You might be wondering, “What is a rose hip, and why is it good for my skin?” Learn more about the key ingredient in our limited edition Rose Hip From Scratch Soap!
Rose hips are the round portion of the rose flower just below the petals that are produced after the roses have finished blooming. Rose hips are LOADED with vitamin C – even more than broccoli or citrus fruits! There are two different byproducts of rose hips that are popular in skincare: rose hip oil and rose hip powder.
Rose hip powder is a popular beauty ingredient in scrubs, exfoliating treatments, soaps, and face masks. It provides light exfoliation and it is packed with vitamin C and antioxidants. In addition to the power of antioxidants, rose hip powder can also rejuvenate your skin and increase collagen production. It also has essential fatty acids, including omega 3 and omega 6. All of these factors combined can keep your skin looking youthful! (A study from 2015 suggests that taking rose hip powder orally may even help reduce crow’s feet and improve the moisture and elasticity of skin…but we don’t recommend eating the Rose Hip Soap, because that just seems like a bad idea…)
