Minimalist Rosehip Face Oil is a pure cold-pressed rosehip oil having a high content of essential fatty and unsaturated acids with antioxidant properties. This rosehip oil is coupled with 3% VC-IP (Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate) which is an oil-soluble vitamin C derivative. The combination brightens, repairs skin, fades scars and also reduces signs of photoaging.
The science behind this product: Rosehip Oil has been used for decades to treat skin scars or wounds. This particular repair property is attributed to its high content of essential fatty and unsaturated acids, namely - linoleic acid (54%), linolenic acid (17%) and oleic acid (16%) among others. These essential fatty acids are basic components of the phospholipids in cell membranes, to which they provide permeability and elasticity. These acids also play an essential role in the stability and functioning of the skin barrier.
Rosehip oil is further rich in vitamins, including vitamin C and vitamin A, making the oil a very potent antioxidant. Because of such a composition, rosehip oil is used for skin brightening, reduction of hyperpigmentation, fading acne scars, wound healing and reducing fine lines. This formulation is further boosted by a new generation, oil-soluble, vitamin C derivative, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate. This derivative is proven to have 6-10 times more uptake than ascorbic acid in Fibroblast. It is also proven to increase collagen synthesis greater than twofold over ascorbic acid at the same dosage.
This variant is stable at high temperatures and has good solubility in oils. It exhibits excellent percutaneous absorption and effectively converts into free vitamin C in the skin to perform various physiological functions. It promotes skin brightening by inhibiting tyrosinase activity, reduces UV-induced cell damage, acts as antioxidant and prevents skin aging, and lastly reverses signs of aging by boosting collagen synthesis and collagen protection.
