CONSTITUENTS & COMPOSITION
Rose hip oil is rich in many vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids, all necessary for the health of our skin. Analysis reveals that rosehip oil is high in vitamin A, C and E. Its high levels of levels of Vitamin A (retinol) make Rosehip oil unique, among plant oils. Rosehip seed oil is high in the essential fatty acids; it contains approximately 47% linoleic acid (omega-6) and 31% linolenic acid (omega-3) as well as Oleic acid (Omega 9). It also contains powerful antioxidants including Lycopene and Beta-carotene- a source of pro-vitamin A.
Vitamins A, C and E help to delay the effects of skin aging, assists with skin cell regeneration, and promotes collagen and elastin. This results in firmer, smoother, and more even skin with greater elasticity and healing capacity, thereby reducing scar formation.
Essential Fatty Acids have excellent moisture retaining properties to repair and regenerate damaged skin tissue. This helps to prevent the signs of premature ageing and produces supple moist skin, improve skin tone and condition.
Lycopene and Beta-carotene are powerful antioxidants which help protect the skin from daily free-radical damage and sun-damaged. They help to prevent the signs of ageing.
