Why we love rosehip seed oil

Rosehip seed oil is the queen of vegetable oils

Anyone looking at the ingredient list of our ananné Looking at products, you will find that one name comes up particularly often: ROSA CANINA FRUIT OIL.

This is rosehip seed oil, also known as wild rose oil.

 This vegetable oil has such diverse properties that are important for skin health that it is suitable for all skin types. But let's take a look at which ingredients make rosehip seed oil so special.

Rose hips are the purest vitamin C bombs. No other European fruit contains more vitamin C than it. Since our body cannot produce vitamin C on its own, it is dependent on the supply from food and skin care products.

What effect does vitamin C have on the skin?

Vitamin C supports the skin in collagen production and makes the complexion appear more even. This smoothing effect prevents wrinkles, but also has a positive effect on scars, such as those caused by wounds or acne.

As an effective antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals, it protects the skin from environmental influences such as UV radiation, blue light and dirt.

Due to its anti-inflammatory effect, vitamin C reduces small inflammations in the skin, which we perceive as pimples or even acne. Therefore, vitamin C has proven itself in the care of impure skin.

In addition, vitamin C inhibits melanin formation. It evens out pigment damage and age spots and fades them.

Cell protection thanks to vitamin E

Rose hips also contain large amounts of vitamin E, the cell protection vitamin. Vitamin E, which is known in cosmetics primarily under the name of tocopherol, cannot be produced by the body on its own either. It works particularly well in combination with vitamin C. No wonder, since both vitamins have comparable properties.

Like vitamin C, vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant. As a free radical scavenger, it protects cells and prevents cell membranes from being destroyed by free radicals. In this way it maintains the natural skin protection barrier. In addition, vitamin E regulates the moisture content and makes the skin more elastic. It also has an accelerating effect on wound healing.

Retinol is also found in significant amounts 

Rose hips are full of carotenoids. This is a precursor of vitamin A, also known as provitamin A, which stands for the ingredient retinol, which is popular in cosmetics.

Retinol is an efficient active ingredient against wrinkles and lines and is therefore particularly popular with mature skin. It speeds up the whole process of skin renewal and promotes collagen production. This not only has a firming and smoothing effect, but also refines the pores.

The combination of vitamin A and vitamin C creates a peeling effect. Since collagen production is boosted at the same time, this vitamin duo is good for reducing stretch marks and scars, but can also be used on dry and scaly skin.

This is why rosehip seed oil is so well absorbed 

About 60% of the fatty acids contained in rosehip seed oil are polyunsaturated fatty acids such as linoleic acid. These strengthen the skin cells in their ability to regenerate and have a moisturizing and nourishing effect. They also help the oil to penetrate the skin well.

But the higher the degree of double bonds, the gentler the extraction process has to be in order to maintain good quality.

That is why the extraction process is so important

ananné obtains the rosehip seed oil from controlled organic cultivation and uses it exclusively in the high quality that is only possible through extraction using CO2 extraction. This is particularly important with rosehip seed oil, as it is a very sensitive oil. So when it comes into contact with oxygen, as is the case with cold pressing, it can quickly oxidize and become rancid.

In addition, the extraction form has the advantage that significantly more of the valuable ingredients can be extracted from the fruit stones. Compared to cold pressing, the proportion of carotenoids contained is five times higher!
