Bringing you our natural, fresh, luscious products is not always simple. Ah, my kingdom for some organic rosehip seed oil.
But some of our other organic ingredients need to be delivered to you in the full flush of freshness, so that you get all of the benefit of their skincare magic.
Last week, there was no organic rosehip seed oil to be had, due to production delays in Chile where fields of gorgeous briar roses yield the best oil.
Fortunately, we managed to track down some beautiful oil, and our illuminating Serum Supérieure and Body Crème Supérieure remain in plentiful supply.
Reasons to Love Rosehip Oil
The ancients, from the Mayans to the Egyptians, knew what they were up to when they used this luscious oil in their beauty regimes:
- Rosehip seed oil is known as a ‘dry’ oil, which absorbs beautifully, and enhances your skin’s natural oil barrier. This reduces moisture loss and helps keep your skin smooth and plump, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Rosehip seed oil nourishes dry skin and helps regulate its elasticity. It’s a polyunsaturated oil which is more than 70% essential fatty acids – linoleic acid or omega 6 and linolenic acid or omega 3 – the building blocks of healthy cell membranes. (Essential fatty acid deficiency may leave your skin dry, and promote whiteheads and blackheads.)
- It evens skin tone, lightening the appearance of age spots and other blemishes.
It’s a wonderful oil. I’m not sure what we’d have done without it!
