1. Rosehip Seed Oil – What exactly is it?
Although Rosehip Seed Oil is also known as wild rose oil, it is not the same thing. So, please do not expect a captivating rose scent when you open the bottle - for this experience, you could spray on our rose water. The scent of Rosehip Seed Oil is neutral, because, unlike rose water, it is not extracted from the flowers of the bush.
Our Rosehip Seed Oil is obtained from the seeds and pulp of the rosehip of the dog rose, or Rosa Canina. To meet our requirements on organic cultivation, fair trading and treatment of employees, and commitment to the environment, we have deliberately chosen a supplier from Argentina.
Due to the special process of extracting the oil using CO2, the active ingredients are better preserved than in cold pressing, which means that the dark orange oil retains a full load of benefits for your skin. And that brings us to the question that is probably on your mind now:
2. Multi-effective helper: Why is Rosehip Seed Oil so special?
So, what does the new oil bring to the table Quite a lot! Once you look at the list of valuable active ingredients, it becomes pretty obvious: we have a pretty multi-effective product here. Vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, carotenoids (nothing to do with carrots, we'll get to that in a bit), omega-3, -6, AND -9 fatty acids... all substances that our skin is only too happy to absorb. But what is it that they do exactly?
"A" as in amazing: This vitamin is responsible for the structure and renewal of the skin, a true regeneration hero. And for all sun-seekers: In addition to sunscreen, the Rosehip Seed Oil is now one of the essentials for you, because the vitamin A it contains protects the skin from DNA damage when exposed to the sun.
Yet another vitamin hero! It brightens age and pigmentation spots, prevents wrinkles, and stimulates collagen production. Which, as you may know, if you follow us closely, starts to slowly decline as early as age 25. Vitamin C gives a beautiful glow, not only in spring.
An enormously important vitamin to take in, not only from the outside but through nutrition. Due to its antioxidant effect, it successfully protects us from free radicals. Free radicals are the highly reactive, aggressive molecules that cause cell damage in our organism and can thus cause diseases if they are present in particularly high amounts over a long period. Among other illnesses, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and arthritis are associated with them. The intake of vitamin E through food, but also skincare, can therefore reduce the triggering oxidative stress.
For impure and also dry skin, the fatty acids of Rosehip Seed Oil are extremely beneficial, as they have an anti-inflammatory effect and regulate the skin's natural sebum production so that under- or overproduction is balanced out.
Well ok, carotenoids do have a little something to do with carrots. As in, they contain quite a lot of them. But what exactly do they do for our body? This plant pigment can do more than just color fruits and vegetable orange. Like vitamin E, it has an antioxidant effect and fights unwelcome free radicals in the same way, which prevents cell damage and slows down skin aging. Again, proper nutrition and skincare can make a big difference.
Our Rosehip Seed Oil has more than earned the description "multi-effective". So how can you best incorporate it into your skincare routine and are there perhaps other areas of the body that benefit from it?
3. How to - The many ways of applying your new favorite oil
Rosehip Seed Oil would not be truly multi-effective if it could not also be used in a variety of ways. This is how you can apply the new all-rounder:
Of course, you can integrate it into your face care routine. Since the skin switches to regeneration mode overnight, the oil's active ingredients can provide wonderful support, if you apply it in the evening. You can also use it in the morning or even twice a day. Either on its own, so you massage a few drops into your moistened skin or mix a few drops with your day or night cream to make it even more nourishing.
As you have already read above, the active ingredients of the oil are particularly suitable for impure and dry skin. The combination of boosting cell regeneration, regulating sebum production, and fighting free radicals causes a positive effect, especially for these skin types. But all other skin types benefit from it just as much, because the oil is particularly well-tolerated, which makes it particularly suitable for very sensitive skin, too. Since Rosehip Seed Oil is non-comedogenic, i.e. it does not clog pores, it can be applied to the face without hesitation. Its antibacterial effect can make pimples subside more quickly - but please use it sparingly, especially if you have acne.
Mature skin particularly loves the active substances contained in the Rosehip Seed Oil. And if you're thinking "But I don't have mature skin", I'm happy to repeat myself because it's pretty valuable info: skin aging starts from around 25 (!) and is supported with the right active ingredients and products, this natural process can be slowed down. Rosehip Seed Oil is high on the list, because of its mix of vitamins (we know their effects now), which keeps the skin elastic, plump and radiant, thanks to stimulated collagen production. The discoloration is reduced, cell damage caused by free radicals is prevented. The result: we're preserving our young skin. And the glow doesn't come from just anywhere. Rosehip Seed Oil is also quite the moisture booster.
Thanks to the oil’s regenerating properties, it nourishes and cares for scars, stretch marks, and other damages to the skin. Simply add a few drops to the damp skin area and gently massage it in. Take your time with this, because the movements of the massage support the healing process of your skin and keep it elastic.
For sunbathed, irritated skin, spray our Aloe Vera Spray generously on your body and then spread a bit of Rosehip Seed Oil on the sun-exposed areas to counteract damages to your skin.
To prolong the content of the bottle, when you use the Rosehip Seed Oil on your body, I recommend applying it mixed with our Squalane. With Squalane, you can go a long way with only a few drops, because it is distributed so well. Plus, it acts as a carrier for the active substances of the Rosehip Seed Oil, which allows them to penetrate deep into your skin.
Rosehip Seed Oil is deeply nourishing care for cuticles, which tend to dry out and chip, facing everyday challenges such as cleaning and washing. Our everyday lives put a strain on our hands. Time to give something back, with a nice extra-nourishing hand massage, including the cuticles. Use a mixture of Squalane or Hand Cream and Rosehip Seed Oil to pamper your hands with. Be patient allowing it to be absorbed by your skin. I recommend doing this before going to bed and putting on cotton gloves, to give the skin enough time to regenerate overnight with the help of the active substances of the oils.
With a tablespoon of warmed Rosehip Seed Oil, you can make a wonderful scalp treatment, especially for dry, itchy, and also flaky scalps. Spread the pleasantly warm (not hot) oil on the scalp, massage it in gently and wash it out thoroughly after 30 minutes with a mild shampoo. Important for dry and flaky scalps: Use mild care products, avoid surfactants, and use only lukewarm water to allow the skin to soothe and regenerate. By the way, the hair lengths, or ends are also happy about a bit of special attention from the Rosehip Seed Oil. If you like, use it as a leave-in product on your ends. For curly, thick hair (welcome to the club), I recommend you mix it with some aloe vera gel.
