Rose Hip Seed Oil

Rose hip oil is one of those obscure oils that isn't being used as much as it has been in the past. However, a number of studies have shown that rose hip seed oil can be very effective for a range of applications, from skincare to treating wounds and burns. One of the big reasons why people try rose hip seed oil is for its skincare benefits. The rosehip seed oil contains essential fatty acids (EFAs), which are good for moisturising and lubricating the skin. EFAs can improve moisture levels, make it easier to retain water in the skin, and help maintain the oil's barrier function. Rosehip seed oil is also rich in antioxidants, which can further boost the health of your skin. Antioxidants work to combat oxidative stress, which damages cells and makes them more susceptible to damage from UV radiation. The antioxidants in rosehip seed oil may also protect against free radical damage. Free radicals are the cause of other problems, like premature ageing and acne. Another area where rosehip seed oil excels is as a wound care product. Studies have shown that it can improve the healing process for wounds. Rosehip seed oil was also able to reduce the size of wounds, especially when paired with Centella Asiatica extract. Another study showed rosehip seed oil reduced scarring from acne and surgical wounds. The reduction in scarring was attributed to the fatty acids, antioxidants, and skin regenerating ability of rosehip seed oil. Acne patients can also benefit from using rosehip seed oil. A review of the research on rosehip seed oil showed that it could be used directly on acne lesions .
