Rosehip Oil, Tretinoin and Beta-Carotene
Rosehip oil is rich in pro-vitamin A complex (Carotenoids), particularly Beta-Carotene. It also contains a small trace of trans-retinoic acid (Tretinoin), a more potent form of vitamin A than Retinol. However, contrary to a popular belief, it doesn't contain Retinol or Vitamin C. Although the fruit contains vitamin C, this water-soluble vitamin is not naturally present in the oil.
Rosehip oil is rich in omega 3 (Linolenic Acid) and omega 6 (Linoleic Acid) essential fatty acids that help strengthen natural lipids barrier, protecting your skin from the environmental stress and damage.
