Skin Benefits of Roses and Rosehip Oil

The Rose, one of the foundational ingredients in the Tammy Fender collection, has a long been revered for its rejuvenating benefits for the skin, and for the way it opens the heart.. Discover how the skin benefits of roses and rosehip oil deliver the most nurturing botanical support to every skin type.


What is Rosehip Oil?

Rosehip oil is rich in nutrients and beneficial compounds, making it a cherished element in skin care formulas. Although often referred to simply as ‘rosehip oil’, there are two distinct variants: Rosehip Seed Oil and Rosehip Fruit Oil. Both are derived from the rose bush, specifically from the species Rosa canina or Rosa rubiginosa and offer unique benefits due to their different compositions.

Rosehip Seed Oil: This precious oil comes straight from the heart of the rosehip fruit – the seeds. The oil is highly valued as it is rich in essential fatty acids, including omega-3, omega-6, and linolenic acid.  These fatty acids are key to maintaining healthy skin as they help to regenerate skin cells and repair damaged skin tissues and broken capillaries. Rosehip Seed Oil also contains a significant amount of beta-carotene, a form of provitamin A known for its antioxidant properties and ability to support skin health.

Rosehip Fruit Oil: Extracted from the seeds and the fruit’s flesh pulp, Rosehip Fruit Oil is rich in beta-carotene, boasting higher antioxidant levels, which are fantastic for your skin's overall health and resilience and act as aa powerful shield for your skin. This oil is especially wonderful for helping skin appear more even and bright. 

Rosehip Seed Oil and Rosehip Fruit Oil both offer properties that enhance skin health and vitality. Incorporating either into your skincare routine can support a more nourished, radiant complexion. Whether you are looking to fortify your skin’s natural defenses or rejuvenate its appearance, these oils provide a natural, effective solution for diverse skin needs.


Benefits of Rosehip Oil for Skin - Face and Body

Enhancing elasticity: Rosehip Seed Oil particularly excels in strengthening the skin’s elasticity, which helps slow signs aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. It offers a rich blend of vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids, including linoleic acid, which fortifies the skin’s barrier, boosting resilience against environmental stressors.

Hydration: Both oils are incredibly hydrating despite being 'dry' oils. They seal moisture into the skin without clogging pores, are suitable for any skin type, and leave the skin supple and deeply moisturized. Their ability to enhance hydration is one of the key benefits of rosehip oil, making it a preferred choice for maintaining healthy, vibrant skin.

Brightening and evening skin tone: Rosehip Fruit Oil is especially effective in gently fading pigmentation and balancing skin tone thanks to its high vitamin C content, which enhances collagen production.

Healing scars and skin damage: Rosehip Seed Oil's regenerative properties encourage new skin growth, enhancing the appearance and texture of scarred areas and making your skin feel cared for and restored.

Calming: Both Rosehip Seed Oil and Rosehip Fruit Oil offer calming benefits. Their anti-inflammatory properties soothe redness and ease discomfort and skin irritation while deeply nourishing sensitive skin.

How to Use Rosehip Oil

Our rosehip oil-enriched formulas can contribute to all the small daily rituals that keep your skin glowing and your spirit uplifted.

Start your day by gently massaging Intensive Repair Balm into your skin. This morning ritual is perfect for setting your skin up to feel pampered and protected, no matter what your day holds.

After your shower, while your skin is still dewy and warm, smooth on Bulgarian Lavender Body Oil. It’s a lovely way to nourish not just your skin but your senses too, with its clean, serene scent of Lavender. You can even apply a bit of this beautiful blend to the ends of your hair to tame frizz and add a healthy sheen.

For an even deeper treatment, warm the oil slightly before applying. Simply place the bottle in a bowl of hot water for a few minutes. The warmed oil can then be massaged into the skin, starting from the scalp and working down towards the heart, as advised by Ayurvedic tradition. This method nourishes the skin, enhances circulation, and relieves tension. Doing this at night is particularly lovely to ease into a restful, serene sleep.

Then, as evening comes around, it's time to help your skin recover and rejuvenate. Depending on what your skin craves, you have two beautiful options. 

Celestial Rose Crème is an evening essential that calms and enriches your skin with its pure Rose Oil and Manuka Honey, creating a soothing end to your day. If your skin feels particularly thirsty, the Intensive Repair Balm is ideal. 

Alternatively, for a luminous touch and additional nourishment, a few drops of our Quintessential Serum, which includes Rosehip Seed Oil, can be the perfect nightcap for your skin. This serum feels incredibly luxurious as you press it into your skin, ideal for soothing and revitalizing after a long day. For those with extra dry skin, a few drops of Quintessential Serum can be layered under the Celestial Rose Crème. This combination is not only incredibly hydrating but also deeply nourishing, ensuring your skin remains supple and radiant throughout the night

Embrace these moments while you gently massage these nurturing formulas into your skin with mindfulness. This daily ritual has the potential to rejuvenate body, mind, and soul transforming everyday routines into beautiful self-care. 

In the evening, rely on Celestial Rose Crème to infuse your skin with the healing and hydrating power of Rose and Rosehip Seed Oil. This evening ritual supports your skin's natural repair processes, leaving you with a balanced and beautifully nourished complexion by morning.


Can You Use Rosehip Oil Every Day?

Yes, Rosehip Oil can be used daily as incorporated into favorite skincare formulations or as a carrier oil when mixed with essential oils. It's gentle and effective, making it suitable for routine use to nourish and rejuvenate the skin. As with any skincare product, it's wise to conduct a patch test before regular use, especially if you have sensitive skin.
