Although the draw of our skincare range is undoubtedly its use of CBD oil, I believe it to be equally as important that our products are also packed with many other nutritious natural ingredients that can have benefits for all skin types. I’m keen to shine a light on those here too on the Ohana blog, so this month, I want to give praise to an ingredient that is found in products from both our skincare and body . care range; let’s talk about Rosehip Oil and the incredible properties it boasts.
Where is it found?
Rosehip Oil can be extracted from the fruit and seeds of the Rosa Canina Rose Bush, usually found in the mountainous regions of Chile and South Africa. It has been used for centuries around the world, and today is recognised for its skin benefits.
What does it contain?
Rosehip Oil is known to contain a whole host of skin-loving properties, including fatty acids such as oleic acid, palmitic acid and linoleic acid, as well as vitamins C and A. Basically it’s brimming with goodness.
How does it benefit the skin?
The fatty acids found in Rosehip Oil can help to boost skin hydration and elasticity, as well as encourage skin cell renewal and repair, so it’s a great one to look out for if you’re keen to maintain the look of youthful skin. It can help to reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks and wrinkles, as well as helping to brighten and even skin tone, so it really is a multi-purpose ingredient.
Being rich in vitamin A has its benefits too, helping to alleviate the effects of sun damage and diminish the look of hyperpigmentation.
Where can you find it?
Many skincare brands use Rosehip Oil, but too often they lessen its incredible properties by including synthetic ingredients in their formulations. In the Ohana range (all natural, I would add), you’ll find Rosehip Oil in our Saucha Face Oil, and in our Ahimsa Revitalising Body Oil, and we use the amount needed to give you the most impact and therefore the best results. With amazing antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, these are great products for all skin types, and Rosehip Oil is one of the key ingredients making it so effective.
