3 reasons to make facial oils part your daily beauty routine

Posted February 9, 2021

Facial oils are able to deeply penetrate the skin’s layers to nourish and rejuvenate skin cells

By bringing a quality facial oil into your skincare routine every day, you are giving your skin the nutrients it requires to maintain its suppleness and elasticity.

1. Facial oils nourish and brighten dry skin:

Facial oils such as Rosehip Oil are a powerhouse of moisturising goodness full of essential fatty acids that help repair and regenerate damaged skin tissue.

Restorative antioxidants from pomegranate and raspberry oils found in our Revive Illuminating Essence Oil, help to moisturise and stimulate cell turnover, improving your skin’s texture and appearance.

Beta-carotene, also found in our Revive Illuminating Essence Oil, is an antioxidant which removes free radicals responsible for skin damage slowing down both the visible and invisible signs of ageing.


2. Facial oils reduce the appearance of wrinkles:

Facial oils diminish fine lines and deliver an intense boost of hydration to help prevent the signs of premature ageing, enhancing the skin’s elasticity. Rosehip Oil, CoQ10, Lycopene, and Vitamin C & A are all potent antioxidants that help protect against the visible signs of ageing.

Vitamin A is one of the most important properties in reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and scarring.

Kosmea’s Certified Organic Rosehip Oil has the highest level of Vitamin A of all Rosehip Oils in the market because of the way we extract the oil from the Rosehip. The quality and level of Vitamin A is maintained at a high level (see below for more information).

Our customers have seen improvements in many skin ailments using our Rosehip Oil, including:

  • Scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Burns
  • Acne & acne scarring
  • Pigmentation
  • Dry & sensitive skin
  • Sun damage
  • Dermatitis, Eczema and Rosacea

3. Facial oils act as the perfect primers:

Facial oils plump and penetrate through the top layers of skin, sinking into the areas that require the most hydration. This process leaves you with an evenly nourished, smooth canvas to apply makeup to. Therefore you can combine your primer and base into one step by using a facial oil instead.

Creating this protective barrier before applying makeup also ensures that makeup doesn’t clog your pores and that foundation spreads easily. An added bonus is that you won’t have to use as much product as the oil helps the foundation spread further.

When you buy Kosmea’s Certified Organic Rosehip Oil, you’re supporting sustainability and community

From plant to bottle, we employ sustainable production and practices in the manufacture of Kosmea Certified Organic Rosehip Oil and it’s certified organic by the ACO (Australian Certified Organic).


Kosmea’s Rosehip Oil has more Vitamin A than any other rose hip oil on the market.

We use the whole fruit – flesh, skin and seed – with a supercritical (CO2) extraction method without heat or chemicals to ensure none of the oil’s potency is lost during production.
