So, Rosehip Oil. You've probably tried it now? Or at least heard of it? No? Here's the nitty-not-so-gritty (because it's bloomin' wonderful...)
Rosehips are actually the dark red fruits of roses - they've have been used since ancient times around the globe. Mayans, Egyptians and Native-Americans discovered that besides the pleasant-smelling fragrance of the roses, these plants came with extra benefits.
What benefits? Well..rosehip is 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!
While revelling in the skin care benefits of this delightful ingredient, we seem to have missed that it's also really great for...our hair!
First up it's a 'dry oil' so it won't turn your hair into lank, greasy strands. Those essential fatty acids it's full of? They're brilliant for repairing the hair follicles. The Beta Carotenes are ace at balancing oil production. Rosehip Oil will soothe an irritated scalp and add shine to hair of all types.
The Schwarzkopf Extra Care Rosehip Oil Elixir provides incredible nourishment and protection, leaving the hair looking gorgeously soft, smooth and shine. Rose Hip Oil packs this oil full of regenerative properties and antioxidants and the ultimate win...leaves a non-greasy ﬁnish.
