Loved by royalty, models and celebrities alike, Rosehip oil has some amazing benefits to the skin. But what exactly is Rosehip oil and what makes it such a great skin treatment? Read on for ultimate low-down on this skincare savior.

The History of Rosehip

Rosehip Oil is a fruit oil extracted from the seeds of the Rosehip, an amber berry-like fruit that grows wild on Rosehip bushes and is left behind after the rose has flowered and dropped its petals and it has been used historically for millennia. The origins of Rosehip in skin care are vague, but we know from burial sites and hieroglyphics that ancient Egyptians used plant-based oils such as Rosehip on their skin. Rosehip oil was also used by the Mayans and Native Americans because of its healing properties. Cleopatra used Rosehip oil and Castor oil, and she was renowned for her regal beauty. It also has been noted that Kate Middleton uses Rosehip oil every day on her skin.

It regenerates the skin

A 1983 study at the University of Santiago showed Rosehip Seed Oil could regenerate skin, minimize scars and wrinkles and help to even out the skin’s color and tone. Research shows that the use of Rosehip oil makes the skin feel more hydrated, it improves blemishes, and gives the skin a smoother complexion. It’s no wonder that Rosehips have been so popular for so long! Here are some of the elements contained in Rosehip oil:

Vitamin E – is known to calm and hydrate dry and sensitive skin. Essential fatty acids omega 3, 6 and 9 – is known to aid in repair and skin cell regeneration. Vitamin C – is known for its skin brightening properties and can help improve the appearance of pigmentation and restore skin's tone
