Stop and smell the roses – and we’re not speaking figuratively! Consider roses for the face instead of the vase. Natural rose essence, rosehip seed oil and essential oil deliver major skin health benefits like antioxidant and anti-inflammatory protection, wound healing, and reduction in the appearance of fine lines.
Rose as a skincare ingredient is beneficial for all skin types and conditions whether you use in cleanser, (Rosehip Seed Cleanser), toner (Aloe Rose), serum (Rosehip Seed Oil, Renewal Serum) or moisturizer (Super Emollient Crème).
Antioxidant Protection: The antioxidants found in rose help strengthen skin cells, which helps regenerate skin tissue. They are powerful in neutralizing free radicals, which helps minimize the signs of aging and photo damage to the skin.
Hydration: While rose is beneficial for all skin types, it works especially well on dry or dehydrated skin because of its intense moisturizing properties. Rosehip Seed Oil helps protect the skin from TEWL (trans epidermal moisture loss) and strengthens the barrier function while balancing hydration levels.
Line Eraser: Rose oils have high levels of vitamins A and C – a must for mature skin conditions and dealing with premature signs of aging. Rosehip seed oil is derived from the small fruits that grow on the rose plants, which are a natural source of retinol.
Healing & Redness Reduction: Packed with anti-inflammatory properties, rose in skincare helps reduce redness and skin irritation. The combination of antioxidants and fatty acids in rosehip oil are responsible for its wound healing properties and reducing inflamed skin conditions like eczema and dermatitis.
Controls Excess Oil: Even oily skin needs moisture, and overstripping is a common cause of excess oil production. The deep hydration properties of rose help increase water content in the skin, thereby helping to reduce excess oil production. Rose also contains astringent properties which help remove bacteria and skin debris which helps maintain a healthy, balanced skin pH.
