rosehip oil

Rosehip oil is a true elixir: Several studies indicate the effectiveness of rosehip oil on the skin.  The first major confirmation of its capabilities came in 1983, when the University of Santiago conducted research on 180 individuals.  These tests studied people with extensive facial scarring, acne scarring, deep wrinkles, UV damage, radiation damage, burn scars, surgical scars, premature aging, dermatitis, and other skin related problems.  In these tests, rosehip seed oil regenerated the skin; reduced scars and wrinkles prevented the advancement of wrinkles and aging, and helped skin to regain its natural color and tone.  After four months of using rose hip oil there skin had a fresher and healthier look. A study in Spain illustrated the positive results on scars after surgery using rose hip oil, scars were diminished and hardly visible. The color is a gorgeous and is in HollyBeth Organics face & neck elixir and rose geranium face moisturizer. Try some and see your skin glow!
