Over 25 Years of
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.
At Kosmea we take pride in being pioneers of rare, undiscovered ingredients. It is founder Marie Kapetanakis’s goal to bring innovative, natural products within everyone’s reach. Kosmea was one of the first skin care companies to challenge conventional skin care manufacturing by avoiding the use of harmful synthetic ingredients and sourcing ingredients new to the Australian market. We are proud to have won numerous awards for our products and their natural ingredients both in Australia and internationally.
Kosmea is an Australian natural skin care company and an international success story, founded on the healing properties of certified organic rosehip oil. From the earliest days the company and its products have been developed with a strong vision, determination and commitment to integrity.
When I started Kosmea, I wanted to change the way people cared for their skin by bringing innovative, natural products within everyone’s reach.
It gives me so much satisfaction to hear from customers who have used Kosmea and have experienced the benefits of healthier, balanced skin — it’s the best part of my job!

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.
Omg! I cannot believe the way my skin looks and feels! I haven’t even been using your product for a week! My skin feels amazing. No more itching! Just got my delivery and the hand cream is a treat like all your other products. Love that rose scent… it would be a beautiful perfume!! Im hooked on your product! Thank you again for your wonderful products. Love them

My son, aged 5, had a prominent mole removed from his chin by a plastic surgeon. Over time, the scar stretched wider and became more pink. The GP had no recommendations but agreed a scar gel/oil would possibly assist. We tried Kosmea Rose Hip Oil, he enjoyed being able to apply it himself, and we used it daily for several weeks. Over a few weeks we noticed a marked reduction in the width and pinkness of his scar. He continues to apply it approximately weekly, as he grows, the scar will grow, and the oil will reduce the scar size. We are extremely glad we use the Rose Hip Oil, it is non irritating and the smell is tolerated by small boys! I would recommend it to anyone with scars.

Thank You for your advise on the phone yesterday regarding my daughters contact dermatitis around her eyes (a reaction to eyelash glue) on both upper and lower lids. After several applications in Rescue Balm over less than 24 hours, the dryness, itching and inflammation has almost totally resolved, the skin appears moist and of almost normal tone. My daughter said her eyes feel comfortable for the first time in weeks. Previous treatments with antihistamine and hydrocortisone cream had no effect. She is absolutely thrilled.
After a week in Hamilton Island, spending everday in the sun and salt water, the Rose Glow body mist and rose body lotion kept my skin hydrated and glowing, and stopped me from feeling dry and scratchy which usually happens after time at the beach. Although he will never admit this now, my partner had me spraying the mist on him as well after too much time in the sun! Also, the radiance oil and SPF 30 moisturising lotion are a dream combo and my skin has responded really beautifully to them, looking fresh, smoother and definitely not burnt!
I just wanted to say THANK YOU so much for an amazing product. I have suffered with Dermatillomania for many years which unfortunately left me with many scars :( Kosmea Rosehip Oil has reduced their appearance significantly. It is one thing to have a product to improve ones beauty but to improve ones self esteem, is quite another. One of the hardest things with OCD related problems is the mental torment and to have a product like yours to provide such great changes emotionally as well as physically is just a miracle! You will never know how much you changed my life. Thank you again :)
