Organic Cold Pressed Rosehip Oil


Part 1

In 1978 Dr Fabiola Carvajal, M.D. of the microbiology department at Concepcion University in Santiago, Chile tested natural rosehip oil in clinical dermatological tests.

"The results were superb using Rosehip Oil and Cream in all our clinical studies, even with scars over 20 years old and with patients who had not improved using other therapies.Burns (including UV damaged skin and radiation burns), chronic ulcerations of the skin (such as that with papaplegics and bedridden invalids), skin grafts, brown spots, prematurely aging skin, dry skin: all benefited with Rosehip Oil."

More studies were carried out in 1988 at the University of San Marcos, Lima, Peru

Dr KehI took part in the effort in his capacity of Visiting Professor at the San Marcos University.

Drs Pareja and Kehl, successfully isolated trans-retinoic acid, a Vitamin A acid, as the component responsible for the remarkable skin rejuvenating properties of rose hip oil.

Below is extracts from the paper.

Changes produced on skin by the action of the sun, i.e., photoaging (dermatoheliosis) are very common in all countries of warm climate. Exposure to sun causes important morfological changes in skin. Dermatoheliosis appears in different ways and varying intensity ranging from surface wrinkles, active keratosis and variation in the distribution of the melanin granules.

For this test volunteers were selected among people who usually spend the 3 months of summer in resorts by the sea or who go to the beach every day. The tests were carried out on 20 women aged between 25 and 35 who were controlled and assessed during the summer of 1988. The most frequently noted cutaneous signs were surface wrinkles, brown spots, eyelids and, in some cases, only an intense tan. All applied rose hip oil on the face during four months (May to August, Autumn 1988).

Observations were made every eight days. Significant changes were noted starting on the third week. Firstly, surface wrinkles started to disappear, spots started to fade until, at the end of the fourth month, the disappearance was complete. Skin presented a smooth and fresh aspect and the spots had almost disappeared.

For this test we used scars that had equal features. Ten women, aged between 45 and 68, were selected who had suffered unilateral or bilateral mastectomy.
Applications of rose hip oil were made, starting on the day when the surgical stitches were removed. After washing the area with tepid water and soap and careful drying, the oil was applied by soft massage. After three months of applying twice daily (morning and evening) it was noted that the scars were less apparent, without lumps and that skin elasticity had improved and the colour of the area had improved significantly.

We carried out these observations until four months after the operations and the treating doctors indicated that the skin conditions were improving considerably, allowing implantation of prosthesis or plastic surgery in far better conditions than with patients who had not been treated.
