What is Rosehip Oil?

Rosehip oil contains a list of active ingredients that promote anti-aging and stimulate the skin, such as vitamin C (a relative tissue repair), lycopene (a powerful antioxidant), vitamin A (a basic ingredient in many skin care products), omega 9 (an essential Fatty acid), beta-carotene (a strong antioxidant) and omega-6 (an essential fatty acid associated with reduction associated inflammation and fine lines.

Because of all these active ingredients, rosehip oil attracts a number of invaluable benefits. The high content of essential fatty acids is believed to help the skin retain moisture and reduce dryness. This in turn has a positive effect on wrinkles, which is a by-product of the skin that lacks moisture.

Rosehip oil can be used as carrier or as additional ingredients according to the formula. This amazing oil is best known for its high concentration (highest pure vegetable oils) by All-Trans Retinoic Acid (ATRA or as it is often abbreviated).

Oil Extraction – Cold press

The process for extracting oil from Rosehip seed product can be carried out in one of two processes: cold pressed, which we use at Rosehip Farm or hot pressed. Both methods have advantages and disadvantages.

Removing oil from the seed by a low heat extraction is called “cold pressed”.

In the extraction process of the cold-pressed Rosehip oil, it is only based on the pressure. No, or very little heat is added to the product in the extraction support. Cold presses are generally mechanically and often consist of a screw device, which is pressed against the rosehip seeds to extract the oils. Cold presses generally produce a lower yield, but a higher quality oil.

In some cases, the oil is generated using a variation of a high pressure system. This method of the aforementioned ejector presses involved a heat generated by friction and high amounts of additional pressure. However, no additional heat is added in the process. Oil produced with expeller procedures are still often known as cold-pressed and can be used to display the ejectors to be displayed.

Cold-pressed oil is controlled in various parts of the world. In Europe the label has to be certified for cold pressing and process oil production. This certification means that oil production never exceeds a certain temperature. Generally, the temperature rises below 100 ° F. The United States does not regulate oil production processes, users should perform their own tests to determine whether the oil is up to standard.

Conventional Rosehip Oil

Refined Rosehip Oil

Conventional refined rosehip oil is put through a number of processes which decolourises and deodorizers the oil. 

The Natural orange colour of the oil is reduced to a light yellow and the fragrance and flavour are also minimised.

This allows our conventional refined rosehip oil to be used for example as a carrier oil in applications or products where colour, fragrance and flavour must not affect the end products’ composition.
