Contains vitamins A, C and E. with strong Anti-inflammatory properties, Collagen stimulation, balances Sebum levels, reduces skin pores, improved skin cell turnover, improved blood circulation and smooths out the Dermis helping improve fine lines and wrinkles. We recommend this oil for all skin types, especially combination and mature skin types. Being balanced in Linoleic and Oleic acid helps regulate both oils benefits and negates the risk of causing the skin to be too rich in Oleic acid.

Detailed benefits of Rose hip oil see below:
Oleic and Linoleic acid:
Concentration: Oleic acid: up to 42% Linoleic acid: up to 75%
Both have there benefits and concentrate on difference skin types but together they give the skin a balance of both. With Linoleic acid concentrating on the Epidermis and Oleic acid working on the Dermis you have the perfect choice for normal or combination skin types. Essentially Linolenic acid locks moisture in and balances Sebum levels while Oleic acid plumps and hydrates the Dermis, fading fine lines and wrinkles.
Sunflower oil has a higher level of linoleic acid, while this doesn’t negate the benefits for dry and mature skin it does improve its benefits fr balancing sebum levels and working on the epidermis.
Alpha Linoleic acid:
Concentration: up to 50% – A Polyunsaturated fatty acid (Better known as Omega 3). An organic compound produced by the Mitochondria within our body’s cells. The amount produced is minimal so the majority of ALA we need we consume from our food. Known for its powerful Anti-inflammatory benefits which calms the skin and can improve scar tissue. Rosehip oil is one of the richest Organic sources of Alpha Linoleic acid.
Vitamin A (Retinol):
Vitamin A comes in two forms Retinol and Carotenoids. Retinol is readily formed vitamin A while Carotenoids get turned into Vitamin A via the liver. Luckily for skincare the skin can readily absorb them without going through the liver making topical skincare with vitamin A content greatly beneficial for the skin!
Concentrates its benefits within the dermis by improving the production of Collagen and Elastin by stimulating Fibroblasts which produce Collagen in the Dermis. Normalizes oil production in the Epidermis which reduces the chances of clogged pores preventing and clearing breakouts. Naturally moisturising which hydrates while giving your skin a radiant glow.
Also known as Ascorbic acid, an essential vitamin for the body that we can’t produce so have to absorb from our food primarily fruit. It is a powerful Antioxidant so helps protect the skin from Free Radicals such as pollution, smoking etc. Its most popular benefit is the bodies need of vitamin C to produce Collagen within the body which makes up 80% of the skins tissue. Low levels of Collagen lead to increased levels of wrinkles with increased risk of bruising and reduced elasticity.
A common vitamin found in many oils but in varying concentrations. It is primarily an Antioxidant that improves blood circulation while reducing the signs of ageing. It works well at cellular regeneration improving the cellular membranes of skin cells. An essential vitamin for healing scarred and blemished skin.
