Rosehip Oil (organic/unrefined) Rosa canina seed oil is extracted from the seeds of the wild rose. Contrary to what you read on the internet and in advertising campaigns promoting the benefits of Rosehip Oil, the oil does not contain vitamin C. Rather the oil contains high levels of ‘Essential Fatty Acids’ namely: 1. Linoleic acid aka omega 6 (40-50%) and 2. Alpha-linolenic acid aka omega 3 (28-38%). From a topical skin perspective both of these substances help to supress inflammation which benefits the skin from a healing perspective. Omega 3 and 6 are also crucial nutrients that help to prevent the breakdown of the skin’s collagen matrix thereby helping to slow down the thinning of the skin during the aging process. Omega 3 & 6 when absorbed by the skin into the lower layers also show promising results related to protecting the skin from UV damage, but this does not mean that it contains reliable sun screen properties.†
