Organic Rosehip Seed Oil

Organic Rosehip Seed Oil

Rosehip seed oil is a natural oil derived from the seeds of the Rosa canina (dog rose) plant, native to Chile, Europe, Asia, and Northern Africa. It has been used for centuries for its potential health benefits, particularly in traditional medicine practices in South America. In recent years, rosehip seed oil has gained popularity as a skincare ingredient due to its potential benefits for the skin, including hydration, nourishment, and protection. The oil is rich in antioxidants, including vitamin C and beta-carotene, and essential fatty acids, including linoleic and linolenic acids. These nutrients may help to improve the appearance of aging skin, reduce the appearance of scars and hyperpigmentation, and protect the skin from environmental damage.

The vibrant depth of color in this oil indicates the presence of beneficial carotenoids. These constituents are ideal for improving the appearance of aging, sun-exposed, or weathered skin, helping to create a moisture barrier, reducing irritation, and supporting skin elasticity. Rosehip seed oil has a silky and luscious feel that maintains the texture and softness of the skin. It is ideal as an addition to other carrier oils like Jojoba and/or MCT oil to ease application. 


Rosehip seed oil is made using a cold-pressed green extraction process to preserve nutrient profiles. This involves mechanically pressing the seeds of the rosehips to extract the oil. The oil is then filtered and refined to remove impurities and improve its quality.

The color of Rosehip botanical oil extract can indicate its quality. The high concentration of essential fatty acids and carotenoids can lead to a luscious deep gold to reddish-orange color. No heat or chemicals are used to produce cold-pressed Rosehip seed oil, preserving its natural nutrients and antioxidants.


Rosehip seed oil restores the skin's elasticity and collagen, which diminishes with increased sun or environmental damage. Leading to a rejuvenated and revived look and feel. The antioxidant properties enhance the tone and texture of the skin by moisturizing and soothing irritated skin while also encouraging repair, skin cell renewal, and elasticity. As a result, many anti-aging associations are made about Rosehip seed oil.

Rosehip seed oil is believed to have several potential benefits for the skin, including:

• Hydration: Rosehip seed oil is a good source of essential fatty acids, which can help to keep the skin hydrated and supple.

• Anti-aging: The antioxidants in rosehip seed oil may help to protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals, which can contribute to signs of aging.

• Brightening: Rosehip seed oil is also rich in vitamin C, which is known to help brighten and even out the skin tone.

• Scar reduction: Rosehip seed oil has been shown to potentially reduce the appearance of scars and hyperpigmentation.

• Inflammation reduction: Rosehip seed oil has anti-inflammatory properties that may help to soothe irritated skin and reduce redness.

Rosehip seed oil contains several polyphenols, compounds with potent antioxidant properties, essential fatty acids, and vitamins. Some of the main phytonutrients in rosehip seed oil include Caffeic Acid, Ferulic Acid, Gallic Acid, Linoleic Acid, Linolenic Acid, Lycopene, Oleic Acid, Palmitic Acid, Stearic Acid, and Vitamin C.

Caffeic acid is a polyphenol with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It may help protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals.

Beta-carotene is a type of carotenoid converted into vitamin A in the body and has potential skin benefits, including reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Ferulic acid is a polyphenol with potential skin benefits, including antioxidant activity, protection from UV damage, and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Gallic acid is a polyphenol with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It may help protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals and UV radiation.

Linoleic acid (Omega-6) is an essential fatty acid that facilitates wound healing, promotes anti-inflammatory properties, soothes acne, and promotes the skin's moisture retention ability.

Alpha-Linolenic acid (Omega-3) is an essential fatty acid that reduces inflammation and promotes a soft, supple, and nourished complexion.

Lycopene is a red pigment in some fruits and vegetables with potent antioxidant properties. It may help protect the skin from exposure-related damage from the sun or environment.

Oleic acid (Omega-9) is an essential fatty acid that promotes and maintains the skin's suppleness, radiance, and softness. Additionally, oleic acid acts as an antioxidant and reduces the appearance of aging while reducing irritation and inflammation.

Palmitic acid is an antioxidant that promotes softening, soothing, and skin hydration.
