With regular application, users of rosehip oil can boast a glowing, youthful complexion—with a luxurious aroma to match.

Anti-Aging Benefits of Rosehip Oil

  • Hydration: Loaded with essential fatty acids, rosehip absorbs seamlessly into the skin for deep, long-lasting hydration. Furthermore, rosehip oil is a dry oil, so it moisturizes the skin without leaving it looking greasy or shiny.
  • Wrinkle reduction: Vitamin- and antioxidant-rich rosehip oil combats wrinkles, fine lines, and other free radical damage. As cosmetic research scientist Marisa Plescia notes, “With high levels of vitamin C, rosehip seed oil can help with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, brighten skin, and help fight free-radicals in the skin.”
  • Skin elasticity: Abundant in Vitamins A and C, rosehip oil also stimulates the production of collagen, which increases skin elasticity and further combats the appearance of wrinkles. Studies show that rosehip oil is indeed an efficacious tool for increasing skin elasticity and firmness.
  • Age spot reduction: The Vitamin C in rosehip oil also helps brighten and tone the skin, thus reducing the appearance of age spots and hyperpigmentation.
