Rosehips are classified as astringent and cooling in Western herbalism, which points to their wrinkle-reducing and redness-calming properties. The fruit pulp and skin are high in carotenoids (such as beta-carotene and lycopene), which are powerful antioxidants and are also photo-protective (that is, they have been found to protect the skin from photo-damage from sun exposure). Our whole-fruit rosehip oil feels creamy and nonoily, more like an extract-oil than an oil, which makes it appealing to use even on a hot and humid summer day.
Rosa Whole-Fruit Rose Hip Oil
Unscented organic rosehip oil
Rosa Whole-Fruit Rose Hip Oil is an unscented but intensely orange-hued oil. It is very light, fast-absorbing, and still fragrant with the scent of rose hips and a touch of spice. It took 5 years to find the rose hip oil that met Earthwise Beauty's stringent standards and is free of essential oils. Certified organic, whole-fruit, cold-press, unrefined, and only lightly filtered. It is also undeodorized, unwinterized, and not lab-modified to appear standardized in a level of a particular nutrient.
Benefits the following skin concerns: Acne, Hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, scars, rosacea, and mature skin.

Due to the very high cost of ingredients and the labor-intensive (highly time consuming) small-batch production process. We are unable to accept returns of opened or unopened products at this time. But most products have a sample size option for purchase. So we encourage you to buy a sample first to ensure that the product suits your skin's needs and that you enjoy the texture, fragrance, and healing properties.

How to use it
Morning & Night
Massage a few drops at a time onto freshly cleansed, still-moist face. Rubbing in with fingertips, creating outward, upward circles will stimulate circulation and enhance absorption. Alternately, mix 2 to 4 drops with a few pumps of an aloe-based serum or your moisturizer. You may also add 2 to 4 drops of Rosa to a single-use amount of face mask, or use Rosa alone as an oil mask (apply onto freshly cleansed, towel-dried skin, leave on for 30 minutes, and wipe off or wash off).
Rosa is bold orange and can be staining until it is absorbed, so use it sparingly and be careful around your furniture, bedding, and clothing.
