Rosa Mosqueta is the local Chilean term for the Rosehip plant and the INCI (latin) name is the important factor. Our oil is the Rosa Rubiginosa which is the INCI name for the Chilean Rosehips used for authentic Rosehip oil. If the Rosehip oil is pure and unrefined it will have a strong fatty aroma, most people are quite happy with this as they know its healing powers are worth its weight in gold. Some Rosehip oils will be sold with an essential oil added, so the aroma is more floral, however, this can not be classed as pure if other oils are added.
Some varieties are from the Rosa Canina plant which is the Dog Rose, this does still have similar nutrients and minerals when compared to the Rosa Rubiginosa, however, I have not tried the two side by side to compare the results.
Rosehip oil used to be one of the beauty worlds best kept secrets. However, many people now share this secret and are reaping the rewards of daily use.
As Rosehip Seed oil is expensive, please be careful when purchasing the oil. For the best properties you will need to consider the following points:-
Sourced from Chile
INCI name of Rosa Rubiginosa, Rosa Canina or Rosa Mosqueta
Organic, unrefined and cold-pressed
Deep orange colour
and finally always buy from a reputable supplier.
If the above information is not available when purchasing the item, ask, as it can be an expensive error if the oil is the wrong type.
