Ingredient Spotlight: Rosehip Oil
You may have noticed that Rosehip is having a bit of a moment these days. It’s popping up in our favorite face oils, cleansers, hair care, and even toothpaste. Miranda Kerr and Kate Middleton have both recently cited Rosehip Oil as one of the essential parts of their skincare routines. It is also the standout ingredient in our Pressed Foundation with Rosehip Antioxidant Complex.
We did a very informal survey here in the AP office, and some of us (myself included) thought Rosehip came from the rose flower. The Rosehip is actually the fruit left behind after a rose has flowered and dropped its petals. Portland may be known as Rose City, but I didn’t even know roses had fruit so if your mind is currently blown, then I'm right there with you.
The oil is separated from the hips and seeds using a cold-press extraction technique. Rosehip oil is composed primarily of essential fatty acids, vitamin E, vitamin C and B-carotene, a form of vitamin A— all essential nutrients for healthy skin.
Our Pressed Foundation is infused with Rosehip Antioxidant Complex which soothes, protects, and revitalizes delicate facial skin. Rosehip is shown to be brightening, hydrating, and firming. The compact and sponge duo make our Pressed Foundation ideal for on-the-go touch-ups and it leaves your skin with a luxurious velvety, matte finish.
