Description: Extra Virgin Rosehip Carrier Oil has a high content of Vitamin E and essential fatty acids. This oil is of the highest quality, and Extra Virgin means that it was produced from the first pressing of the seeds.
Color: Light amber to reddish liquid.
Aromatic Description: Typical and characteristic of some unrefined plant oils. Because it contains 77% linoleic acid (Omega 6) and a-linolenic acid (Omega 3) fatty acids, both of which have strong scents,undiluted Rosehip Oil will have a faint marine note.
Common Uses: Rosehip Oil is used in high-end creams and lotions that promote healthy skin, and it is becoming more popular with massotherapists. Having stronger properties than most vegetable oils, it is typically used as an enhancing oil in dilution (10% recommended). It is highly recommended for use in cosmetics, and hair and skin care.
Consistency: Typical and Characteristic of Carrier Oils.
Absorption: Rosehip Carrier Oil is quickly absorbed by the skin and does not leave an oily feeling.
Shelf Life: Users can expect a shelf life of up to 2 years with proper storage conditions (cool, out of direct sunlight). Refrigeration after opening is recommended. Please refer to the Certificate of Analysis for current Best Before Date.
Cautions: Rosehip Oil may aggravate acne in high concentrations, and for some individuals, it may cause sensitivity to light if it gets into their eyes.
Storage: It is recommended that cold-pressed carrier oils be kept in a cool, dark place to maintain freshness and achieve maximum shelf life. If refrigerated, bring to room temperature before using.

Rating: I have been using this product to replace my night cream and sometimes during the day also, as I try to stay away from all those chemicals. I find it super absorbent, mind you I have dry skin. Will buy it again, for sure.
Rating: Used it at 10% with meadowfoam and it made me break out :(
Used it at 7.5% with maracuja and it still made me break out :(((((
Definitely not a good recommended percentage for sensitive skin. And even diluted, the scent was still very strong which is probably what caused some of the irritation.
Probably end up just making a body oil or a rinse-off oil cleanser with it at 1-3% :/

Rating: I have been mixing this with argan and tamanu oils as a face serum and have been very very pleased! It didn't absorb as quickly as I expected based on all reports of rosehip being a "dry oil" but I don't mind at all. Will definitely buy again.

Rating: I purchased this product for my hair and skin. I found it penetrated both my skin and hair well, and the quality was very good. I would recommend it, especially if you are trying to heal and reduce the appearance of a scar.
Rating: I placed my first order from NDA which included Rose Hip Carrier oil. The packaging was good as well as the quality. I have recently ventured out to home made creams and serums. I used it in my night serum as well as the day cream. I will be putting it in my eye cream too which I plan to make in couple of weeks. To be frank I have not seen a dramatic change in my acne scars so far. I have been only using it for 2 weeks. But I definitely see a huge difference on my skin. It feels more supple and hydrated. For the first time in 4 years I went to work today without foundations. So I believe as time passes it will definitely improve my scars as well. Natural oils and products take sometime to repair the skin I heard. I plan to give an update in couple of months. I don't quite like the smell but who cares. I love what it does to the skin.
Love Love love NDA quality products. Highly recommend this supplier.
Rating: This oil is the BEST oil to be partnered with NDA's Argan oil! It doesn't feel greasy at all! I had these dark spots that had been on my forehead for like, forever, but this oil (together with Argan oil) made them disappear in just a couple of days! Wow! NDA's oils are truly top-notch!

Rating: Yes!!!!! Thank you for selling this extra virgin red beauty in 100ml size :) I have been waiting a long time for this :) I cannot wait to apply this to my scars (keloid type). I plan on making a cream with this to stretch the product to out & using it neat initially just to see how well this works :)..... I will update once I try it

Rating: Have been using this oil with added vitamin e oil and rose EO as a night serum all winter, and my aging skin has been beautifully hydrated. It has also helped (applied directly) with dry, sensitive skin on my legs.

Rating: Just purchased the extra virgin Rosehip oil. It arrived very fast and well protected. I used some of it in my Christmas gift hand cream and it is amazing!! I added Olive, coconut and a bit of cocoa butter and essential oils to my concoction and I use it every morning and before going to bed. My hands have never looked better. I also apply a few drops of the Rose hip oil to my skin before applying the face cream at night. My complextion looks much more even and balanced while the skin around my eyes looks so much more refreshed and rejuvinated in the mornings. Because this oil makes our skin more sensitive to light I dont forget your sun screen in the morning :) Love it!
Rating: This was one of the first items I ordered from NDA, and I'm glad I did! Beautiful tea-like smell, light and non-greasy feel, and works great applied neat on skin and hair. I've only been using it for three weeks, but it's done wonders for my dry hair and combination skin, especially in humid summer weather. One surprising, but very welcome, side effect of this oil is that it has appeared to slow down hair growth on my legs. Less shaving/waxing? Yes please!
One word of caution though, a little goes a long way. It would be great if NDA could offer the rosehip oil in smaller quantities, such as 100 or 125 ml.

Rating: I use rosehip oil on my face nightly along with essential oils & have several years.I still have a smooth skin and I am in my 7th decade!

Rating: The quality of this rosehip oil is phenomenal (at least compared to another brand I've tried). I have tried it on its own as well as in a face/body serum: it would absorb really well and give my skin a beautiful glow. Now, with the cold weather, this oil is not strong enough for my dry facial skin, but I still love using it on my body (beware, it stains white bed sheets and gives them a rancid smell over time). Also, since I started using it, a nasty scar I had has faded away. The price is equally fantastic!
Rating: I include it in my face serum. Love the price
By:Chau, Coquitlam, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 12-Dec-2012
Rating: Beautiful healing oil. I used it on my sort of scarred face after and IPL treatment to remove my brown spots. Within days all was cleared. Combine it with helichryse, lavender, tea tree and rosemary EO for a magical oil, I kid you not!
By:Manon, Rawdon, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 07-Jun-2011
Rating: I LOVE the orange hue of this oil! It's a beautiful oil that isn't overly greasy and absorbs into skin quickly and easily. I have used it in a few different recipes including a body lotion, belly oil and massage oil. I ordered the 473mL bottle and have only used 1/4 of the bottle. Will definitely be keeping this in my stock ALWAYS!!
By:Jeannette, Red Deer, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 31-Oct-2011
Rating: Thank you for offering a selection of unrefined carrier oils! It is another service that now I don't have to find somewhere else!
I first discovered rosehip oil in Chile, where it is widely recognized for its healing properties- an amazing ingredient!
By:Heather, Ottawa, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 11-Dec-2005
Rating: Very pleased.
I use this in a massage oil blend and it's such a beautiful colour.
By:Tracey, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Jan-2007
Rating: The colour of this oil is so beatiful, i'm suggest you to sell in small batch ex: 100 ml. I'm using it in all my cream.
Rating: Don't let the thin texture fool you! This oil is amazing in even in small quantities. The smell reminds me of tea- very fresh. Beautiful in body butters!
