The area is certified organic, which means that no artificial fertilisers or pesticides are used.


Over 25 Years of
Skin Care

Success for Marie Kapetanakis came in a bottle of certified organic golden rose hip oil. The ‘magic’ healing oil was the catalyst behind Marie founding the beauty empire, Kosmea, which transformed the global skincare industry. The all-natural brand and its hero product Certified Organic Rose Hip Oil turns 26 this September- an undeniable milestone that benchmarks the future success for the brand. From the beginning, Marie promised to keep Kosmea’s skincare innovations true to her brand values: natural ingredients, products that work, operating socially and environmentally responsible. Giving back is something close to Marie’s heart.

Why Is Rose Hip Oil Good For The Skin?

Why Is Rose Hip Oil Good For The Skin?

Humans have known about the benefits of rosehips use for hundreds of years. Kosmea has taken nature’s gift and crafted a pure, unadulterated organic oil that does wonders for the skin.

A Rich Source of Essential Fatty Acids

Omega 3, 6, and 9 are the essential fatty acids required by our body. These elements are vital for the health of our skin and our overall health and well being. The human body is unable to produce these fatty acids. These acids help repair damaged skin tissue and regenerate skin cells. It is the essential fatty acids in rosehip oil that quench dry, sun damaged skin and help to improve the appearance of burns, scars, wrinkles and stretch marks. Kosmea’s Certified Organic Rosehip Oil is guaranteed to contain a minimum of 80% essential fatty acids.

Natural source of Vitamin A

Rosehip oil is rich in vitamin A or trans-retinoic acid. The latest research reveals that trans-retinoic acid could help prevent premature ageing caused due to sun exposure. When skin is exposed to the sun, it can increase levels of enzymes that lead to the breakdown of collagen and elastin. The trans-retinoic acid in rose hip oil reduces the activity of these skin-damaging enzymes, reducing damage caused by the sun.
