Rosehip Oil – Rosa Rubiginosa
Rosehip oil is generally extracted from the seeds of a rose bush. Extensive clinical work overseas claim that the oil is extremely beneficial in tissue regeneration for conditions such as facial wrinkles, treatment of scars and even burns. Wonderful for reducing the signs of wrinkles and premature aging.. Noticeably effective on crows feet around the eye and mouth area.
Rosehip oil is high in Linolenic and Linoleic fatty acids. It is believed that this is the reason for reducing the formation of keloid scar tissue and reducing the redness of hyper pigmentation.
