Ingredient spotlight: rosehip oil

Over the last few years rosehip oil has become an increasingly popular ingredient in many skincare products. Rosehip oil comes from the seeds of a rose bush that grows wild in South Africa and Chile. It contains 77% of fatty acids (linoleic and linolenic).

NZ brand Trilogy uses rosehip oil as its signature ingredient, as do Aussie brands Kosmea and Renew. Many other brands include pure rosehip oil as part of the ranges. Rosehip oil is excellent for moisturising the skin, preventing premature aging, and for fading scars.

Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil $22.90 for 20ml, and $38.90 for 45ml
Evolu Certified Organic Rosehip Oil 30ml $21
A’kin Pure Radiance Rosehip Oil 23ml $21.50
