INGREDIENT SPOTLIGHT - ROSEHIP SEED
WHAT IS IT?
It's extracted from the Rosa Canina rose bush which are mostly found in Chile. Rosehip oil is pressed from the fruit and seeds rather than the petals from which we get rose oil. It's powdered extract is made when the dried rosehip fruit and seeds are finely ground. Six Apothecary uses both formats in a multitude of our products.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
Loaded with tons of nourishing vitamins and fatty acids, this powerhouse extract functions in our formulas in a variety of ways.
It hydrates like a champ! The fatty acids help to keep the skin strong to lock in moisture. Not to mention, drier skin will love how it absorbs and nourishes, alleviating itchiness.
Want a collagen boost? Rosehip is rich in Vitamins A and C which are essential for collagen production.
It can help with hyperpigmentation and scars. Fatty acids and Vitamin A are a great combo to help reduce pigmentation issues and brighten up scar tissue.
It's a gentle exfoliant! Vitamin A (retinol) is naturally occuring in Rosehip Seed which helps speed up cell turnover. With continued use, this will leave skin looking smooth and bright.
