Why we use it

Rosehip seed oil is incredibly rich in skin-beneficial components. Its fatty acid profile is over 50% linoleic acid, or omega-6 fatty acid, which is crucial for skin health. The oil also contains pro-vitamin A, which is converted in the skin into vitamin A (also known as retinol). Rosehip seed oil has well-studied anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-hyperpigmentation qualities.
