Rosehip Seed Oil

Rosehip Seed Oil By Christina Moss NaturalsRosehip seed oil is an organic cold-pressed formula extracted from Rosa Moschata. This special ingredient contains natural skin-nourishing vitamins and fatty acids that help your skin become smoother, more hydrated and radiant.

The oil comprises linoleic and linolenic acids, pro-vitamin A, and essential fatty acids to target photoaging symptoms and promote fresh, healthy, and more youthful skin.

Nature included antioxidants and the moisturizing benefits of fatty acids. This remarkable oil contains Vitamins A, E, C, along with the omega fatty acids 3, 6, and 9. These encourage skin cell turnover and elasticity, while improving the appearance of hyperpigmentation (dark patches on the skin).

Christina Moss Naturals Rosehip Seed Oil is entirely safe. It is famous for its healing properties. It penetrates deep within the skin layers to stimulate collagen, rejuvenate the tissues, and moisturize your skin. Thus, Rosehip seed oil is an ideal product that can do wonders to your everyday skincare routine.

Benefits of Rosehip Seed Oil 

Hydrates

Rosehip oil keeps your skin super hydrated as it contains a wealth of essential fatty acids such as linoleic and linolenic acids. These fatty acids increase the strength of the skin cell wall, which helps cells hold on to water. This oil has the power to penetrate deep within the skin layers where all the natural benefits mentioned above can work their magic.

Moisturizes 

As mentioned, Rosehip Seed oil is an excellent natural moisturizer for all skin types. It will lock in your skin’s natural hydration. Thus, it keeps your skin moisturized for long hours.

Boosts Collagen Formation 

Rosehip oil enhances your collagen production with Vitamins A and C. It inhibits enzymes that break down collagen which will increase skin elasticity and firmness.

Exfoliates and Brightens Skin Rosehip Oil by Christina Moss Naturals

Rosehip oil encourages cell turnover using Vitamin A or retinol. Similarly, Vitamin C also assists in cell regeneration, along with boosting overall radiance. In this way, Rosehip oil helps reduce dullness, giving you glowing skin.

Reduces Inflammation 

Because it is rich in both polyphenols and anthocyanin, Rosehip Seed Oil may reduce inflammation, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, etc. Likewise, it contains Vitamin E, an antioxidant famous for its anti-inflammatory effects.

Reduces Scars And Fine Lines

With these antioxidants and fatty acids, Rosehip Seed oil is effective in treating wounds and scars. It enhances the natural process of cell regeneration, reducing spots and fine lines. In this way, this oil helps you heal quickly with less chance of leaving scars.

Combats Acne 

Rosehip oil can be helpful for acne-prone skin. It has both anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties that can fight acne. Consult your dermatologist before using this to treat acne.

Reduces Hyperpigmentation 

The rich amount of Vitamin A, including retinoids in Rosehip oil can help reduce hyperpigmentation and skin discoloration. Likewise, it contains melanin-reducing properties.

Brightens your Skin 

Rosehip oil lightens your skin tone with lycopene and beta carotene. These compounds help brighten up your skin, contributing to a more beautiful and even skin tone.

How to Use It? 

Since rosehip seed oil is a dry oil, we suggest using it each night at the end of your skincare routine following all your water-based products.

Rosehip oil is useful as a carrier oil (a base oil) for essential oils. So, use rosehip oil on its own, or add in a few drops of essential oil. You can also add some this is oil to your favorite moisturizer. To do that, simply combine the two in a separate bowl, mix and apply to the skin.

Apply the rosehip oil once or twice a day, just like you would use moisturizer. However, you may need to contact your health care provider to confirm the dosage necessary to treat wounds or skin conditions like eczema.

Storing Instructions 

Rosehip oil is a cold-pressed oil. That means no chemicals were used to extract the oil from the rose hips. We package our fresh, cold-pressed Rosehip oil in amber glass jars. These help shield the product from exposure to light. We chose glass instead of plastic to help ensure purity. Keep this product fresh by storing it in a cool dry location with the cap tightly sealed. For optimum freshness and increased shelf life, consider storing it in a cosmetic refrigerator.

My Favorite Natural Preservatives

Preservatives

Bacteria, mold, and yeast are a fact of life. Sometimes they’re beneficial, but when it comes to health and beauty products? No thank you. Preservatives are a vital part of making sure your lotion, soap, or shampoo lasts long enough for you to use it.

Unfortunately, preservatives are also an area where you can run into trouble if you use conventional products. Take parabens, for example. While this widely used class of preservatives does extend shelf life, it is also associated with a number of troubling health concerns.
