Rosehip Oil & Its Amazing Skin Benefits

Rosehip Oil is absolutely amazing! Here at O Naturals, we are absolutely obsessed with it. And why shouldn’t we be?

Rosehip Oil is a tried-and-true anti-aging and moisturizing all-star.  Rosehip Oil has been used since ancient times ancient Egyptians, Mayans and Native Americans.  It is loaded with skin-nourishing vitamins and essential fatty acids that your skin needs. It also contains phenols that have been shown to have antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. At O Naturals, we especially appreciate the fact that Rosehip Oil is an outstanding carrier oil for essential oils which are too intense to put on your skin directly.

Rosehip Oil Skin Benefits

Hydrates

Rosehip Oil contains a large amount of essential fatty acids. These fatty acids help to keep cell walls strong so that they don’t lose water.  The many fatty acids in Rosehip Oil also make it an excellent option for hydrating dry, itchy skin. It does this by allowing the skin to easily absorb the oil, allowing its antioxidants to travel deep into the skin’s layers. The end result is soft, supple skin.

Moisturizes

Rosehip Oil is a dry, non-greasy, oil. This makes it a great natural moisturizer for all skin types.  It locks the skin’s natural hydration and any essential oils in so that each layer maintains its moisture.

Treats wrinkles

Rosehip Oil is an anti-aging superstar.  It contains a large amount of anti-inflammatory fatty acids and vitamins A and C.  These are what allow Rosehip Oil to treat signs of aging and pigmentation, hydrate and repair damaged skin.  It also provides a strong protective antioxidant boost.

Evens, brightens, and firms skin tone

The astringent properties in Rosehip Oil help tighten your pores and brighten your skin.  The collagen-boost from Rosehip Oil’s fatty acids help firm the skin as well.

Fades scars and corrects dark patches

Rosehip Oil is rich in vitamin A. Vitamin A is made up of several nutritional compounds, including retinoids. Retinoids are known for their ability to reduce hyperpigmentation and other visible signs of aging with regular use.  The Vitamin C reduces scars by encouraging cell regeneration.  These are the perfect properties for treating hyperpigmentation from sun damage, hormonal changes, and even the side-effects of medication.

Exfoliates

Rosehip Oil is high in vitamins A and C. Vitamin A, or retinol, encourages skin cell turnover. Vitamin C also aids in cell regeneration. These in turn, rid the skin of dead skin cells.
