My Certified Organic Rosehip Oil smells/looks different to the last one that I purchased, is there something wrong with it?

At Kosmea we take great pride in sourcing the finest rose hip oil in the world, which comes from a certified organic source where no fertilisers or pesticides are used. Our oil has a natural earthy smell, as we use fruit, skin and the seed of the rose hip to extract our oil. It is the outer casing of the rose hip that is rich with the antioxidant lycopene, which gives our oil that beautiful, rich amber colour. To ensure we give our customers a rose hip oil rich in its natural vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids, we have chosen to have minimal intervention in its production. Therefore, we do not bleach, colour, or deodorise our oil to make it more commercially attractive. As we choose not to intervene with nature it does mean that as a result of seasonal climate and crop changes, our organic rose hip oil may vary slightly in colour, aroma and texture. We guarantee you that the quality and performance of the product is unaffected and your rose hip oil is exactly as nature intended.

What can I use on my baby to keep their skin hydrated?

Kosmea Certified Organic Rosehip Oil can be used babies from birth to keep their skin nourished and healthy. Massaged into baby's damp skin it is easily absorbed and non-greasy. As a natural source of essential fatty acids and vitamins it moisturises and replenishes the skin, helping to protect it from dryness and itchiness. Other products that can be used on babies include our Rescue Balm, Rescue Body Cream, Muslin Cloth, Facial Cleansing Wipes, and Hydrating Rosewater Mist. 

Your rosehip oil contains vitamin A, can I still use it during pregnancy?

We recommend Kosmea Certified Organic Rosehip Oil during and after pregnancy, as it may help in maintaining skin elasticity, help to restore skin moisture and help to minimise the appearance of stretch marks. Kosmea Certified Organic Rosehip Oil is a fruit oil and can be used on both mother and baby at anytime. The vitamin A in our oil is naturally occurring, just as it is in the fruit and vegetables we eat every day, and is safe to use during pregnancy.

Can I still use your Certified Organic Rosehip Oil, now that I use the Eighth Natural Wonder™?

Yes you can! At Kosmea we have developed a skincare range that has no hard and fast rules. Our promise is to make skincare as natural and uncomplicated as possible. If you are a current user of Kosmea's Certified Organic Rose Hip Oil and you are happy with the results you are getting then we recommend you continue to use it. If you want to use both products, we recommend first applying the oil to damp skin and allowing it to absorb and then applying Kosmea Eighth Natural Wonder Revitalising Facial Serum for the added anti-ageing and firming benefits of hibiscus extract.

Are Kosmea products gluten free?

All Kosmea products are gluten free. 

Does Kosmea Moisturising Lotion SPF 30 contain nano particles?

Kosmea sunscreen does not contain nano particles, we use purely micronized zinc and therefore it makes Kosmea a purely natural physical sunscreen.
