Presentation, properties and advice
Regenerates cells, promotes the synthesis of collagen and the suppleness and elasticity of the epidermis, which reduces scarring. rosehip oil actively assists cell regeneration, achieving good results in maintaining skin texture and freshness, the prevention of ageing, and the attenuation of scars and blemishes.
Its high level of linoleic and linolenic essential fatty acids is essential for the synthesis of prostaglandins, for building cell membranes, for defence mechanisms, for growth, and in the physiological and biological processes of cell regeneration (scars, skin burns, premature ageing).
This oil is used in dermatology (scars, burns) and cosmetology (to protect against ageing, to moisturise, and to reduce stretchmarks, etc.).
Rosehip is a shrub of the Rosaceae family. It grows to an average height of 3.5 metres, and its climbing, particularly thorny branches can reach 10 metres long. It looks similar to a wild (or dog) rose, grows naturally on the American continent and is widely cultivated in Chile.
It gives musk roses with single, white or pink flowers which culminate in fruits that are extremely rich in vitamin V. After pollinisation, the "fruit" (in fact a fake fruit called a rosehip) develops, acquiring an egg-like shape. Initially green, it turns yellow, orange and then red when mature.
