What a lovely carrier oil! Rosehip Oil contains a high amount of vitamin E, vitamin A and essential fatty acids which promotes collagen and elastin levels to increase and assists with cell regeneration. "Extra Virgin" means that the oil is of the highest quality and is produced as a result a single, simple pressing. It is a key ingredient in creams, lotions, massage oil, face oil, and body oils. Rosehip Oil has a fairly short shelf life of 6-9 months and refrigeration after opening is highly recommended.
Directions: Rosehip carrier oil is excellent for dry, irritated, or weathered skin. At 100% strength, combined with Helichrysum italicum essential oil at 5% dilution, it is useful in reducing the appearance of scars. In other products, such as a moisturizer or in lotions or balms, it is best added at a concentration of 5-10%. This is due to its bright orange-red color which may discolor those blends.
