Rosehip Oil for the Skin – 6 benefits for anti-ageing, blemishes, scarring & more

Posted February 25, 2022

Good daily habits are worth developing for your health and wellbeing.

And by adding Rosehip Oil to your daily skincare regime, you’re investing in your skin’s quality, tone and resilience over the long term.

Rich in essential vitamins and minerals, Kosmea’s Certified Organic Rosehip Oil is a fine oil that is easily absorbed by the skin without leaving behind an oily residue.

Over the 28 years that we’ve been bottling the purest Rosehip Oil on the market, we’ve seen many improvements for various skin conditions. Read on to find out how Rosehip Oil can help your skin when used daily.


1. Rosehip Oil has anti-ageing properties

Rosehip Oil is rich in Vitamin A or trans-retinoic acid which stimulates collagen production and science has shown that the skin readily absorbs vitamin A when applied topically.

Kosmea’s Rosehip Oil has 10X more vitamin A than any other Rosehip Oil in the market so your skin will receive the full range of benefits that vitamin A provides.

“I am just writing to let you know that the Rosehip Oil is the most moisturising face treatment I have ever used combined with the Replenishing Moisture Cream – I have never had my skin glowing with moisture before and can’t wait to try the 8th Natural Wonder Serum (I’m not sure if I need it now though!!!). P.S. This is the first time I have ever been happy enough with anything to bother writing a testimonial – it is also nice to know that the oil is free of chemicals – I’m not sure that some of the face creams on the market should really be used on humans at all – the ingredient list can be scary. Thank-you for a great product.”

2. Rosehip Oil helps reduce the impact of sun damage

Sun exposure is the most common reason for premature ageing. Up to 90% of sun damage has already been done by the time a person reaches eighteen years of age. The sun is important for vitamin D production which maintains bone density among other benefits. But too much sun has long term effects on your skin.

Rosehip Oil helps to reduce the impact of sun damage. It has a neutral pH balance and anti-inflammatory properties, and essential fatty acids help the regeneration of collagen and elastin fibres to 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.

3. Rosehip Oil evens out skin tone and blemishes

Rosehip is a natural source of vitamin C, an antioxidant which encourages skin cell regeneration to even the skin tone and irregular pigmentation. Vitamin C also boosts collagen and elastin production to restore freshness and vitality to your skin.

“Rosehip oil very soothing and keeps even tone of skin – wonderful product.”

4. Rosehip Oil reduces the appearance of scars

The nutrients in Rosehip Oil promote new skin growth and regeneration which help to reduce or prevent both new and old scars that have been caused by acne, burns, trauma, or stretch marks.

For wounds that are healing, daily application helps keep the damaged skin hydrated as it heals. This prevents tearing the skin in the surrounding area which leads to scarring. The sooner you use Rosehip Oil on a wound, the less risk of a scar developing.

5. Rosehip Oil soothes acne inflammation

Although this may sound like a contradiction, stripping the oils from your skin makes acne worse. If the skin’s oil production system is already out of balance with the over-stimulation of the sebaceous glands, scrubbing the skin to remove the oil will only exacerbate the problem.

The high levels of vitamin A in Rosehip Oil balance the production of sebum in your skin, while essential fatty acids reduce redness, sensitivity and inflammation.

6. Rosehip Oil soothes and calms eczema and dermatitis

Safe for both adults and babies’ skin, Rosehip Oil provides relief from the symptoms of eczema and dermatitis. Eczema and dermatitis occur in skin that is low in essential fatty acids and dehydrated. In normal skin, the skin barrier keeps moisture locked but in skin with eczema, this is compromised. This leads to dry, flaking and scaly skin.

Rosehip Oil helps the skin barrier improve and keep moisture locked in. It also stimulates collagen production to renew skin cells and strengthens the quality of your skin.

“Used Kosmea products on both my babies, and was recently looking for something to combat persistent eczema around my (now 5 year-old) daughter’s mouth………..after weeks of trying other natural products (some of which have worked in the past), the oil showed results within days. It is so replenishing, soothing and healing. Thank you!” Amanda.
