Rosehip oil is one of the star ingredients in our Radiance Skin Perfecting Serum because of its special superpowers.
Its occlusive consistency coats and hugs your skin to prevent moisture loss. Rosehip Oil is high in linoleic acid (a fatty acid) making it friendly for acne-prone skin! It’s also rich in essential fatty acids, high in antioxidative properties and is the highest plant source of retinoic acid.
Research shows that using Rosehip Oil is beneficial for inflammatory skin conditions, such as eczema or acne. It relieves irritated skin and helps to keep it calm.
Rosehip Oil’s powerful antioxidant properties help to restore your skin like no other. It not only prevents and slows down the damage of skin cells but also fights against free radicals from attacking your system.
When your skin is compromised and can’t fight back against harmful effects, it accelerates the process of aging and impairs your skin barrier function. Using products that are high in antioxidant content such as Rosehip Oil can be your saviour!
But do I REALLY need it?
Studies show that people with acne-prone skin have a lower percentage of linoleic acid in their sebum compared to those with normal skin. Essentially, this means they might have thicker oils on their skin. Sebum aids in the development of acne and using products high in linoleic acid like Rosehip Oil can be ideal for acne-prone skin.
Let’s get real - UV damage is a villain and causes major skin aging. It accelerates the process by generating free radicals that breakdown our skin building block, collagen (the structural protein that keeps our skin looking smooth and supple). Luckily, Rosehip Oil is a warrior with amazing anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects and helps counteract the effects of sun damage!
How Do I Use Rosehip Oil?
You can apply rosehip oil in addition to your moisturizer, as a replacement or even mix it in! Or you can also look for products that contain rosehip oil, like our Face Elixir, Luminous Hydrating Glow Complex and Radiance Skin Perfecting Serum!
