Rosehip oil 

Rosehip oil is rich in a natural source of vitamin A, known as trans-retinoic acid. Research shows that topical trans-retinoic acid is effective in helping to prevent premature ageing caused by sun exposure.

When skin is exposed to the sun, it can increase levels of enzymes that lead to the breakdown of collagen and elastin. The trans-retinoic acid in rose hip oil reduces the activity of these skin-damaging enzymes, reducing damage caused by the sun.


Rosehip oil is a natural source of antioxidants

Antioxidants are micronutrients that protect tissues in the body. Rosehip oil is rich in a range of antioxidants, including beta-carotene and lycopene, which help to protect and repair skin from premature ageing caused by modern living.



Aging causes the skin’s collagen fibres to fragment, or break down. Essential fatty acids play a key role in the maintenance and regeneration of the collagen and elastin fibres that keep skin firm and youthful. The essential fatty acids and vitamins in rose hip oil are readily absorbed by the skin and help to slow the breakdown of these fibres. With its neutral pH balance and anti- inflammatory properties, rose hip oil keeps skin balanced and healthy, helping to protect against cell degeneration caused by bacteria and oxidants. The Vitamin A found in Our Rosehip oil is ideally responsible for improving the skin's moisture level as well as the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. 


Stretch Marks and Scars Treatment 

The essential fatty acids and vitamins in rose hip oil help to keep damaged skin hydrated so that a wound can heal quickly without drying out too quickly and tearing the skin surrounding the area. These fatty acids are known as emollients, which improve the permeability and flexibility of the skin. The Vitamin A present in the oil could contribute to scar healing and skin regeneration as Vitamin A has been known to play a role in enhancing the skin’s tone and its texture. The oil also has anti-inflammatory properties that help to prevent infection. The application of SULU’s Certified Organic Rose Hip Oil to recent scars or even old scars up to twenty years old can help to improve scars in both colour and texture.


Ultra Violet Protection & Repair 

Another interesting benefit of rose hip oil is that it could combat the damage caused by the sun's UV rays on the skin. The oil contains antioxidants which fight the free radicals responsible for photo ageing. The essential fatty acids, in combination with Vitamin A help, enhance the skin texture, tone as well as pigmentation. The fact that the oil plays a huge role in moisturising the skin and mitigating irritation makes it an ideal treatment for facial rosacea. 


Natural Healthy & Beautiful Glow 

Another benefit that makes rose hip oil popular is the natural glow it gives the user. Not only does this oil help reduce or get rid of wrinkles and fine lines, but it also gives the skin an appealing and a healthy glow. All the ingredients in our rose hip oil are natural, and that makes it an ideal healthy treatment for the skin.

Also referred to as barbary fig oil or indian fig oil, prickly pear seed oil comes from the beautiful prickly pear (Opuntia ficus-indica, in Latin), a member of the cactus family. The plant is comprised of pads, seeds, flowers (usually yellow, red, or purple), trunks, and, of course, the fruit. Like other cactuses, they have also have prickles. Prickly pear cactuses can reach anywhere from 1 foot to 6-7 feet in height.



Where and how is prickly pear seed oil sourced?


While the prickly pear is native to parts of the United States, Mexico, and South America, and also flourishes in Africa, Australia, and the Mediterranean, the best prickly pear seed oil for skin care is sourced from Morocco. (We get ours from the same local women-run cooperative that provides us with our argan oil). To procure the precious oil, the seeds are typically extracted by hand and then run through complex machinery specifically designed for this purpose.

Prickly pear oil is chock-full of vitamins


Did you know that prickly pear oil has 150% more vitamin E than argan oil? It’s true. Since vitamin E is an antioxidant, prickly pear oil fights free radicals and increases cell renewal. This is great news for your skin since all this action prevents wrinkles. It also has vitamin K, which can lighten your undereye circles.



It has a high percentage of unsaturated fatty acids

These fatty acids absorb easily into your skin—without leaving that nasty, greasy residue behind. Plus, the fatty acids moisturize the collagen in your skin and tighten your pores. This leads to more elastic, younger-looking skin.



So many antioxidants = so many skin benefits

In addition to vitamins E and K, prickly pear seed oil has other antioxidants that do some serious work for your skin. These antioxidants increase cell turnover, restore elasticity, brighten your complexion, and reduce redness and dryness.
