Do you know HOW your Rosehip Oil is extracted?

Do you love Rosehip Oil?  No?  Then you must not have tried it!  It's just so, so good!  And we're not the only ones who love it - we're in amazing celebrity company -  Miranda Kerr, Gwenyth Paltrow and Princess Catherine; all love themeselves a it of rosehip!

Rosehips are actually the dark red fruits of roses they've havebeen used since ancient times. Mayans, Egyptians and Native-Americans discovered that besides the pleasant-smelling fragrance of the roses, these plants came with extra benefits.

What benefits?'s FULL of antioxidants, vitamins and essential fatty acids.  It boasts a huge percentage of plant-derived vitamin A, the “skin vitamin” that helps promote collagen production.  It's also rich in Vitamin B-carotene and Vitamins E and C ( 50% more than oranges!).  It's bursting with Omega 3,6 and 9 acids and lycopene too! 

So how do you use it?  What can it do for your skin?  Rosehip Oil:

  • is a great alternative to a daily moisturiser
  • is scientifically proven to reduce scarring
  • reduces redness associated with facial rosacea
  • improves appearance of psoriasis scars
  • improves the skin of Acne sufferers
  • can reduce wrinkles, crow's feet and fine lines
  • is a great treatment for chronically dry skin
  • is an excellent after sun treatmen

And we bet our members have so many more ways to put it to use!

We're looking for twenty reviewers to put A'Kin's Rosehip Oil with Vitamin C to the test.   This is perfect for post-summer care and taking care of evening pigmentation issues and rehydrating thirsty skin.  

But the really cool thing that sets this Rosehip Oil apart from others on the market? It's the extraction process.  See most other Rosehip Oils on the market are cold pressed; the oil is extracted slowly, at low heat.  Or refined - the oil is extracted at a high temperature, which destroys a lot of the goodness.  This is the common method for cheaper oils on the market.

A'Kin's Rosehip Oil uses the Co2 method - which is free from heat and oxygen, leaving you with a more pure and potent product that's more stable.  Did you know the average Rosehip is only good for around 18 months?  A'Kin's will stay fresh for TWICE as long once open - remaining just as potent and pure!

Sounds like the best of the best right?  Well we need you to tell us, so why not get chatting to us about all things 'hippy - have you used Rosehip Oil before?  If you have what did you use it for and what results did you get?  If you haven't used it before - what issue would you use it to target?  How important is the extraction method of oils to you?

I would love to try rosehip! My mum uses it and she loves it - plus her skin looks great. I'd love to find a product that evens out my skintone. I'm also stuck indoors all day due to my job so something that keeps my skin refreshed looking is an added bonus!

Yes I am, I have been a fan of using oils for skincare for many years and have loved how rosehip oil can be used not just for the facial area but for all over the body and hair. It is great for helping soothe stressed out areas as well as keeping it all looking youthful

I would love to try this product, I've got lots of acne scaring from my teenage years and I still struggle with breakouts and scaring. I also struggle to find a hydrating moisturiser as my skin is so dry and so so many moisturisers are not hydrating enough or the other end of the spectrum of to rich for my skin.

I've heard of this but never used it. I would love to join a trial team and try it out. I'll give you a thorough and honest review if picked. I never knew all the benefits but read a magazine article on rose hip oil a week or so ago. I love roses. I know you should pull the rose hips off the plant so that another bloom can grow or all the plant energy goes to making the rose hip. I've pulled so many off passing plants that needed help. Maybe I should have tried making a face mask with them instead of tossing them back in the garden :)

Oh by the way, if picked for a trial team, I think this would help with some of the hyper-pigmentation on my cheeks and hands.

Yes I have used Rosehip Oil before and I love it! I have never tried this brand before but from what I have just read it sounds like a must try! I used Rosehip Oil for acne and scaring. I found it really helped clear up my acne and help reduce my acne scars! I would truly love to try this brand as my acne and scarring, not to mention the beginning off fine lines and crows feet is still a problem which is a big blow to my self confidence! The extraction method of oils is important to me! Of course I want of the good stuff in the products I use, and I want it to be good for the environment too! I have only used cold pressed Rosehip Oils before so I am very interested to try this to see how it will benefit me!

I love Rosehip Oil. I love the smell. I have used the Essence Range.

I have used the Trilogy Rosehip oil and found that had an awful smell to it. Would like to see if this one is different.

I haven't gotten to using rosehip oil, but I do use lavender oil to help with acne, and to help even my skin tone. However, I have been meaning to use rosehip oil because I have heard good things about it.

I would love to trial this rosehip oil. I've never tried any type of rosehip oil before, but I am keen to give it a go to improve my horrible acne scars. I don't really know much about how the oil is extracted and it doesn't really bother me how it is done, so long as it works for my skin.

alwats wanted to try rosehip oil but havent as yet would love to trial this :)

I feel like my skin has been getting duller and duller as I get older. I would love to try this product and see if it will work on me!

I have tried rosehip before (essano) and think I began to see the benefits but never replaced the empty bottle. Definitely a product I would be keen to trial again now my skin is more mature especially as it is suited to all skin types as mine can be changeable.

Now that I'm in my mid-forties the sunspots on my face are more prominent, plus I have done scars from wounds that I've received in the course of my job. I'm a bit skeptical about vitamin C and its affect when applied topically so the rosehip oil would be interesting to try.

Vitamin C is a brilliant brightening ingredient! Depending on the % in this formula will depend on the effect it has on your skin but it does help to equalise the production of melanin which causes sun spots. Won't make them go away though :(

I've never tried nut I would like to try it. I just heard it's really good with scars.

Love Rosehip oil, I'm 44 & have combination skin which can get very dry at times. It's one of the best oils around for soothing dry skin & it's one of the few products I have used around my eye area instead of eye creams as I've found it great to help with lines & the delicate skin under my eyes. I only use natural/organic products on my body, no nasties for this chicky.
