ROSA MOSCHATA SEED OIL
The rosehip shrub is a tall shrub with overhanging branches and crescent-shaped spines. The leaves are pinnate, the flowers are on smooth short stalks and are pink. The red, round to oval and inside hairy rose hips are actually only the fleshy fruit container. The actual rosehip fruits are the edgy, bright and rocky nuts, which are located in the rose hips.
How rosehip oil is produced:
It is obtained by cold or hot pressing of the rosehip seeds. That is why it is also called rosehip seed oil. Subsequently the oil is filtered and refined. Rosehip oil (rosehip seed oil) is a yellow to a red oil, with sweet and sour, nutty-fruity odor and characteristic flavor.
We produce rosehip seed oil ourselves and use the process of cold pressing. That means it is not heated during the process. Because of the hard rosehip seeds, a considerable rise in temperature on the press head occurs. The rosehip seed oil, however, is not affected by this, since this already exits through the so-called strainer. That is why we can provide our rosehip seed oil with the attribute CP = cold pressed.
Relative composition of rosehip seed oil:
Owing to its high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids, the rosehip seed oil quickly becomes rancid. It is therefore usually stabilized by adding antioxidants such as rosemary extract or vitamin E (E306). We do not, however, dispense with the addition of antioxidants or other preservatives and ensure the freshness of our rosehip oil (rosehip seed oil) with the pressing close to the order as well as filling and storage with nitrogen.
Our Chilean rosehip oil (rosehip oil) comes from the seeds of the Rosa Moschata, which must not be mixed up with the seeds of Rosa Canina or Rosa Rubiginosa, because they have a slightly different chemical composition.
