INTO IT: ROSEHIP OIL

INTO IT: ROSEHIP OIL

We’re feelin’ floral this month and are focusing on Rosehip Oil in this edition of Into It. Yep, you guessed it, this comes from roses, but why is this floral ingredient one your skincare collection needs ASAP?

What is rosehip oil?

Derived from the seeds of rose plants, rosehip oil is made by pressing seeds to extract the oil. It’s then treated to make it safe for skin, resulting in the rosehip oil you find in your everyday skincare products.

Why is rosehip oil good for skin?

It’s probably quicker to list what it’s not good for, but the key reason why love it are all listed below,

It’s a source of antioxidants. Rosehip Oil is a source of both Tocopherols and Carotenoids, meaning it helps to protect against the oxidative stresses in the environment.

It helps to improve the tightness of skin. By increasing the production of both Collagen and Elastin, use of this oil will help to improve the appearance of skin’s tightness, resulting in younger looking skin.

It repairs the skin’s barrier. A skin lipid, this intensely nourishing oil will help to repair cracks in the skin’s surface, thereby ensuring that hydration is locked in.

    We already gave Pai a shout out in our blog post on the best Vegan skincare brands, and we’re adding it in here too thanks to its cult Rosehip Bioregenerate Oil.

    The oil is extracted from the rose seeds via supercritical extraction as opposed to cold pressing. This is a costlier extraction process, but is much gentler, meaning the Rosehip Oil produced remains fresher for longer.

    Deep orange in colour, this facial oil will help to restore skin overnight, working on fine lines and skin elasticity.

When in doubt: add glitter. I'm obsessed with shimmer eyeshadows and always layer up my highlighter.
