Rosehip Carrier Oil

Precautions May aggravate acne in high concentrations as linoleic acid will open pores allowing trapped sebum, dirt, and bacteria to build up on skin's surface.
Rosehip oil is a golden-red colour with anti-aging properties. It is high in vitamin C and contains trans-retinoic acid and beta-carotene (vitamin A derivatives). It acts as a tissue regenerator, helping minimize premature aging, wrinkles, and scar tissue. It has a serum-like texture that's quickly absorbed and a bit astringent.
Rosehip oil is good for dry and inflamed skin (e.g. eczema, wounds, burns, sunburns. etc.). It helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, stretch marks, scars, hyperpigmentation, and possibly the occurrence of acne due to high concentration of trans-retinoic acid and linoleic acid (omega-6), respectively.
Apply after moisturizing or use directly as a moisturizer or cleansing oil.
