Chilean women have been using rose hip seed oil for centuries to keep that youthful glow – heck, most of Latin America knows and loves this oil. Rosa Mosqueta oil comes from the seeds of a wild rose that grows in the Andes and was used by Araucanian Indigenous People for its regenerative properties. It is rich in vitamins A, C and E.
I remember growing up, my grandparents swore by it to treat skin wounds (think chicken pox!) and likely their grandparents also swore by it and so did their grandparents’s grandparents.
It’s not only great for hair, nails, and helps things like stretch marks and fine lines, but it also fights infections, stomach issues, and inflammatory diseases, so this wild rose is truly a genius botanical. It has even been studied by legit academic institutions to treat czema, neurodermatitis, and cheilitis, and the results have been extremely promising.
Where’s the magic behind Rose Hip Oil? Multiple studies show that the vitamins and fatty acids seem to regenerate cells, help with collagen production, and regulates moisture.
The history of this plant is also pretty magical. One of the likeliest origin stories behind this plant is that in 1974, a Chilean engineer, Carlos Amin, discovered Rose Hip oil through his work with pigs. It turns out that pigs have surprisingly soft and healthy skin. Through analysis they discovered that the pigs were chomping on the fruit of Rosa Mosqueta plants! Carlos and his team researched the properties of this plant and found that the oil regenerated skin tissue.
Rosa Mosqueta feels unlike anything you have ever put on your skin. It’s soft, oily, and even feels like it adds a layer of protection once you apply it to your face. It feels like it instantly tightens and refreshes the skin in your problem areas, and after a couple of weeks you’ll feel a noticeable difference in your skin texture.
