New 20ml dropper bottles available online now!

by Rio Rosa Mosqueta on October 5, 2016

We’re very excited to announce that our brand new 20ml dropper rosehip oil bottles are now available to purchase online and will be available in-store soon!

After listening to our customers, we’ve given our rosehip oil bottles a new, sleek look and added a dropper pipette to make it easier to dispense the oil. Our bottles may have changed, but the oil inside remains the same – 100% Rosa Mosqueta rosehip oil, sourced from a wild rose called Rosa Affinis Rubiginosa that grows high in the Chilean Andes.

If you’ve never used Rosa Mosqueta rosehip oil before, here’s why it’s been the best-kept beauty secret of South American women for centuries…

Rosa Mosqueta rosehip oil can be used to fade fine lines, wrinkles, scars and stretch marks and can also be used to sooth dry skin and sun damage. In fact, its effectiveness in fading scars has been proven in clinical trials.

This lightweight, natural oil is rich in Omegas 3, 6 and 9 and vitamins A, C and Beta Carotene, making it a valuable source of essential fatty acids (EFAs). They are “essential”, because our bodies can’t produce them naturally, so we must obtain them from dietary sources instead.

These EFAs are crucial for the maintenance of healthy skin, as they’re used to produce prostaglandins that provide tissue regenerating and rejuvenating effects, as well as acting to reduce inflammation.

In addition, Rosa Mosqueta rosehip oil is a source of trans-retinoic acid, a natural source of vitamin A, which also has healing and rejuvenating properties.
