Rosehip Oil is one of the most versatile skin care products on the market, and it can help with practically every skin problem.
Here are 20 amazing benefits and uses of your Merindah Botanicals Certified Organic Rose Hip Oil to benefit your skin.
It’s one of the best Rosehip Oils available in the world. It has some of the highest levels of Vitamin A which is known to help reduce the appearance of acne, scarring and wrinkles.
We only use pure, unrefined and certified organic rosehip oil to maintain the integrity of the powerful healing properties of Rosehip Oil.
But first, what is Rosehip Oil?
Rosehips are the fruit of the rosebush. Roses produce vivid reddish-orange, spherical fruit after they die and are left on the shrub. The little edible fruits are said to have therapeutic properties.
Rosehips are produced by all roses, but some types, such as Rosa rugose and Rosa canina, are better at it. When purchasing rosehip oil, look for a product that is ideally certified organic rosehip oil to ensure that it is pesticide-free.
Why is Rosehip Oil good for the skin?
Rosehip oil is rich in Vitamin C and Vitamin A. It also contains essential fatty acids such as:
- oleic acid
- palmitic acid
- linoleic acid
- gamma linolenic acid
Rosehip oil is also a great source of vitamin F, which is a fatty acid made of linoleic acid and alpha-linoleic acid.
What are the benefits and uses of Rosehip Oil?
1. Face Oil
Apply 3 to 4 drops of Rosehip Oil onto damp skin on your face morning and night to repair skin and give it a healthy glow.
2. Use Rosehip Oil on Scars
The application of our Nurturing Rosehip Oil to recent scars or even old scars up to twenty years old may help to improve scars in both colour and texture.
The essential fatty acids and vitamins in rosehip oil help to keep damaged skin hydrated so that a wound can heal quickly without drying out too quickly and tearing the skin surrounding the area. Its anti-inflammatory properties help to prevent infection.
