Organic Rosehip Seed Oil


What does this mean?

Inci:Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Tocopherol, Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil

Contains naturally occurring Retinoic Acid (Vitamin A) which is excellent for skin care.


A clear, yellow oil with a faint smell that ispressed from the fruit / hips of the wild rose bush.
This is 99.5% Rosehip Fruit Oil and we have added 0.35% Vitamin E as a powerful antioxidant to keep the oil from oxidising. That Vitamin E is suspended in 0.15% Sunflower Seed Oil to make it pourable. Without this added antioxidant, the oil would have a shelf life of only a few months before it goes rancid. We add the antioxidant to ensure the quality and therapeutic action for longer. It is best to store this oil in the fridge.
The oil can be naturally quite strong smelling. This oil has been deodorised using a process that has been approved by The Soil Association which involves a shot of steam whilst the oil is in a vacuum. It is then passed through activated charcoal. This effectively reduces the aroma of the oil and improves the colour without affecting the therapeutic qualities of the oil and still keeping it’s organic status.
  • Use 1% to 100%. Although safe to use neat on the skin, the high level of Omega 3 can make the oil feel tight on the skin. We feel the oil is much more elegant when blended with other oils.
  • Oil soluble so cannot be used in water only products. It can be used in small amounts in water based gels that will hold it in suspension.
  • Not heat stable so should be used in Stage 3 (cool stage) when making creams and lotions.
Rosehip Seed Oil blends very well with other oils that have a much fattier or greasy feel to them like Shea Butter. The dryness of the Rosehip Seed Oil makes the combination feel very elegant.
For sensitive skin, blend it with Peach Kernel Oil or Apricot Kernel Oil.

Skin Care
  • Rosehip Seed Oil has a light and non greasy texture that feels quite dry. It sinks into the skin rapidly without leaving any greasy after feel. It is excellent to moisturise dry and damaged skin improving the appearance of the skin.
  • It helps to give a more even skin tone.
  • A great oil to use for acne prone skin as it has such a light texture.
  • Rosehip Seed Oil contains a natural form of Vitamin A which is a powerful antioxidant. Combined with the high Omega 3 content, this oil is superb for helping to smooth the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles especially on mature skin.
  • As it has a short surface time on the skin, it is excellent for use under makeup.
  • Rosehip Seed Oil helps to even the skin tone to promote an even glow.
  • It has an excellent, balanced ratio of Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9. This makes it ideal to use in oil blends for all skin types and very simple to use in gel formulations where less of an oil can be included therefore using a good, balanced oil is ideal.
  • In anti aging skincare products, Rosehip Seed Oil keeps the skin soft, supple and radiant which can help to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Hair Care
  • Rosehip Seed Oil tones and corrects an oily scalp. It will also improve the resilience of a sensitive scalp.
  • The hair shaft will be moisturised without feeling greasy or heavy.

I recommend this product

using it daily

using it on my face in the evening before bed, completely natural with no nasty parabens, perfume or other toxic chemicals. It has evened out my complexion to such an extent that I have stopped using foundation (my age is 49). Obviously the results will vary from individual to individual and many skin issues arise from diet, dehydration, imbalances and other factors, but my overall experience of this product is very good & I will purchase again.
