Rose Hip seed oil, also known as Rosa Rubaganosa oil from Chile is considered one of the best base oils for anti-wrinkle treatment. The color of this oil is a dark orange like crimson.
Benefits of Rose Hip Seed Oil:
Rose hip is known to contain good quality vitamin C. This is a good alternative to ascorbic acid which is not a natural source of vitamin C. Vitamin C is used in many Anti-wrinkle because it aids collagen synthesis in the skin.
Rosehip oil contains 5-6% of saturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids such as linolenic and linoleic acids. These fatty acids are also known as Omega 3’s, which are important for the healthy formation of cells.
Uses of Rose Hip Seed Oil:
It is reported that tests have been carried out in Argentina hospitals on the oil’s ability to reduce scars following burns, and for treating ulcers. It has been used largely in the cosmetic trade for dry or damaged hair preparations and anti-wrinkle products.
