12 Skin Benefits of Rose & Rosehip Extracts

With quarantine in full swing and warmer weather on its way, what better time to perfect your summer skincare routine? Sure, a good highlight-bronzer combo will give you the summer glow you’re looking for, but real glow starts at the skin-care level, before the makeup. You know that here at withSimplicity we LOVE our ingredients, so let’s talk about two of our favorites: rose & rosehip. Believe it or not they’re actually two completely different ingredients, but they both work wonders for your skin.

Let’s start with rose- the beautiful flower we all know and love. Rose can be found in:

    Rose Lip Balm | withSimplicity
    Pro-Age Toner | withSimplicity

    As far as ingredients go, rose comes in a few different forms: rose flower oil, rose flower powder, rose petal, and so on. No matter what form it comes in, rose is packed with benefits for your skin, including:

    • Hydration
    • Blemish and acne treatment
    • Reduce the signs of aging
    • Reduce the appearance of scars
    • Reduce the symptoms of skin conditions like eczema and rosacea
    • Aromatherapy: reducing stress, improving sleep, and releasing anxiety

    So if that’s rose, you’re probably wondering, “Then what is rosehip?” Rosehips are the berry-like fruits that grow on various types of wild roses, particularly in the colder months after the rose flowers have died off. Look familiar?


    Rosehip can be found in: 

    Under Eye Elixir | withSimplicity

    Pore Minimizing Face Primer | withSimplicity

    Hydra Lift Pro-Age Sheet Mask | withSimplicity  

    The ingredient rosehip is extracted from the seeds of wild rose plants, and comes in both a powder and an oil. Similar to rose, rosehip is jam packed with benefits for your skin, which include:

    • Protecting your skin from environmental stressors such as chemicals, pollutants, and harsh weather
    • Reducing inflammation, redness, and irritation
    • Rich source of vitamins (A,E, & D), nutrients, and antioxidants
    • Added moisture and hydration
    • Fighting stretch marks 
    • Brighten the skin
