Rosehip seed oil, a natural remedy for healthy, better skin

11 February 2022 | Blog | 0 comments

Rosehip oil is the main ingredient in the Witlof Regenerating Oil Serum. Rosehip oil, or rosehip seed oil, is a fantastic, super-active natural remedy for skin ageing.
Rosehip seed oil reduces wrinkle formation and smooths out shallow wrinkles; it also lightens pigmentation spots, reduces scars and stretch marks, and helps the skin to look fresher overall. This has been established for prematurely aged skin, for example; due to sun damage.

Origin

Rose hips are the fruits of a rose bush (the Hedgehog), whose best specimens grow in South America (Rosa Mosqueta) or South Africa (Rosa Canina).
The Witlof Rosehip is from South Africa.

Rose hips contain enormous amounts of vitamin C, and the oils are pressed from these fruits’ seeds. The oil contains a lot of pro-vitamin A, also called beta-carotene; this is a plant-based variant, a precursor to vitamin A, which the body converts into vitamin A (and therefore cannot cause toxic amounts in the body).
How does it work?
The dozens of tiny seeds found in the fruit are pressed for the oil. When unrefined, the oil has a warm, earthy scent and orange glow. The oil also stimulates the production of elastin and collagen; for example,
a small amount is enough for your skin. Warm 2-3 drops of oil between your fingers and you can rub your entire face and cleavage with it. It works best if you let it soak in for a while on clean skin (after the Cleansing Mousse, Smoothing Peel and Balancing Toner) so that it is absorbed to the maximum. Then use the Nourishing Facial Cream to hold the oil and let it take effect. Do this every morning and evening and after a few weeks you will see your skin texture improve.
So do you want fresher, smoother skin without blemishes? Then try the Witlof Skincare Regenerating Oil Serum and experience the phenomenal effect of rosehip seed oil for your skin too!
