7 All-Star Skin
with Rose Hip

Tinted an exquisite marigold red, rose hip oil is one of the most universally skin-friendly ingredients we know. For centuries, people have eaten the gorgeous seedpods of wild roses for vitamins, like C and beta-carotene, and today we love the extract in skin care, as unprocessed as possible. (Usually, the darker the color, the less processed, more powerful, and more expensive the oil; some conventional skin-care formulas that tout rose hip on the label are completely clear, indicating that the oil used has been processed out of many of its potential nutrients.)

Fantastically moisturizing and naturally infused with enough incredible-for-skin compounds to really make a difference in how your complexion looks and feels, it’s one of the best ingredients for helping to recharge dry, blemished, or just blah skin. Carefully extracted from the seeds of wild rose bushes growing in regions including Chile and South Africa, the pure oil is a brilliant source of antioxidants, beta-carotene, and essential fatty acids, like linoleic acid and omegas.1

Rose hip oil feels incredible, and depending on the formula’s intensity and your skin tone, it may turn your skin faintly orange-pinkish for a moment; the moment will pass as it melts in seamlessly, leaving you glowy and smooth. Pressing it over foundation or tinted moisturizer is an excellent mid- or end-of-day refresher, whether you’re wearing makeup or going bare-skinned.

No matter what your skin type, clean skin care that lists rose hip as a primary ingredient can make a beautiful difference in moisture levels, not to mention glow (we love it for the body, too, which is why it’s in our G.Day body wash and body oil). Our favorite rose-hip-infused essentials come supercharged with other incredibly nourishing botanicals, gently exfoliating enzymes, antioxidants, and balancing oils, so they work even harder to leave skin supple, radiant, and fresh.
