With a success rate of over 90% in clinical trials this 100% natural, unscented rosehip oil is a gentle, non-toxic alternative for fading scars and blemishes.
Rosa Mosqueta oil has been found to be rich in EFAs namely omega 6 (44-50%), omega 3 (30-35%), and omega 9 (15-20%). EFAs are involved in promoting healthy cell regeneration at the basal layer of the epidermis. These new ‘perfect’ cells are slowly pushed to the surface – eventually fading scars and blemishes.
Its effects are also attributable to the presence of trans-retinoic acid. Trans-retinoic acid is a derivative of vitamin A, which helps with the regeneration of healthy skin cells. Because the trans-retinoic acid in Rosa Mosqueta is in a natural state as part of a complex system of unsaturated fatty acids, its action is gentle and non-irritating.
South American women have used Rosa Mosqueta for hundreds of years as a beauty oil - but scientific research into its properties has led to a broad use of the oil for the treatment of scars and other damage to the skin.
Apply 1 or 2 drops of the oil to the affected area. Massage into skin with the fingertips, using small rotational movements. Repeat 2-3 times per day. When applying, care should be taken to avoid getting the oil in the eyes – but if this happens simply wash out with cold water.
Before using topical oil on sensitive skin, or on children’s or a baby’s skin, a patch test is recommended. Simply apply a drop of oil to the back of the hand and leave for 24hrs.
Results are normally apparent after 1 month of continuous use.
For best results use sparingly - a little Rio Rosa Mosqueta oil goes a long way!
