Alright, let's talk about rosehip oil for lips, shall we? It may not be the first thing that comes to mind when we think about lip care, but trust me, it's a game-changer.
Rosehip seed oil is like a secret weapon for our pouts. You know, those moments when our lips are dry, cracked, and just not feeling their best? That's when it comes in with its nourishing and hydrating powers.
With its rich concentration of vitamins and essential fatty acids, rosehip seed oil dives deep into the delicate skin of our lips, bringing much-needed moisture and rejuvenation. It's like giving our lips a well-deserved spa day, but without the fluffy robes and cucumber slices.
But here's the best part: rosehip seed oil is all-natural. No harsh chemicals or artificial fragrances. Just pure, unadulterated goodness that our lips can soak up. It's a reminder that we can take care of ourselves while being kind to our bodies and the environment.
So what is rosehip oil, you ask?
Rosehip oil — also known as rosehip seed oil — is cold-pressed from the seeds of rosehips, the fruit of certain varieties of rose bushes.
Rosehip seed oil is not the same thing as rose water or rose oil. Nope. Those come from the flowers and are beautifully scented. But that’s not what’s going on here. Rosehip seed oil does not smell at all like roses. In fact, it has a nearly neutral scent.
Why is rosehip oil good for skin?
Rosehip seed oil works wonders in making our skin and lips soft, smooth, and ready to take on the world.
Rosehip seed oil is packed with Vitamins A, C, and E, which are reported to help calm skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and even out skin tone. Vitamin A, in particular, helps with cellular turnover (so skin looks fresher.) Vitamin C promotes collagen production, which plumps and firms the skin.
And let's not forget the subtle radiance this oil brings to skin and lips. Rosehip seed oil contains anti-inflammatory fatty acids, which help keep your skin's natural barrier healthy and moisturized. Many people report rosehip seed oil helps reduce redness and inflammation. Some say it helps reduce the appearance of scars.
It’s also a light, gentle oil that can be used on the skin daily. (Although, as with any new ingredient, you should test it first on a tiny patch of skin to make sure you’re not allergic or otherwise irritated by it.)
Is rosehip oil good in lip balm?
Rosehip seed oil’s nourishing properties give lips a healthy, natural glow, making them look and feel irresistibly kissable. It's like a little touch of magic that boosts our confidence and adds a hint of allure to our smiles.
In our Bare lip balm, we enjoy that rosehip seed oil makes the balms feel as smooth as silk and deeply moisturizing. Plus it gives the balm a rich golden color.
We also find that when combined with the other ingredients, including jojoba and cocoa butter, the balm creates a lasting feeling of moisture. (No re-applying 50 times a day!)
And no, in case you’re wondering, rosehip seed oil does not stain or tint your skin or lips!
Can I use Stewart & Claire Bare lip balm on my face?
Absolutely! What’s great about this unscented lip balm is that you can use it on other skin, especially if it’s in need of extra moisture. Because it’s so rich and contains wax, we don’t recommend applying it to skin that’s prone to breakouts. But it’s perfect for rubbing on your cheeks or anywhere that feels extra dried out or chapped, especially in the winter.
