Pure rosehip oil hand harvested in Chile
Tucked into the wilderness at the foothills of the great Andes Mountains in Chile, there is a vast valley region abundant with wild rosehip. There, we work with stewards at over 25 farms and ranches who harvest rosehip seeds from thorny bushes, dry them and cold press into nourishing oil to create one of our most cherished facial serums.
Our pure, rosehip oil is hand harvested in Chile.
Meet Chilean Wild Rosehip Seed Oil
Harvest and production of rosehip seed oil
The rosehip plant grows wild without any human intervention — fed only by fertile soil, watered only by rain, and touched only by wind.
Harvesting rosehip is a highly labor-intensive process requiring several layers of protective gear, gloves and heavy-duty work boots, to protect collectors from rosehip’s treacherous thorns. Collectors remove ripe hips from the scraggly rose plants with small hand-rakes with remarkable precision, so as not to damage them. After harvest, the rosehip seeds continue to plump and ripen.
Before drying, the rosehips are thoroughly washed in cool water. They are then dried for 14 hours in a drying “tunnel” that is heated by wood fire at a facility in Chillán. Seeds are then separated from their shells then sent to the pressing facility in Santiago, where they are stored until ready for cold pressing. Our rosehip oil never sits around in a storage warehouse, it is freshly cold pressed each time we place an order.
Our producer is involved in every step of the process: working directly with the collectors, drying and processing the seeds themselves, and finally cold pressing them into oil. Our Chilean Wild Rosehip Seed Oil is certified organic.
We pay 60% more for our direct-sourced rosehip than we would if we chose to purchase from distribution warehouses.
By paying this premium, we ensure our collectors are paid fair wages, and also that we have the freshest oil possible with complete transparency and traceability through every aspect of production.
