Latin Name: Rosa canina
Method of Extraction: CO2 extraction
This is a regenerative extract, helping to reduce scarring from injury or acne. Rosehip reduces wrinkles and supports the skin’s structure and elasticity.. This is an excellent additive to “anti-ageing” treatments. Especially effective for dry, devitalized skin. These highly concentrated extracts are different in nature from the CO2 extracted essential oils found in the Essential Oil section. They are extremely effective in healing and regenerative skin care. They can be added in very small dilutions to skin care crèmes, oils, healing balms and ointments. Consider them superchargers to your skin care. They are generally added to a base oil or crème at a percentage of 0.5 - 1%.
Some CO2 extracts are viscous and do not drop from the orifice reducer in a bottle. Pop your bottle into a ziploc bag and warm in a cup of hot water. Remove the dropper and pour a small amount into the cap and drop from there. Pipettes are very handy when working with these extracts.
