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? Well..it'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?
