Rosehip Seed Oil for Inflammation
Rosehip Seed oil a powerhouse for the skin, is also very beneficial as an anti-inflammatory, offering pain relief.
Studies demonstrate that when ingested, Rosehip Seed oil may also have pain relieving benefits for osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Laboratory experiments revealed that rose-hip extract inhibits lipid oxidation in vitro and reduces the chemotaxis and chemoluminescence of leucocytes, having anti-inflammatory affects. This information spurred studies on the effectiveness of Rosehip Seed for pain reduction. The studies stated that “Patients whom suffered from osteoarthritis reported that physical symptoms declined. Data from a randomized controlled trial indicate not only that pain significantly declined but also flexion of the hip improved in the active treatment group.” This led observers to the conclusion that the anti-inflammatory properties of rose-hip are useful as a treatment in patients with osteoarthritis.

Rejuvenate your Skin from Damaging Sun Exposure
If your love for the sun is beginning to reveal itself with signs of UV damage or hyper-pigmentation, or perhaps your enjoyment of life is creating smile-lines around your eyes and face, Rosehip Seed oil is your new best friend!
The Vitamin A in Rosehip seed oil helps moisturize dry, mature skin. The bonus is – it has a power-packed effect due to its abundance of essential fatty acids (EFAs), which are essential to keeping our skin healthy and strong. Our bodies do not make EFAs. We either need to get them through our diet, or we can absorb them through the skin. The skin can absorb Rosehip Seed oil very quickly, such that it doesn’t leave any greasiness behind. It’s an excellent choice to treat dry, itchy skin. Rosehip Seed oil is also known to increase elastin levels and cell regeneration, which is a boon if you spend a lot of time outdoors in the elements or exposed to the sun.
Rosehip Seed Oil in Our Skin Enhancing Blends
You’ll find Rosehip Seed oil in our most popular products including Beauty Bliss, Heavenly Skin Serum, Heavenly Skin for Men, Milk & Honey, Radiance Serum, Smooth Skin Scar Treatment, Super Skin Care Serum, and Sun Radiance.

We personally use our Super Skin Care Base to make our own body lotion using our Organic Coconut/Jojoba Cream base and have found outstanding results in the hydration retaining affects as well as overall improvement of the skin.
