Bountiful Wild Rosehip
Hand-harvested in the Wild
Our rosehip comes exclusively from twenty-five farms & ranches, spanning hundreds of thousands of acres in the regions of Bío-Bío and Maule where it is wild-harvested from certified organic land. Fed only by the fertile soil, watered only by the rain and touched only by the graceful wind that gently dances over these hills, the vitality of the land is felt in this beautiful oil. Once expressed from the seed, it has no contact with air until we open the container in our facility in San Diego.
Rosehip seed oil is a remarkably light-weight oil that penetrates skin rapidly while infusing skin with a myriad of beautifying nutrients. Considered to be a ‘dry’ oil because it absorbs so well, rosehip’s unique profile of vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids make it a profoundly nourishing feast for the skin. For centuries it has been used to care for skin that is damaged, scarred, burned, flakey and irritated. It is our first choice for skin that is scarred and hyper-pigmented.
