A fruit of the rose plant, Rosehip Oil is a natural skin care ingredient with remarkable skin-rejuvenating properties.

In this post we explore the benefits of Rosehip Oil skin care for your face – from reducing the signs of ageing to skin repair and barrier support.

Whilst Rosehip Oil is famously used as a standalone facial oil, this rejuvenating ingredient can also enhance the rest of your skin care routine. 

We introduce some of our favourite Rosehip beauty products – including cleanser, facial oil and moisturiser – and explain the extra benefits of our certified organic Rosehip Oil.

Rosehip Oil skin care benefits

A natural beauty ingredient, Rosehip Oil is gentle on sensitive skin and suitable for all skin types.

Benefits of using Rosehip Oil skin care products for your face include:

  • Skin barrier health: Rosehip Oil is rich in vitamins E, C and A and is also especially high in the Omega-6 essential fatty acid Linoleic acid. These nourishing properties make Rosehip oil ideal for supporting a healthy skin barrier repair.
  • Age prevention: Rosehip Oil has skin rejuvenating properties that makes it a great ingredient for helping to reduce signs of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Skin repair: Rosehip Oil has reparative properties that have helped earn it a reputation for encouraging the healing of burns, scars and stretch marks. Rosehip Oil may also help counteract some of the damaging effects of sun exposure.

At Green People, our organic skin care products contain organic Rosehip Oil which is grown with respect for the environment and cold-pressed to preserve its purity.



One Balm: The Rosehip rescue balm

Rosehip Oil’s reparative properties make it ideal for use in soothing skin care and One Balm is a multi-purpose Rosehip beauty balm that all skin types can enjoy.

Suitable for use as a lip balm or rescue balm for dry skin anywhere, One Balm blends Rosehip Oil with Myrrh and Pomegranate Oils to help encourage skin repair.

This skin-calming balm also uses Perilla, an oil that has high levels of Omega-3 fatty acids and is especially useful for repairing compromised skin.

Incorporate Rosehip into your facial skin care collection with our Rosehip skin care routines.

Follow the daytime Rosehip skin care routine

Step 1: Plump and purify

This organic cream cleanser is rich in Rosehip Oil and leaves skin beautifully soft.

Our Age Defy+ Purify & Hydrate Cream Cleanser is a great Rosehip face wash for mature skin.

Its hero ingredient is Hibiscus, an exotic plant extract that helps to conceal the visible signs of ageing by firming and lifting skin. It also has a spa-like aroma that’s provided by precious plant oils from Ylang Ylang, Juniper, Mandarin and Lavender.


Ideal for daily use and for removing make-up, its 5-star reviews praise the way it melts in effortlessly to leave skin feeling fresh, soft and hydrated.

Step 2: Hydrate & protect

Rosehip is one of the rejuvenating plant actives used in Age Defy+ Daily SPF30 Moisturiser, a Rosehip-enriched moisturiser with added SPF and skin support for mature skin.



Offering high factor protection against skin-ageing sun damage, this moisturiser also contains Beech Bud, a plant that’s been shown to increase skin hydration by as much as 30%.

Much like Rosehip, Beech Bud has benefits for slowing the visible signs of ageing, such as skin sagging.

Studies have found it to help strengthen the skin’s structure and our cosmetic scientists were particularly impressed by a clinical trial that showed Beech Bud provided a 10% reduction of wrinkles over a four-week period.


Follow the evening Rosehip skin care routine

Step 1: Cleanse & hydrate

Cleanse with Age Defy+ Purify & Hydrate Cream Cleanser and then smooth on Age Defy+ Brightening Moisturiser, a rich Rosehip night cream that can be used day and night to firm and hydrate.

A great night cream for those prone to dry skin and age spots, in addition to Rosehip, this organic skin cream uses a bespoke blend of Cucumber Seed, White Mulberry Bark and Hibiscus Flower.

These ingredients work in synergy and help to fade fine lines by binding moisture into the skin. They also target hyperpigmentation to promote an even skin tone.

Step 2: Repair

For an instant skin glow, apply a few drops of our natural and organic Age Defy+ Cell Enrich Facial Oil following your night cream.

Entirely water free, this skin-conditioning Rosehip facial oil is certified organic and supports evening time skin repair with a blend of cold-pressed plant oils including Rosehip, Evening Primrose and Blackcurrant.

Elegantly scented with Palmarosa Oil and Ylang Ylang, it also provides great slip for Gua Sha facial massage.
