Please check that your bottle of rosehip oil is pure, cold-pressed, and of organic origin. There are many rosehip oils from Chile which are extracted with solvents, then deodorised, and refined at high temperatures.

Pure rosehip oil has an orange-yellow colour and sometimes even tends to be red. If your oil is closer to transparent, it has been chemically altered.

The smell is the unmistakable characteristic, it smells of everything but rose! If your oil has a pleasant scent, it is likely to be refined and deodorized oil. In fact, many commercial brands add artificial scents to their rosehip oil.

The smell of true rosehip oil may surprise you, but it is a guarantee of its quality and – above all – its efficiency!
