With a bevy of A-lister beauties including Rose Byrne, Kate Middleton, Miranda Kerr, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley claiming to be fans, there’s little wonder that rosehip oil has become a must-have product in women’s beauty regimes around the globe. But while many of us are aware about the incredible skincare benefits of this wonder oil, one thing that might come as a surprise is that there are different grades of rose hip oil available on the market.
Just like olive oil comes in multiple grades, from the super cheap that you’d rather leave on the shelf to the one you’d happily drizzle on everything, rose hip oil varies in quality. “They all look the same, they all tend to do the same thing, but there is a difference between higher grades. Like with olive oil, we know that there is an extra virgin, there’s a first press, and there’s one that can be really cheap that has been extracted with a chemical. There are all different grades of vegetable oil, so why wouldn’t there be different grades of rose hip oil?” says Kosmea founder Marie Kapetanakis.
