Rosehip oil is extracted from the seeds of a rose bush (known to natives as the Rosa Mosqueta) that grows wild in the south of Chile, a cool and very rainy Andean region.
Rosehip oil started getting attention after a study was published out of San Marcos University, Lima, Peru in 1988. 180 patients suffering from severe scarring and premature aging used the oil on their skin over a period of two years and the results were astonishing – scars were reduced, aging skin was rejuvenated and tone and color improved.
The oil pressed off the Rosehip seed contains an amazing 77% of fatty acids (linoleic and linolenic). Fatty acids have very important functions in the regeneration of skin cells and repair of damaged tissues. The oil also contains trans-retinoic acid (vitamin A), vitamin C and lycopene.
Rose Hip Oil has been shown to retard the signs of premature aging and provide excellent results in the treatment of burns, scars and unsightly spots on skin.
