- A sensation of burning or stinging in the face
- Small lumps under the skin
- Swollen cheeks or nose

How does Vitamin A help Rosacea?
itamin A boosts the skin’s resilience and quality, repairs damaged skin tissue, balances and retains moisture in the skin. It is also effective in improving the appearance of old scars. The higher the Vitamin A content, the better.
The Vitamin A in Rosehip Oil produces retinol which stimulates collagen production. There are many Rosehip Oils on the market today, but none have the high levels of Vitamin A that you will find in Kosmea’s Rosehip Oil. Kosmea’s supercritical extraction process retains the integrity and high levels of Vitamin A.
How do Essential Fatty Acids, Omega 3 and 6 help Rosacea?
Essential fatty acids are responsible for repairing damaged skin and reducing inflammation. Since our body cannot produce Omega 3 and 6, we rely on external sources to maintain the right level of these essential fatty acids. Rosehip Oil is a natural and gentle oil on the skin with high levels of both Omega 3 and 6 required for healthy skin.
With a pH balance of 5.1 which is similar to the natural oil produced by our skin, Rosehip Oil is easily absorbed. The anti-inflammatory properties of Rose Hip Oil help reduce inflammation and soothe swollen capillaries and pustules.
