Origin: Most commercial Rosehip oil now comes from Chile and grows

Rosehip Seed Oil which is used commercially is produced in Chile. It

Rosehip Seed Oil is high in both Linoleic Fatty Acid and Linolenic Fatty
Acids and they belong to what we call Essential Fatty Acids often known
as Vitamin-F. One of the effects of these is to reduce the size of the
pores so it's very good for preparations for people with large pores
on the skin. Because of its natural content of Vitamin A, it is also very
good for all kinds of skin infections such as acne,
pimples and boils. It is also useful in the treatment of damaged skin
tissue caused by scalds, burns and varicose veins.
"I was very thrilled to find your site
as some items you carry are not available in the U.S. I will certainly
be a regular customer."
The consistency of Rosehip Seed Oil is dry to very dry and is useful
in all kinds of face oils where the purpose is cell regeneration. The
high quantity of Linolenic Acid (a Poly-Unsaturated Fatty Acid) means
that Rosehip Seed Oil has a low melting point (20ºC minus). This
helps to counteract the high melting point of Saturated Fats such as Cholesterol
(150ºC plus), Cocoa
Butter (28ºC plus). This high melting point means that it is
hard for the body to process. This is one of the reasons why people with
oily skin / acne should
not eat chocolate. By adding Rosehip Seed Oil to your skin, you reduce
the overall melting point of the fats in your skin allowing the body to
Due to the high level of of Poly-Unsaturated Fatty Acids, you should
never buy the oil without added 0.5 Vitamin
E Oil. (This prevents the oil from going rancid.) Without this the
Rosehip Oil will have a shelf life of less than 6 months. By adding
0.5% Vitamin E Oil,
this will increase the shelf life to around 2 years.
Each Recipe makes 100%

oils of your preference.
