replenish sun-damaged skin with nutrient-rich Certified Organic Rosehip Oil
Posted January 15, 2021
The sun is essential for your health and wellbeing.
For example, the skin uses sunlight to manufacture Vitamin D which is required for healthy bone development. While too much sun damages the skin, there is a balance between some sun exposure and not enough. This depends on where you live, your skin tone and your lifestyle.
Some of these elements you can’t control, but one thing you have complete control over is the replenishment that you provide your skin with every day.
What causes sun damage to the skin?
The skin cells in the top layer (epidermis) of the skin contain the pigment melanin which is responsible for protecting the deeper layers of the skin for the sun’s UV rays. Melanin causes the skin to darken. As these darkened epidermal cells move toward the surface, they are shed and so your tan begins to fade.
This natural process is the skin’s defence system to protect against the potentially damaging effects of UV rays on the deeper layers of the skin which is called the dermis. This is where the complex matrix of collagen and elastin fibres lives, which gives your skin its strength, elasticity and suppleness. These skin cells in the dermis are constantly regenerating new cells and shedding old ones, but this process can be disrupted by UV rays.
The skin’s elasticity is reduced leaving fine lines and wrinkles, and gradually loses moisture and natural oils as the protective barrier breaks down.
As you get older, collagen and elastin production reduces as a part of natural ageing, but the sun speeds up this process. The sun is the primary cause of ageing, followed by diet, genes, and environmental pollutants. For most people, up to 90% of sun damage has already been done by the time a person reaches eighteen.

If you love the sun, make Rosehip Oil part of your daily skincare routine
The sun is important for general wellbeing and for those who like their outdoors sports, a light tan can protect you from sunburn if you’re taking care to avoid the sun at peak times.
Your skin receives nutrients both from what you eat and drink as well as what you place on the surface of your skin. Kosmea’s Certified Organic Rosehip Oil is a light oil and easily absorbed by the skin. Rosehip Oil has two key components which help the skin maintain its ability to restore, heal and rejuvenate. These are Essential Fatty Acids and Vitamin A.
With Rosehip Oil in your skincare routine, you’ll be replenishing your skin with the moisture and nutrients it needs on a daily basis.
How Rosehip Oil helps sun-damaged skin
Rosehip Oil has a neutral pH balance and anti-inflammatory properties, and protects against cell degeneration with its nutrient rich composition of essential fatty acids and vitamin A.
Essential Fatty Acids – Omega 3 and 6
Essential fatty acids – Omega 3 and 6 – are important in the regeneration of the collagen and elastin fibres that keep skin firm and youthful. These essential fatty acids and vitamins are readily absorbed by the skin and help to slow the breakdown of these fibres.
Vitamin A has proven and effective properties in healing, restoring and rejuvenating the skin.
Research shows that retinol stimulates collagen production. The liver converts Vitamin A to retinol and our skin is a retinoid-responsive organ which means it readily absorbs vitamin A when applied topically.
Kosmea’s Certified Organic Rosehip Oil has the highest level of Vitamin A of all rosehip oils on the market. The delicate extraction process which we use during manufacturing maintains the integrity of Vitamin A and the powerful healing components of the oil.
