One of the favourite skin oils among beauty insiders, Rosehip oil is often used to revitalise skin and boost radiance. Extracted from the seeds of one of these following rose plants, Rosa Rubiginosa, Rosa Moschata or Rosa Canina; it is also known as Rosehip seed oil.
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.
Rosehip Oil Reduces The Signs of Ageing
An eight week clinical study involving 34 people, aged 35 to 65 years, showed that Rosehip improved the appearance of ageing skin by reducing fine lines and wrinkles on the crow's feet area while also improved skin hydration and elasticity.
In addition to a small trace of Tretinoin (around 0.0357%), Rosehip oil is very rich in Beta-Carotene, the powerful antioxidant known as pro-vitamin A. Beta-Carotene helps protect skin against UV-induced and other environmental damage. This popular plant oil also contains Omega 3 6 7 9 fatty acids that help strengthen skin barrier function.
Due to its smoothing and hydrating properties, Rosehip oil is one of the popular skincare ingredients. It is one of the key ingredients in Nano Gold Nourishing Cream, a nourishing moisturiser to plump up the appearance of skin and reduce the signs of ageing such as wrinkles, fine lines and dryness.
