Online source for a unique natural skin care
product, a healing gift of nature, known until recently only by the
native people of Chile.
Thanks to scientific research now recognized
worldwide by doctors and the cosmetic and dermatology industry for
the effects of the natural topical trans-retinoic acid (vitamin A)
The effect on the skin is central to the use of
Rose Hip Oil. Many benign disorders of the skin may be treated with
Aging wrinkles and sun damaged skin with
discolorations or dark spots benefit from the increased irrigation
which Rose Hip Seed Oil stimulates and the renewal of skin cells it
The aging process frequently is associated with
variable degrees of a metabolic slowdown in all tissues including
the skin, and this natural skin care product reinforces the waning
metabolic functions of the skin.
Scars become softer and less prominent; pits and
blemishes as well (such as scars from acne, chicken pox or small
pox). Scar treatment is where Rose Hip Oil has had immense success.
When used for 2-4 weeks pre-surgery over the planned sites of
surgery and continued post-surgery, considerable reduction or total
elimination of scar formation has occurred. In fact research has
found that the earlier the oil is applied to the tissues before
incisions or to the scar itself, the more significant the effect in
preventing the laying down of excessive scar tissue.
Keloid formation is reduced and often fails to form
at all with this routine regimen. Many Plastic and Reconstructive
surgeons have adopted this use of Rose Hip Seed Oil.
Oil is extracted from the seeds contained
in the intensely red berry-like fruits -or hips- of a wild rose-bush
that grows in the cool, lush mountain rainy valleys of the southern
Andes, in Chile.
This wild rose is known by the people of Chile as " Rosa Mosqueta ",
and by scientists as Rosa Affinis Rubiginosa. It's healing
properties where a well kept secret of the native people of Chile
for centuries. Now they have been validated by scientific research worldwide.
Massage the oil into the affected area with your
fingertips until it is completely absorbed. If you use it during the
day you must place a sunblocker on top.
Rose Hip Oil applied twice a day every day for about three months
reduces scar tissues, helps to prevent and reduce stretch marks,
attenuates wrinkles & age spots. Anti-inflammatory, improves burned
skin. Aids in the treatment of dermatitis that results from
radiotherapy. Excellent to prevent photo aging and immediately
relieve dry skin and eczema.
Source of topical retinoic acid (vitamin A) in a natural
Retinoic acid works by binding to specific cell receptors of skin
after a topical application. After the cell receptors have been
activated, there is a modification in gene expression, subsequent
protein synthesis, and cell growth and differentiation. Thus, the
epidermal cell is modified increasing the regeneration of damaged
skin and the capacity to produce new tissue as a consequence of an
acceleration of the differentiation of the keratin.
Topical trans-retinoic acid is also synthesized as a drug and is
trade marked as Tretinoin, Retin-A, Renova, and many other
commercial names, and has attracted attention because it improves
the appearance of photo-aged skin and is prescribed for the
treatment of acne.
The FDA approved topical tretinoin in December 1995 for improving
the appearance of photo-aged skin. Tretinoin reduces fine facial
wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation (age spots), and surface roughness
associated with chronic sun exposure. The drug sloughs off dead
skin, regenerates collagen, and allows cells in the top layer of the
skin, which are always being replaced, to mature more normally than
untreated sun-damaged cells.
There is evidence that trans-retinoic-acid actually prevents sun
damage. Researchers have found that even brief exposure to sunlight
increases the activity of enzymes that break down the proteins
collagen and elastin that provide structural support for the skin.
Products containing trans-retinoic-acid reduce the activation of
Side effects of the drug tretinoin for topical application
include temporary peeling, redness, and blistering, and a permanent
increase in sun sensitivity. ROSE HIP OIL content of trans-retinoic acid in a natural form
makes it far more skin friendly and absorbable by the human body due
to it's bio-availability or compatibility with our live skin cell
structures. The only side effect is an increase in sun sensitivity
of the newly formed skin cells that arise due to its action. And
that can be wisely addressed with a sun-blocker.
