Price is for ONE 2.2 oz (60ml) bottle Virgin 100% Certified Organic Cold Pressed, Unrefined ROSEHIP Concentrate Oil.
We carry 2 different types of Organci Rosehip Seed Oil. This one is the Dark Red Orange color which means it has a high content of cartenoids (vitamin a), It tends to be a little bit thicker than the lighter golden orange rosehip oil and you can see it on your skin when you put it on but I have found I use less of this rosehip concentrate and massage it in and it absorbs completely. This darker red orange rosehip oil concentrate also costs a little more because it is more concentrated. Our Rosehip Oil Concentrate is very tis very nourishing! A little goes along ways! Best Rosehip oil out there!
This Rosehip Oil is wild crafted and considered vegan because no animal products are used in producing, it is cruelty free meaning non animal tested, non gmo (meaning it is not genetically modified), non irradiated (no radiation). Best Rosehip oil out there! Please note that rosehip oil does not smell like roses but has a distinct earthy smell that can vary from one batch to the other because it is a natural product and not scented with chemicals to cover up the smell. Some people love the smell while others do not. It is a matter of personal preference. I personally use this everyday and when I first tried it years ago did not care for the smell but have come to love it, especially when I look in the mirror see the great results!

Rose hips were brought to the New World by Spanish invaders where they took root and thrived. Rose hip oil (also known as rosa mosqueta) is a wine colored oil from the ripened fruit and seeds of the Rose Hip. It is extremely high in essential fatty acids and now has much respect among professional skin care journals and organizations. It has a high vitamin content and is a natural source of VITAMIN A, and it has a high content of Vitamin C the active ingredient in Dr Perricones wrinkle treatment system and many other skin care programs. It also contains high amounts of vitamin e and essential fatty acids, and antioxidants such as lycopene which help form the building blocks of healthy skin.
Rosehip oil is an effective treatment for dry, weathered or dehydrated skin. It softens and minimizes scars and is the predominant natural oil used for treating wrinkles and aging. It can be used in all fine skin care recipes, or applied directly to the skin on its own with great success for any aging skin complaints.
Considering the irritation direct application of retinoic acid to the skin can cause, (rosehip seed oil does not actually turn into retinoic acid until after it is absorbed and your skin decides it needs some and converts it) and the fact that being unpatented, it is cheaper.
There is more data on rose hips as an anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, wound healing agent and in arthritis treatment. An interesting effect I noticed with rosehip seed oil was its ability to shrink pores. I was told nothing but microdermabrasion could do that, but I noticed Retinol did it and so does rosehip seed oil. The thing all three treatments have in common is the ability to peel of the top surface of the skin so the skin is forced to renew itself. Naturally that would appear to shrink pores considerably. Certainly I consider rosehip seed oil the treatment of choice for enlarged pores.
Rosehip oil reduces wrinkles and signs of premature aging. Helps to counter the drying effects of the sun which are usually first noticed in fine wrinkle lines or "crows feet" around the eyes and mouth. Evens tone and smoothes roughness. A natural moisturizer for dry, sensitive, allergic, sun damaged, problem skin conditions and daily skin care. Improves surgical and accidental scars, restores normal skin color (reduces redness or hyper pigmentation). It also avoids the formation of the keloid type of scar (lump) which may appear after surgical procedures and helps to make less apparent old scars left by acne or chickenpox. Provides excellent results in the treatment on burned skin or on skin that has been exposed to radiotherapy.
RoseHip Oil also has a high content of unsaturated essential fatty acids, namely oleic (15-20%), linoleic (44-50%) and linolenic (30-35%). They are called " essential " because our body is not able to reproduce them, and because they help to nourish and maintain a healthy skin. It is a superb tissue hydrator with a high absorbing level, penetrating dry skin almost instantly to restore a much needed moisture balance frequently lost by climatic and environmental conditions such as dryness and air toxicity.
Ask users of topical Organic Rosehip oil why they are such loyal fans and you a dozen different answers. One swears by it to treat eczema and psoriasis while another uses in place of a night cream to smooth her wrinkles. I have read in various magazines that Rosehip Oil is the best natural "anti-ager".
One customer uses it for her son's occassional diaper rash and another has used it to sooth a sunburn and another has used it for treating acne.
It is a multi-tasker where it comes to skin care! It will help to heal woulds, moisturzie skin, treat rashes, sunburns and minimze scarring!
Because Rosehip Oil so effective at bringing skin into balance, it's equally loved by those with severely dry skin as well as those with raging oily skin and uneven skin tone and pigmentation.
Instructions for Use: Massage 3 or 4 drop of Roship oil into clean damp skin or the affected area with your fingertips until it is completely absorbed. If you use it during the day you must place a sunblocker on top. Rose Hip Oil applied twice a day every day for about three months reduces scar tissues, helps to prevent and reduce stretch marks, attenuates wrinkles & age spots. Anti-inflammatory, improves burned skin. Aids in the treatment of dermatitis that results from radiotherapy. Excellent to prevent photo aging and immediately relieve dry skin and eczema. Rose Hip Oil can also be used on the hair and scalp for a hot oil conditioning treatment. It will improve the health and texture of the hair and help any scalp problems.
Our Rosehip oil is extracted using the cold press method. Cold Pressed is where heat is minimized throughout the rosehip seed oil extraction. This helps the oil maintain its original state, constituents, and depth. Although not a practical method of extraction for all oils on the market it is highly regarded as the extraction method of choice.
Shelf life - 12-18 months Because of its delicate nature and the cold pressed method of extraction, your rosehip seed oil should be kept in a cool place out of sun.
In my research on Rosehip Oil in skin care I found this. It was published in 1988. "Contributions to Identification and Application of Active Components Contained in Rosa Aff. Rubiginosa." by Dr B Pareja, and Dr Horst Kehl. "Aged Skin (Photo-ageing) Changes produced on skin by the action of the sun, i.e. photoageing, are very common in all countries of warm climate. For this study, 20 women with surface wrinkles, brown spots on the eyelids and intensely tanned skin, aged between 25 and 35, who usually spend 3 months of summer in resorts by the beach, were assessed. All applied rose hip oil on the face for four months. Significant changes were noted, starting during the third week. Firstly, surface wrinkles started to disappear, spots started to fade until, by the end of the last month, the disappearance was almost complete." You would think, seeing as the wrinkles and age spots almost completely disappeared, we should be hearing about this miraculous substance all the time! Perhaps because when you can sell Renova for twenty times the price they do not want this secret out! Truly this is a awesome oil! Take care of your skin and try this to fight against aging skin. Try it for 3 or 4 months and watch the results unfold! You won’t want to stop using it! I would like to add that all natural carrier oils have some type of scent to them when the oil is natural cold pressed and unrefined and that scent can vary from batch to batch and of course oil to oil since it comes from a natural product. The color also can vary. If it doesn't have much of a smell, it is probably refined or partially refined (deodorized), or if it is unrefined, may just have a low scent due to natural variation (since it is a natural product). I have bought oils from a few differnt companies and all unrefined cold pressed oil have a distinct scent different for each oil and each batch. Rest assured that any of the oils I sell are fresh, cold pressed and unrefined so you get all the vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, etc.... all the good naturally occuring nutrients that are so good for your skin!

We are in the process of changing our label look so you might get the new label. Still the same wonderful product just a different label. :)
Note, Unrefined Rose Hip Oil, due to its high carotenoids content, has the potential to stain skin and linens or washcloths if used in plain or high percentages in a formulation. Take this into consideration when using or formulating. But unrefined rosehip oil is what you want for all the nutrient content for ones skin!. Thanks!.
