Exuding an exquisite light texture, rosehip oil sinks effortlessly into your skin, devoid of any greasy aftermath. Its characteristic yellowish-orange hue paired with a subtle, nutty aroma enhances the overall sensory experience.
The oil is a powerhouse of vital fatty acids like linoleic, oleic, palmitic, and stearic acids. Its concentrations of vitamins A, C, and E boast antioxidant properties, shielding your skin from free radicals while diminishing the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines.
Further enriched with carotenoids, rosehip oil helps soothe inflammation and guard your skin against sun damage. It also harbors crucial minerals such as zinc, magnesium, and calcium, pivotal for maintaining skin health.

Why Choose Organic, Cold-Pressed RosehipOil?
Organic ingredients have more potent nutrients and are free from chemicals and pesticides that enter your body. The key to beautiful skin lies in vitamins and nutrients, so we only choose to source the finest ingredients without chemicals and pesticides.
- Organic (Biodynamic) Label: Refers to how ingredients are grown and harvested. Compared to conventionally grown plants, organic products have little to no exposure to nitrates and pesticide residues, making them a better option for consumers.
- Cold-Pressed Label: Refers to how ingredients are processed from a plant or seed to an oil. When oils are cold-pressed, they are extracted from their source using mechanical methods rather than heat or solvents.
With cold-pressed oils, there is very little processing, which allows it to retain important nutrients responsible for healing. Ultimately, cold pressing delivers a potent product that's highly effective AND safe because there aren't any additives. It’s a win/win for your skin!
