Move over coconut oil — there’s a new skin care oil in town, and it’s ready to take your place as the superhero of natural oils for the skin!
Rosehip Seed Oil has been touted as one of the most incredible skin care discoveries to date, with celebrities across the board swearing by it as the ultimate solution to dry, dull, acne-prone skin. Well, guess what? It’s not just meant to be used on your face!
What is Rosehip Seed Oil?
Rosehip Seed Oil is derived from the rosa canina rose bush, which is grown mostly in Chile. Unlike rose oil, rosehip oil is pressed from the fruit and seeds of the rose bush. Rosehip seeds contain skin-nourishing vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids that make it a wonderful for your skin.
The healing properties associated with rosehip oil make it beneficial for all skin types and concerns. For these reasons, rosehip seed oil can commonly be found in stores.
At Roots and Bloom, we consider rosehip seed oil to almost be a “secret ingredient” when it comes to glowing, clear skin because it is surprisingly not well-known.
