Rosehip is a plant that grows in certain parts of Europe, North Africa, West Asia and in some parts of Chile and Argentina. Out of the Eglantine Rose species, the oil comes specifically from the pods, which look like reddish orange bulbs, and which were used for centuries in these regions to cure skin wounds.
Since there are so many of them, the benefits of this oil for the skin have become popular in recent years, this is due to its complete combination of fatty acids and vitamins, namely: Omega 3 and 6, Vitamins A, C and E.
