Rosa rubiginosa is a deciduous plant that produces distinctive fragrant flowers. Once these fall off, the hips, containing large amounts of vitamins C and A, and antioxidant properties, are used for making tea, marmalade and in the cosmetic industry.
Rosehip oil isn’t easy to extract, but its properties are nothing short of magical.
We were thrilled to discover the Rio Rosa brand and its Rosa Mosqueta face oil, produced additive-free from organic plants in the Amazon rain forest.
Our partiality to facial oils is well-documented but this one is special in that it contains, in addition to the precious Rosehip, Cranberry, Sacha Inchi, Grapeseed, Argan, Macadamia, Jojoba, Sunflower, Geranium and Lavander oils, with added Vit. A.
It is light enough to use around the delicate eye area and is easily absorbed, leaving your face ready for sun screen or make up within minutes.
It perfects the texture of the skin and protects it from the myriad of pollutants in the city and general weather fluctuations. A perfect moisturiser, it can be used all year round or when the skin needs a boost and an added layer of defence against the elements.
A great find, this is an EcoControl certified product!
