Hexane extracted, heat treated and refined rose hip seed oil.

Unrefined cold pressed rose hip seed oil is orange and has a distinct rose hip aroma. This one is clear and has no aroma, which proves that it has been refined and altered by heat. Even though it retains some of its moisturizing properties, it has been stripped of many of the nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants that cold pressed rose hip seed oil is valued for. It looks like it has been hexane extracted, which makes it even dangerous. Hexane is a known carcinogen and considered a hazardous substance by the EPA. Sodium hydroxide and sodium carbonate altering the natural integrity and composition of rose hip seed oil might have been added. Its clear color is the result of it having been exposed to extreme temperatures during the refining process which destroys the naturally occurring essential saturated and unsaturated fatty acids and proteins that are so beneficial in unrefined cold pressed rose hip seed oil. It's no longer hypoallergenic and safe for all skin types, it's no longer rich in the naturally occurring in raw shea butter vitamins A, C and E, powerful antioxidants, as well as linoleum and linolenic fatty acids, it no longer possesses the nourishing, protective, soothing, healing, anti-inflammatory, regenerative and rejuvenating properties of unrefined rose hip seed oil. Won't order it again.

I prefer Aura Cacia for facial rose hip seed oil. I felt the difference instantly when I used other brands but not this one. Also I don't like the container of this one, it's hard to get the oil out.

...price is great but to be honest, not the best product if wanting to avoid pimples etc. Rose hip seed oil is known to cause acne or pimples on sensitive skin, so please take that into concideration if wanting to treat your facial skin. Still a quality product.

Moisturising but too heavy

I found this oil too heavy for everyday use on the face as it did not absorb into the skin well. Although it is quite cheap and lasts a long time as a little bit goes a long way.
