Straight from South America, musk rose oil comes from a species of rose, the Rosa Rubiginosa, also known as the Muscat rose. Its roses are white and the fruit contains seeds, which are cold-pressed to produce musk rose oil. In addition to fatty acids, especially linoleic acid, this oil is rich in vitamin A (carotenoids) and vitamin C. A real anti-ageing and regenerating solution, Pharma GDD reveals the secrets of this precious nectar.
And, unlike other varieties, musk rose does not contain essential oils. Its polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega-3, 6 and 9) and vitamins make rosehip oil a formidable anti-ageing weapon. Its repairing action accelerates cell regeneration and repairs damaged cells. Musk rose oil is used to fade acne and chicken pox scars, and to reduce stretch marks and brown spots. This oil has the particularity of not leaving an oily sensation after application.
Always choose an oil that is 100% pure and natural, first cold-pressed.
