A species of grass, rice is the world’s third largest crop. The bran, called “nuka” in Japan, is a moist inner oily layer of the rice plant and often produced as a by-product of milling in the production of the refined grain. Rice bran has some constituents that make it quite unique including: the nourishing emollient squalene, the potent antioxidant gamma oryzanol, and a rich amount of four forms of tocotrienols plus tocopherol (vitamin E). Other active constituents include: the phospholipids - phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylethanaolamine, and phosphatidylinositol - and high amounts of oleic and linoleic acids. Rice bran has been highly acclaimed for centuries in helping to create the flawless skin attributed to Japanese women. It is a gentle exfoliant and skin softener that also prevents wrinkles, quickly heals blemishes, absorbs dirt and oil from pores, balances sebum production and moisturizes.

Rosehip Seed Oil: A natural, bio-available source of vitamin A, which helps to delay the effects of skin aging, assists with cell regeneration, and supports collagen and elastin levels. Also has high amounts of polyunsaturated essential fatty acids: omega 3, 6, and 9 (important skin nutrients), also vitamin E, an important lipid-soluble antioxidant, protecting cell membranes from oxidation by removing free radicals. Other active substances are tannins, flavonoids, vitamin C and beta-carotene. Used topically to treat wrinkles and to moisturize and revitalize skin at the cellular level. Rosehip seed oil can penetrate to deeper layers of the dermis, where it invigorates the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, which establish skin firmness and elasticity.

The fruit of the rose is a berry-like structure called a rose hip. Rosehip seed oil is a good emollient and contains vitamins A, D and E, antioxidant, and is among the richest sources of vitamin C of any plant. Pure rosehip oil contains around 75% fatty acids: oleic and the EFAs linoleic and linolenic, which help maintain healthy skin and supposedly reduce the appearance of pores. Rosehip oil is the only vegetable oil to contain natural tretinoin, a derivative of retinol (vitamin A) at ~125mcg per every 100g, which replenishes and helps rebuild skin tissue and is great for acne. Other active constituents include: tannins, mucilage, proteins, phospholipids, fruit acids (exfoliating), sugar (exfoliating), and carotenoids. Rosehip oil is proven to delay the effects of skin aging by aiding in cell regeneration and boosting levels of collagen to create smoother, firmer skin. It can be used to strengthen weak fingernails and thin or damaged hair and has proved useful in reducing and eliminating the effects of dermatitis, eczema, fine lines, hyper-pigmentation, lumps from scarring, over-exposure to the sun, psoriasis, scarring, skin burns, stretch marks and wrinkles.
