Rose Hip Oil

Posted on: February 4, 2011


Rose Hip Oil

Botanical Name: Rosa mosqueta
Aroma: Mild and Slightly Earthy.
Viscosity: Light.
Absorption/Feel: Rose Hip Oil Leaves a Hint of Oil on the Skin.
Color: Virtually Clear.
Shelf Life: 6-12 Months.
Notes: Rose Hip Oil is rich in essential fatty acids, namely alpha linolenic acid, and is said to be excellent in treating many skin conditions. It is expensive and is usually blended in a small (often 10%) dilution with other carrier oils. Despite rose hips being a natural source of the antioxidant Vitamin C (a water soluble vitamin) and Vitamin E (fat soluble), the oil itself goes rancid rather quickly.
