Glow up with Rosehip Oil: for soft, supple and luminous skin

Glow up with Rosehip Oil: for soft, supple and luminous skin

by Diana Zuban

Cold pressed from the seeds - not the flower - of the wild rose bush mostly found in the Andes Mountains (but also parts of Africa and Europe), Rosehip Oil is a nutritional powerhouse of goodness for skin. Packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids, Rosehip Oil is a standout favourite Natio skincare ingredient, found in many of our nourishing formulas. This is why:

Multi Vitamin Marvel 

Vitamins A, C, and E? Tick, tick and tick. Together, this trio of antioxidant vitamins offer a triple dose of cellular protection, helping to defend against the harmful effects of pollution, UV radiation, and other environmental stressors. They also work to neutralise free radicals that can accelerate skin ageing. Working independently, Vitamin A helps to promote skin cell turnover, Vitamin C boosts collagen production and brightens skin, and Vitamin E offers excellent moisturising benefits. The combined result? Radiant, hydrated and supple skin. 

Hydration and Moisture Dynamo 

In addition to the above-mentioned Vitamin E, Rosehip Oil is also rich in moisturising essential fatty acids omega 3 and omega 6 which are critical for maintaining the skin's barrier function, a non-negotiable must for healthy, comfortable skin. Essentially, these fatty acids help to lock in moisture, doubling down to keep the skin hydrated and helping to keep dry skin at bay. Skin feels calm, soft and comfortable, appearing hydrated, healthy and glowingly happy. Yes please. 

Healing, Soothing Hero 

Thanks to the combination of antioxidants and high essential fatty acid content outlined above, Rosehip Oil also has powerful healing and regeneration properties that can help to accelerate and support the healing process of minor wounds, scars and burns. Rosehip Oil is also wonderful for soothing inflammation and redness, making it beneficial for those with sensitive or irritated skin. Eliminate the woes and you’ll have healthy, happy skin that glows 

Undoubtedly, Rosehip Oil is an absolute, glowing superstar for skin, and incorporating it into your skincare routine is super simple. Many Natio cleansers, serums and moisturisers already feature Rosehip as a hero ingredient, giving ready access to its nutrient-rich goodness.  

Pure Rosehip Oil can be used alone as a standalone treatment: simply apply a few drops directly to skin after cleansing, toning and applying serum (if used) to unlock Rosehip Oil’s benefits, neat. Follow with moisturiser. Alternatively, mix a few drops of pure Rosehip Oil with your favourite moisturiser or serum to further boost its hydration capacity and nutrient load (especially beneficial before bed, to help supercharge your skin’s overnight rest and renewal).  

And for the final feather in Rosehip Oil’s cap, her lightweight and non-greasy texture makes her suitable for all skin types (yep - including oily and acne-prone skin), meaning one and all can reap the rich rewards of this radiance-boosting wonder ingredient.
