Reviews
The Pre-dissolved solution is excellent. Ferulic Acid is an amazing skincare ingredient (potent antioxidant, protects other sensitive antioxidants from light degradation, UV protection) but is absolutely ineffective if it isn't solubilized correctly. Makes adding to any Serum Base or w/o emulsion easy. Love using it (at 6%; so active 0.5%) with the Resveratrol Fluid (10%; active 1%) and Green Tea Extr for potent nighttime brightening treatment... ...»

Buy Rosehip Oil Organic For Skin Care

Oil extracted from the fruit of rose plants [known as rosehips] contains compounds with many therapeutic uses. Rosehip oil is high in fatty acids, including linoleic, oleic, and alpha-linolenic acids. Fatty acids are known to moisturize and restore skin barrier function. The oil also contains trans-retinoic acid, a precursor of vitamin A, which is known to help restore skin tissue. The oil is widely known to reduce the appearance of scars by reducing their profile, decreasing hyperpigmentation, and increasing skin elasticity. It can also reduce the effects of premature aging and sun damage. Rosehip oil has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties.

Key benefits of Rosehip oil in skin care:

  • Anti-inflammatory [1, 2, 6, 10, 11]
  • Scar care [3, 4, 5, 9, 14]
  • Restore barrier function [3, 4]
  • Sun damage repair [4, 5]
  • Treat hyperpigmentation [5, 9]
  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles [5]
  • Wrinkle relaxer [5]
  • Increase skin elasticity [5]
  • stimulate collagen production [10][14]
  • Moisturizing and hydration [4]
BulkActives' oils are cold pressed, without the use of solvents or chemicals.

Rosehip Oil Organic

Organic Rosehip oil in DIY Skin Care

rosehip oil skin careRose plants [from the genus Rosa] contain 150 species in Europe, Asia, and North America [8]. Rosehips are the pseudo fruit of rose plants. They are used in traditional cultures as a tea or vitamin supplement [8]. Rosehips are known for having high amounts of vitamin C [1]. Rosehip extract has been shown to have antioxidant properties, attributed most often to vitamin C content [8, 11]. However, the therapeutic properties of oil extracted from rosehips have also been explored.

Rosehips are 6.5-12.9% oil [7]. The highest amounts of oil [>10%] are found in R. canina, R. dumalis, and R. subcanina variations [7]. The oil from rosehips contains no vitamin C, as vitamin C is soluble in water and not oil.

The oil is about 70% unsaturated fatty acids [3, 7]. Fatty acids are known to smooth the skin, repair damaged tissue, and overall revitalize the skin [4]. They are highly moisturizing and protect the outer barrier of the skin from damage [4]. Rose hip oil contains high amounts of linoleic [omega-6], oleic [omega-9], and alpha-linolenic [omega-3] fatty acids [11]. It also contains gamma-linolenic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid, which is known to have anti-inflammatory effects [4]. Rosehip oil has a significant amount of trans-retinoic acid, a precursor of vitamin A [3][14] Trans-retinoic acid is known to aid in restoring and rebuilding tissue [3]. This component also adds to the stability of the oil [2].

Linoleic and alpha-linolenic acids from rose hips were shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. Fatty acids inhibit the arachidonic acid pathway. Arachidonic acid is made into prostaglandins, inflammation mediators [11]. Both linoleic and alpha-linolenic acids were shown, in vitro [outside the body], to inhibit the enzyme COX-2 that is responsible for converting arachidonic acid into prostaglandins [6, 11]. Also, rosehip extract has been shown to inhibit certain inflammatory mediators involved in inflammation in vitro [10]. These inflammatory mediators decrease the production of collagen, thus rose hip oil may help increase collagen production and protect existing collagen from damage. In a clinical study, rosehip seed oil shows promise for inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema, ulcers, and cheilitis [lip inflammation] [1].

Rosehip oil is known to improve the appearance of scars. In clinical studies, rosehip oil reduces the appearance of surgical scars [4, 5]. In this study, skin elasticity and smoothness improved. A surgeon with experience treating scars reported rosehip oil reduced tension in radiation scars [5]. Another surgeon noted rosehip oil’s usefulness for treating burn scars [5]. Rosehip oil was shown to reduce redness and hyper-pigmentation in scars and loosen fibrous cords associated with scaring [9]. Researchers attribute this scar-reducing effect to the presence of trans-retinoic acid [5].
In addition to helping reduce scar appearance, rosehip oil has other therapeutic effects. A cream containing rose hip oil was shown to reduce the signs of premature skin aging [5]. Rosehip oil reduces the appearance of photoaging, chronic damage to the skin due to excessive sun exposure [4, 5].  It decreased surface wrinkles in patients with photoaging and increased skin elasticity [5]. Rosehip oil also has anti-microbial effects. In an in vitro study, rosehip seed oil killed yeast [1].

NOTES:
  • The oil should have a distinct odor but not a sweet rose fragrance. If you smell roses, the manufacturer added fragrance, and the oil probably is not genuine rose hip oil.

  • 5

    Place some of the oil on a white surface and look at the color. Rose hip oil is naturally a reddish hue, although a cold-pressed oil can be strained or refined into a clear oil. If the oil has a reddish color, it is more likely to be cold-pressed.
