O'Naturalis : Blog article The benefits of rosehip oil for skin and beauty

The secret of natural beauty lies in the use of pure, effective ingredients, and rosehip oil is an excellent example of this. Native to Chile, this vegetable oil is extracted from the seeds of the wild rose Rosa rubiginosa and is rapidly gaining popularity in the natural beauty sector. Its regenerating, soothing and anti-aging properties make it a must-have for those seeking to improve the appearance and health of their skin.

Origins and extraction of rose hip oil

Rosehip oil comes mainly from Chile, where the roses grow wild in the Andes mountains. The seeds are harvested by hand and then subjected to a cold-pressing process to preserve all their precious properties. This process ensures that the oil retains its richness in essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants beneficial to the skin.

A treasure trove of benefits for the skin

The regenerating, nourishing and healing properties of rosehip oil make it a precious ally for all skin types. Here are some of its many benefits:

  1. Cell regeneration: thanks to its high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids, it promotes cell renewal and helps reduce scarring, stretch marks and pigmentation spots.
  2. Prevent skin ageing: rich in vitamin A (carotenoids) and vitamin C, it stimulates collagen production and prevents the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  3. Hydration: thanks to its composition of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, it intensely nourishes the skin and restores its moisture balance.
  4. Soothes sensitive skin: soothes redness, irritation and inflammation such as eczema or couperose.

The science behind rosehip oil’s effectiveness

Rosehip oil owes its benefits to its unique composition of essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants. Polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega-3 and omega-6) are essential for the proper functioning of the skin barrier and promote cell regeneration. Vitamin A (carotenoids), meanwhile, stimulates collagen production for firmer, more elastic skin. Finally, vitamin C protects the skin against external aggressors (sun, pollution) and prevents premature aging.

How to use rosehip oil in your skincare routine

Incorporating rosehip oil into your daily routine is simple:

  1. Pure application: apply a few drops of oil to your clean face, morning and evening, massaging gently until completely absorbed.
  2. Mixing with a day cream: add 1 to 2 drops of oil to your usual moisturizer to boost its nourishing power.
  3. Targeted care: apply the oil directly to scars, stretch marks or pigmentation spots to help them fade.

For an even more powerful treatment, you can also combine rosehip oil with other plant oils (evening primrose, sea buckthorn, argan, jojoba, olive) or essential oils (Damask rose, lavender, geranium).

Or, simpler and more effective: rely on O’Clock, the rosehip oil serum from O’Naturalis, with evening primrose oil, sea buckthorn oil and Damask rose absolute. A wonder to help fight the signs of time!

To reap the full benefits ofrosehip oil, it’s essential to choose a quality oil:

  • Opt for organic, cold-pressed oil to preserve its properties.
  • Check the source: choose oils from Chile, renowned for their superior quality.
  • Pay attention to color: a quality rosehip oil should be orange, a sign of a high concentration of carotenoids.
