Rosehip (Rosa canina) oil is known for its skin-conditioning properties and for restoring skin suppleness. It is especially appropriate for the delicate epidermis found on the face, neck and around the eyes.â”¬Ã¡Rosehip is well known for its impact on long term skin damage. It contains trans-retinoic acid, which is unique. This is possibly why it has such a distinct action on the skin. Rosehip does oxidize, however, so suggested storage for this oil is in refrigeration.â”¬Ã¡Aura Cacia Organic Rosehip Oil is cold-pressed from the fruit seeds of wild-harvested climbing dog rose shrubs in the southern Andes region of Chile. Families who harvest the fruit have often been doing so for generations.
