Product Description & Benefits:
Skin Actives Rosehip Seed Oil is a beautiful, strong pink-orange from the carotenoids extracted with the oil during cold pressing. Rosa affinis rubiginosa is the botanical (Latin) name of the rosa mosqueta that grows on both sides on the Andes in South America, so it is found both in Chile and Argentina (ours is from Chile). Rosehip See Oil is composed mostly poly-unsaturated essential fatty acids (PUFA) like linolenic and linoleic acids. PUFAs are essential for humans because we need them but cannot synthesize them. We simply don't have the enzymes to make them, so thay have to be obtained from outside sources. If you skin is deprived of PUFas, and this is very likely, you could can expect Rosehip Oil to get your skin in high gear. The effect of rosehip oil on stretch marks, scars and bruising will interest those wishing to alleviate any of these problems. Add Rosehip Seed Oil and our Quercitin to your favorite cream (we suggest our Canvas Base Cream) to make a powerful scar and stretch mark healing cream.

You can use DIY to simply copy well-known, expensive creams and make your own cheaper home version, or to combine your favorite cream with an ingredient that you've found to be beneficial.
