Rosehip CO2 extract Organic
Rosehip CO2 extract is high in essential fatty acids, including the naturally occurring form of Vitamin A (retinoic acid). Rosehip oil is one of the best oils to use for mature skin and scars. It can protect the skin and increases cell turnover. Rosehip CO2 extract contains Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, B-carotene and Vitamin A and which are all antioxidants that help fight free radicals. Rosehip oil’s healing properties are due to its chemical structure. It is rich in essential fatty acids, but more specifically oleic, palmitic, linoleic and gamma linolenic acid (GLA). Rosehip oil contains polyunsaturated fatty acids (vitamin F), also known as an essential fatty acid (EFA), and when absorbed through the skin, these fatty acids convert to prostaglandins (PGE), which are involved in cellular membrane and tissue regeneration. The mature skin benefit comes from its high antioxidants and the oil’s ability to penetrate into deeper layers of the skin. The Vitamin C and Vitamin A, in particular, stimulate collagen production. Essential fatty acids are emollients, which improve the skin’s flexibility and permeability and help the skin repair itself. The vitamin A can play a role here as well since it has the ability to improve skin texture and tone. Also, these essential fatty acids can aid in reducing dry scalp and itchiness.
