The deodorisation method used for this Rosehip Oil is registered with the Soil Association to pass the standard for an organic production method.
The deodorisation process is basically a steam cleaning process of the oil in a vacuum. It creates a more or less smell-free oil.
Most commercial rosehip oil now comes from Chile and grows wild in the Southern Andes.
Rosehip oil is the only vegetable oil, which contains natural tretinoin, the acid form of vitamin A also known as all-trans-retinoic acid or ATRA in quantities of 125mcg per every 100g.
Shelf life is normally 6 months but Aromantic adds 0.5% vitamin E oil to our rosehip oils just after production, so the shelf life is extended to 2 years.
It is an excellent source of trans-retinoic acid (a natural precursor of vitamin A), which is also very good for treating all kinds of skin problems.
It is also useful in products for damaged skin tissue and for treating oily skin, sensitive skin, and reducing or healing fine lines around the eyes, wrinkles and scars.
