Nature's Shield Organic Rosehip Oil 50ml
Rosehip oil is obtained from the seeds of the full-ripened fruit of the wil Rosa canina bush. Rosa canina is an undomesticated member of the Rosacea family, which contains all other types of roses. It is grown wildly through the temperate zone of the earth, including Asia, Africa, South America and Europe. Nature's Shield Rosehip oil is certified organic and sustainable and is cold-press extracted, for preservation of its natural qualities.
Rosehip oil is most prized for its application to signs of ageing skin - wrinkles, sun damage, dryness etc. In studies, it has been shown useful for wrinkles, scars and burns, stretch marks, pigmentation, dry sensitive skin, sun damage, acne and acne scarring.
Rosehip oil is rich in a cross-section of nutrients which are all highly beneficial for skin health:
- Vitamin E - is anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant, helps with sun damage and combats skin's natural ageing process.
- Vitamin C - is protective and repairing to UV damage and the effect of ageing. It has also been shown in studies to impact hyper-pigmentation.
- Fatty acids, omega 3,6 and 9 - which are essential for regeneration of damaged skin tissue.
- Phenols have antibacterial, antiviral and anti-fungal properties, which makes it non-irritating for eczema-prone skin and can make it helpful in irritating-type skin issues.
