The Wild Musk Rose is closely related to the Wild Rose that grows in North America. It grows in the wild on the American continent, especially in Chile and in Andes where Nature is very pure and unpolluted. It gives fruits (rosehips) which are extremely rich in vitamin C. The exquisite rose oil extracted from the seeds of these fruits is a key ingredient in quality cosmetics and has proven to be a real Elixir of Youth for the skin. This is due to its very peculiar composition: it contains 80% of poly-unsaturated fatty acids (also called Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs)) of which 44% of linoleic acid (or omega-3 EFA) and 36% of alpha-linolenic acid (omega-6 EFA). These two crucial EFAs usually come from two different sources (plants and fish or different plants like borage oil and flax seed oil) and are indispensable to cellular regeneration and epidermal suppleness. Moreover, these EFAs are present in Wild Musk Rose oil in a perfectly balanced high concentration.
Scientists doing clinical research on the Wild Musk Rose oil discovered that when applied regularly on scars and burns, it was very surprisingly healing and regenerating the skin: the scars and burns were either attenuated or even erased. This deep therapeutic effect of the oil was attributed to transretinoic acid (also called retinol or acid vitamin A) which is a very active form of vitamin A. This form of Vitamin A is frequently prescribed in dermatology in case of skin problems like acne and has to be used very cautiously because it may be a source of serious allergies and rashes. However, in Wild Musk Rose oil, the EFAs and other components which naturally perfectly balanced this very active regenerating skin vitamin. Thus, natural transretinoic acid in Wild Musk Rose oil has the same beneficial effects than its pure synthetic form without the negative side effects. The result is that unlike many cosmetic products, the Wild Musk Rose oil does not erase skin imperfections superficially, but acts in depth by delivering elements indispensable to skin cells.
