| Skin | Rosehip Oil is becoming widely appreciated for not only moisturizing but improving the condition of damaged skin. Research indicates it smoothes and softens, helping to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes and scarring while improving elasticity and firmness. It helps to even skin tone to improve the appearance of age spots and other minor skin discolorations. Helps to treat dry patches and softens stretch marks.
Rosehip Oil has been appreciated by worldwide for centuries in places where it is cultivated. Stories exist of how the beautifully flawless and deep complexions of even mature women from Chile were attributed to the special qualities it contains.
| Nails | Soothes dry areas and nurtures cuticles.
| Hair | Andean Indians have long since used Rosehip Oil to condition not only skin but hair. The oil provides deep conditioning leaving hair healthy, shiny and manageable. It is used in many haircare products, but usually diluted by other ingredients.
The biochemical compounds of the fruit of the Rosehip are currently stimulating much interest within the scientific research community. In part this is due to the high levels of antioxidants the extract contains and the subsequent effects on free radicals. (1) Rosehip fruit extract has consistently proven to be particularly high in flavonoids which are evidenced to be significant in limiting oxidative damage. One study in particular found that regular topical application of antioxidants 'may be of the utmost benefit' in protecting skin against the rigours of oxidative stress. (2) As oxidative stress is now widely implicated in photo-aging and the development of wrinkles, natural antioxidant application of flavonoids may limit skin damage. Rosehip Oil is also high in linoleic acid, low levels of which are implicated as being a leading cause of acne. (3)
