When you hear "Rosehip Oil," what is the first thing you think of?
You likely remember the time your mother asked you to buy it online or the day your friend told you about her dermatologist's recommendation to better heal an inopportune burn mark.
Rosehip oil is beautiful. It contains 80% of essential fatty acids that the body does not regularly produce and needs to deeply nourish the skin, such as omega 6, omega 3, linoleic. It also contains vitamin C and vitamin E, powerful antioxidants that may help to:
✓Minimize dark spots and age spots.
✓ Repair stretch marks and scars naturally.
✓ Reduce the visibility of wrinkles and expression lines.
✓ Nourish and soothe dry, flaky, and inflamed skin.
✓ Strengthen and beautify the nails.
✓ Increase skin elasticity and firmness.
