Vitacost Essential Oils - 100% Pure Rose Hip Seed Oil Description

Soften, soothe and rejuvenate dry or tired skin with 100% pure rose hip seed oil.

  • Pure, pressed oil from the seeds of a type of wild rose bush
  • Naturally nutrient-rich, with vitamins & antioxidants
  • Quenches skin with omega-6 fatty acids
  • Light & silky – absorbs quickly
  • No additives or preservatives

 

Tucked deep inside the pretty petals of wild pink roses (Rosa canina) are soft, plump hips, or tiny berry-like fruits, centered at the base of the flower. Sometimes steeped into tea, or used as an ingredient in jams, jellies and syrups, rosehips are brimming with nutrition, especially vitamin C—with a higher content than citrus fruits.

 

Rosehip seeds are sweet for another reason: they’re loaded with skin-loving antioxidants, phytonutrients and omega-6 fatty acids. Cold-pressing them produces a pure, light and silky oil that works wonders on dry, rough and weathered skin.

 

How to enjoy it:

 

Luxuriously smooth and quick to absorb, dab on a few drops of Vitacost® 100% Pure Rose Hip Seed Oil and gently rub into your skin. Use as a daily facial moisturizer or for total-body softening and rejuvenating effects.

Rose Hip Seed Oil can also be used as a scalp soother (massage in, let sit then wash as usual) or added to shampoo or deep conditioning hair treatments for extra-moisturizing benefits.

How Rosehip Oil Benefits Skin (Plus, Top Products to Try!)

Pressed from roses grown most often in Chile, and prized for its healing benefits, rosehip oil is used as both a beauty product and a therapeutic remedy. While the earthy, herbaceous scent is enough to make it valuable for aromatherapy alone, its real strength lies in how it can heal and revitalize your skin.

What is rosehip oil?

Sometimes confused with rose oil (which is extracted from rose petals), rosehip oil comes from the pressed fruit and seeds of the wild rose bush, Rosa rubiginosa. These hips (or buds) have anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antibacterial properties, and are packed with skin-nourishing ingredients such as:
  • Vitamins
  • Antioxidants
  • Essential fatty acids
–> Try Sukin Certified Organic Rosehip Oil A dry, non-greasy oil that’s easily absorbed into the skin, rosehip oil is a great natural moisturizer, as well as an excellent carrier oil for essential oils that are too potent to use alone on the skin.

Rosehip oil benefits for rejuvenating skin 

Because it’s easy to apply and generally safe for all skin types, rosehip oil is proving to be an effective product for improving the overall health of the skin, repairing scarring and stretch marks and reducing the visible signs of aging. Rosehip oil... Hydrates with essential fatty acids (specifically linoleic and linolenic acid), keeping cell-walls strong and improving water retention. Exfoliates with its concentration of vitamin A, which acts as a natural retinol, encouraging cell turnover and making way for fresh new skin cells to emerge. Brightens with its concentration of vitamin C, which aids in cell regeneration to increase radiance, including on dark under-eye circles. Supports collagen production with vitamins A and C, both of which are essential in the creation of this skin-firming protein. Reduces inflammation with its abundance of anthocyanin, polyphenols and vitamin E, keeping skin free of irritation and blemishes. This makes the oil very helpful for those suffering from inflammatory skin conditions like rosacea and eczema. Protects against sun damage with its trifecta of vitamins A, C and E, which work in conjunction to battle visible sun-damage (like hyperpigmentation and photo-aging). Reduces the appearance of scars and fine lines/wrinkles with its high concentration of antioxidants and essential fatty acids which help to repair skin cells and tissues. –> Try Life-Flo Pure Rosehip Seed Oil!

Rosehip oil uses

Whether you want to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, heal scarring or stretch marks, or you’re just looking to level-up your skin-rejuvenating routine, then rosehip oil is for you!

Before you apply rosehip oil

Review these tips and suggestions before you apply pure rosehip oil:
  • Perform a patch test to make sure your skin can tolerate it, and that you don’t have an allergy to it.
  • Rosehip oil is high in vitamin A, so if you’re already using a retinoid product on your skin, consult with your dermatologist about it.
  • When shopping for pure rosehip oil, look for a dark glass bottle as UV rays can diminish its potency.
  • Store your rosehip oil in a cool, dark place to make sure it doesn’t go rancid.

When should you apply rosehip oil?

Rosehip oil can be safely applied morning and evening, right after cleansing. For your face:
  • Morning: On clean, dry skin, gently massage a few drops of rosehip oil onto your face and neck, before you apply your moisturizer. This super-charged moisture-barrier will not only keep skin hydrated but also protect against free-radicals and environmental stressors via antioxidants.
–> For sensitive skin, try Sukin Sensitive Facial Moisturizer
  • Evening: On clean, dry skin, gently massage a few drops of rosehip oil into your face, neck and décolletage before you apply your night cream. This will help lock-in nutrients, nourishing and replenishing your skin throughout the night, so you awaken with a fresh, glowing countenance!
–> Try Sukin Rich Moisture Facial Masque For scars/stretchmarks/dry areas:
  • Gently massage a few drops onto the affected area in the morning, evening and throughout the day, depending on the size. Remember to apply to healed skin, as it’s best to avoid using rosehip oil on open wounds.
–> Try NOW Foods Solutions Rose Hip Seed Oil

How much rosehip oil should you use?

After cleansing, squeeze two to three drops onto your fingers to warm the oil. Gently massage into your face, neck and décolletage until the oil is fully absorbed. The biggest thing to remember here is that a little goes a long way, so if your skin is left feeling oily, then you are likely using too much – so simply adjust the amount!

How long until I notice a difference?

Another key point here is to be patient. It could take up to 2 months to notice a difference with using rosehip oil.

Enjoy healthier, youthful skin with rosehip oil
