Rose hips are pseudo-fruits found on the Rosa plant that belongs to Rosaceae family. The hips have been used traditionally for medicinal purposes because of the bioactive compounds that are known to have a high level of antioxidant and antimicrobial activities.
Our rosehip oil is cold-pressed exclusively from the seeds of the hips. The oil contains 40-56% linoleic acid (omega-6), 20-30% α-linoleic acid (omega-3) and 14-20% oleic acid. It is also rich in phenols, vitamins B, C, E and carotenoids.
