Rosehip (Rosa canina) oil is well known and contains trans-retinoic acid which is unique and may be the constituent that is so effective on the skin. Rosehip oil can be combined with macadamia oil for stability and even better hydration in body and facial care products.
Aura Cacia Rosehip Oil comes from Chile. Though native to Europe, Rosa canina was introduced to Chile in the 1800s and rapidly naturalized in the southern Andes. It now grows throughout the region and has been harvested there for 100 years.
The harvest season is relatively short but intense. A special tool and protective clothing are used for harvesting the hips from the thorny bushes. Harvested hips are dried, then the seeds are separated and ground up before being cold-pressed into the beautifully colored rosehip oil.
What's the difference between organic rosehip oil and conventional rosehip oil? Organic oils differ from conventional oils in that the botanicals from which they are derived are grown according to the USDA's Organic Standards. Aura Cacia's manufacturing facility and all of their organic oils have also been certified organic by the established third-party certifier, Quality Assurance International (QAI).
Product Features:• Rosehip oil contains Vitamin A and Vitamin C, a variety of fatty acids, and is dominated by both linoleic and linolenic acids.
• Rosehip oxidizes faster than other carrier oils, so Aura Cacia does identify on the label some added Vitamin E to help with stability. Refrigeration and limited exposure to air will help preserve this product in order to maximize its use.
Unfortunately it expired in 2019 and was rancid when I opened it
I received this on Feb. 24th. It is a wonderful oil. My skin is smoother and more "plump" looking. I'll be 67 in April and knew my skin needed something more moisturizing. I have very sensitive skin to so many things and this has given me NO problems at all after using it for 12 days morning and night so I know it's safe for my skin. It basically has no scent. It absorbs nicely and leaves my skin very dewy looking. My skin's texture is definitely changing to a "younger" looking skin. I will continue buying this. This will last quite awhile as you only need a few drops for your neck and face. Very happy with this product
I've been using this oil for a few weeks now as part of my night-time regimen. And I have to say, my face feels softer and looks a lot more luminous, which is a plus, plus at any stage of life. I cant wait to see what the results will be at the 3-month and 6-month mark. I highly recommend and will be reordering
super swag i have super dry super sensitive skin and after like a day of using this there's already such a huge difference uhh when i opened the package it was a little leaky but honestly you cant really blame anyone for that 11/10
I will be reordering for sure. Soaks into skin after ten min or so and then put skin cream on after. Has a nicer scent which is almost hard to detect but smells good. I feel better about natural oils than the expensive creams that cause allergies with my skin
