Rosa Canina Fruit Oil has a high content of unsaturated and essential fatty acids- oleic, linoleic and linolenic- which are important for the maintenance of healthy skin. The presence of natural retinoic acid has also been demonstrated, accounting for the reduction of the appearance of scarring and wrinkles observed in a 1983 university study.
