Rosehip oil is very high in essential fatty acids, retinol A and is a popular GLA skin care oil used to help treat dry, irritated skin. It is also used in specialty creams and lotions to treat stretch marks and wrinkles.
The tannins in rosehip oil make it an astringent and non-greasy oil. It offers anti-oxidant and photo-protective qualities from the carotenoids. As little as 6% can help with UV damaged skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and skin barrier repair thanks to the linolenic acid.
This oil is light golden yellow in colour and penetrates the skin quickly without leaving a greasy feel.
