ANTI-AGING - ANTIOXIDANT - EASILY ABSORBED - ANTI-INFLAMMATORY
Rosehip oil is rich in vitamin A, known as trans-retinoic acid which helps to prevent premature ageing caused by sun exposure. When skin is exposed to the sun, it can increase levels of enzymes that lead to the breakdown of collagen and elastin. Rosehip oil can help combat this.
Antioxidants are micronutrients that protect tissues in the body and rosehip is rich in antioxidants including beta-carotene and lycopene. These help to protect and repair skin from premature ageing caused by modern living.
Ageing causes skin collagen fibres to fragment or break down. Essential fatty acids play a key role in the maintenance and regeneration of the collagen and elastin fibres that keep skin firm and youthful. The essential fatty acids and vitamins in rosehip oil are readily absorbed by the skin. With its neutral pH balance and anti- inflammatory properties, rose hip oil keeps skin balanced and healthy, helping to protect against cell degeneration caused by bacteria and oxidants.
The Vitamin A found in rosehip oil also helps to improving the skins moisture level as well as reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The essential fatty acids and vitamins in rosehip oil help to keep damaged skin hydrated. These fatty acids, known as emollients improve the permeability and flexibility of the skin. The Vitamin A here can also contribute to scar healing and skin regeneration as Vitamin A has been known to play a role in enhancing the skin’s tone and texture.
