How Rosehip Oil helps your skin

Firstly, let’s look the very important role your skin plays in keeping you healthy.

    • Protects you from UV rays
    • Maintains the fluid balance your body (hydration)
    • Regulates your body temperature
    • Protects you from infections and allergic reactions
    • Informs you of heat, cold or danger

The benefits of Rosehip Oil

Healthy skin has a strong network of collagen and elastin fibres making the skin more resilient and supple. Environmental factors such as sun damage and pollution cause this network of collagen to break down and the elastin molecules to reduce in number, causing the skin to lose its suppleness and youthful glow.


Rosehip Oil is not only rich in nutrients that help to restore and regenerate the skin cells, but it’s also a fine oil which is easily absorbed and therefore able to penetrate the deeper layers of your skin to work its magic.

  • Essential fatty acids are needed to repair damaged skin tissue and regenerate skin cells. Kosmea’s Certified Organic Rosehip Oil is guaranteed to contain a minimum of 80% essential fatty acids.
  • Rosehip Oil is rich in vitamin A (trans-retinoic acid). The latest research shows that trans-retinoic acid can help prevent premature ageing caused by sun exposure and the ageing process.
  • Antioxidants help to protect and repair skin from the effects of stress, pollution, dehydration and other environmental factors that lead to premature ageing.
  • The anti-inflammatory properties in Rosehip Oil when applied to wounds that are still healing, or to new and old scars, will help to improve them in both colour and texture.
