Rosa mosqueta oil

Rosa mosqueta oil is oil derived from a Chilean rose bush called Rosa Moschata or Rosa Rubiginosa. The rose bush is native to Chile and Argentina and grows wild in the Southern slopes of the Andes Mountains. The flowers on this rose bush are pink with an orange, red seed pod. The seeds of this rose bush are pressed to obtain a yellow-reddish oil which is very high in vitamin C and Vitamin A which is also known as retinol. Rosa mosqueta oil is also high in the essential fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6 which are known as EFAs. EFAs are also found in fish oils. Strangely enough, Rosa mosqueta oil also has a slightly fishy odor. Essential fatty acids help the body to produce prostaglandin. Prostaglandins are used by the body to repair skin tissue. Many health and beauty products use this oil as an active ingredient to help keep the skin smooth and wrinkle free and free of acne, dermatitis and eczema. The seeds from the rosa moschata flower should not be confused with Rosehips. Rosehips are derived from a different species of rose plant. Rosa mosqueta oil is also not an essential oil. Essential oils are made from the petals or leaves, not the seeds of a plant.

Two researches, one from the Faculty of Pharmacology and Biochemistry at UNMSM in Lima and the other one from the University of Missouri, were the first ones to identify that this oil also contains Retinoic acid in 1983. The Retinoic acid is a derivative of Retinol or Vitamin A. This substance has been named Tretinoin and so far has only been found in the rosa mosqueta seeds. Retinol and Tretinoin, plus the essential fatty acids in rosa mosqueta oil, can help make the skin look more youthful and healthier because it regenerates and rejuvenates the skin.

It is said that the Chilean peoples knew of the skin rejuvenating properties of rosa mosqueta oil for centuries, but have kept it a closely guarded secret until the two above researches found and identified its properties. The research and studies done on this oil has resulted in it now being used worldwide by the medical community to help treat scarring from burns, acne scars sagging and dry skin, surgical scars, etc. The people of South America had already been using it for centuries. It is used by many cosmetic companies now in Asia, Europe and North and South America.

All it takes is a few drops of rosa mosqueta oil massaged into the skin when you first get up in the morning and just before bedtime at night to bring about remarkable results. Rosa mosqueta oil begins working with the first application; however you may not be able to see results until up to six weeks later after continued usage. This oil is especially beneficial in treating stretch marks, age spots and minor cuts.

People who have disfiguring scar tissue that they would like to get rid of can use rosa mosqueta oil. Using this oil is inexpensive, non invasive and an effective alternative treatment for disfiguring scar tissue. With daily use of the oils scars will become softer and less noticeable. Individuals who have scars from acne and pits can use this oil to help smooth out the skin and diminish acne scaring. Women who use this oil comment that from the moment they first use it on their skin they know there is something different about it. Skin appears to come alive and the natural color and elasticity comes back. Age spots fade and fine lines and wrinkles disappear. The oil will not clog pores or cause allergic reactions for anyone. It is safe to use on infants and children. People who have undergone surgery can generally start using rosa mosqueta oil as soon as their stitches are removed.
