Top 8 Reasons Why Rosehip is infused into our Body Balm



Curious about our choice to incorporate Rosehip into the carrier oil of our 100% Natural Body Balm?  




Rosehip oil is extracted from Rosa aff. rubiginosa, a type of rose found in the high mountains of Chile, known locally as Rosa mosqueta.

Composition: Rosehip oil is rich in essential fatty acids, including oleic acid (omega-9), linoleic acid (omega-6), and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3). It also contains natural Tretinoin or Retinoic Acid, a Vitamin A derivative, beneficial for skin tissue.

Scientific Studies: Studies conducted at the Universities of Concepcion (Chile) and Missouri (USA) have demonstrated the oil's effectiveness in reducing scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, preventing premature aging, improving skin color and tone.

 Therefore, it contributes positively to:

  1. Scar Treatment: Rosehip oil is often used to help reduce the appearance of scars, including acne scars, surgical scars, and scars from injuries. Its regenerative properties can aid in promoting smoother, more even-toned skin over time.
  2. Wrinkle Reduction: Due to its high content of essential fatty acids and vitamin A derivatives, rosehip oil is effective in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Regular use can help improve skin elasticity and firmness.
  3. Stretch Mark Prevention and Reduction: Pregnant women often use rosehip oil to help prevent and reduce the appearance of stretch marks caused by pregnancy or rapid weight changes. Its hydrating and nourishing properties can support skin elasticity and promote healing.
  4. Sun Damage Repair: The antioxidants and vitamin C present in rosehip oil make it effective in repairing sun-damaged skin. It can help reduce inflammation, hyperpigmentation and other signs of sun damage, while also protecting the skin from further harm.
  5. Hydration and Moisture Retention: Rosehip oil is lightweight and easily absorbed by the skin, making it an excellent moisturizer for all skin types, including oily and acne-prone skin. It helps to balance the skin's natural oils while providing long-lasting hydration.
  6. Hair Care: In addition to its benefits for the skin, rosehip oil can also be used to nourish and condition the hair. It helps to strengthen hair follicles, reduce frizz, and improve overall hair health, leaving hair soft, shiny, and manageable.
  7. Anti-inflammatory Properties: Rosehip oil has anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe irritated or inflamed skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea. It calms redness, itching, and discomfort, promoting healing and skin regeneration.
  8. Natural Makeup Remover: Rosehip oil can be used as a gentle and effective makeup remover, particularly for waterproof or long-wearing makeup products. Its emollient texture helps to dissolve makeup and impurities without stripping the skin of its natural oils.
