Rosehip seed oil has gotten a lot of attention lately for its anti-aging moisturizing properties, but it’s far from a new discovery. I originally posted on rosehip seed oil last year. Back in 1983, researchers in Chile began studying it as a natural source of trans-retinoic acid, (vitamin A). If […]
