ROSEHIP SEED OIL
Roses are a universal symbol of romance, love and beauty. It is probably one of the original plants ever to have been used for cosmetic preparations. Pomades and potpourris with rose petals as their essential ingredient, as well as rosewater, and rose oil all bear witness to a long history of cosmetic use, which probably originated in the Middle East.
Rosehip oil is a light, gently astringent oil with excellent nourishing, moisturising and toning qualities that are largely due to its high essential fatty acid content (80%). Rosehip oil makes a great addition to facial blends and lotions intended to nourish the tender tissue around the eyes and to maintain excellent skin tone. Excellent for use in 'after sun care' lotions, and on burnt tissue and scars.
