Rosa Whole-Fruit Rosehip Oil
- HOW TO USE:
Rosa is the only face oil in Earthwise Beauty's line that is free of essential oils. Choose it over other face oils if you are avoiding essential oils or if your skin is very sensitive. Also choose Rosa over our other face oils if you already have many face oils on hand and would like to incorporate Rosa as an antioxidant booster for your routine—which is especially recommended for skin prone to eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea.
Rosehips are classified as astringent and cooling in Western herbalism, which points to their wrinkle-reducing and redness-calming properties. The fruit pulp and skin are high in carotenoids (such as beta-carotene and lycopene), which are powerful antioxidants and are also photo-protective (that is, they have been found to protect the skin from photo-damage from sun exposure). This whole-fruit rosehip oil feels creamy and nonoily, more like an extract-oil than an oil, which makes it appealing to use even on a hot and humid summer day. It benefits the following skin types and concerns: acne, sensitive or sensitized skin, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, scars, Rosacea, psoriasis, and eczema and mature skin.
Rosa canina (rosehip) fruit oil*, tocopherol (vit. E, from non-GMO sunflowers), Rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract.
Certified cruelty free, vegan, handcrafted, small batch. Gluten free.
For external use only.
Massage a few drops at a time onto freshly cleansed, still-moist face. Rubbing in with fingertips, creating outward, upward circles will stimulate circulation and enhance absorption. Alternately, mix 2 to 4 drops with a few pumps of an aloe-based serum or your moisturizer. You may also add 2 to 4 drops of Rosa to a single-use amount of face mask, or use Rosa alone as an oil mask (apply onto freshly cleansed, towel-dried skin, leave on for 30 minutes, and wipe off or wash off).
NOTE: Rosa is bold orange and can be staining until it is absorbed, so use it sparingly and be careful around your furniture, bedding, and clothing.
