Rosa rubiginosa - Rosehip seed oil - The healing oil. This oil is produced in Chile and has become a super popular oil due to its regenerative properties. The oil is derived from the seeds of the rose bush which grow plentiful in the wild in the southern Andes.
Roseship seed oil is clinically proven to regenerate tissue and is used in the treatment of burns, facial wrinkles, and scar following surgery. This oil can be used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused which are a telltale sign of sun damaged skin. Roseship seed oil can also be used to reduce the hyperpigmenation of scars and prevent/reduce the appearance of keloid scars by loosening up fibrous cords.
Roseship seed has very high levels of linoleic and linolenic fatty acids which are important for skin repair and regeneration. Roseship seed oil is great for mature skin but should be avoided on acne prone skin because the oil is quite thick and can sit on top of the skin and cause breakouts. Always purchase oils from reputable sellers and ensure that you are buying organic or unrefined. Once refined, Roseship seed oil will lose most of its incredible benefits.
A word of note, Roseship seed oil can be diluted in coconut oil or apricot kernel oil as it is quite expensive and diluting it will save money over time. Also to note, this oil has a very short self life. When buying oils, ensure to write the date you opened the bottle as a reminder.
