids (omega-3, omega-6, + omega-9)—all of which are great for treating signs of aging. Rosehip oil is also really great for dealing with stubborn breakouts and the hyperpigmentation that can be left behind since it can help to slightly lighten the skin. Lastly, Rosehip oil is anti-inflammatory thanks to it being rich in carotenoids which help decrease inflammation, promote new cell growth and protects skin from damage.
