Each oil starts somewhere – a carrier to correct, a botanical to relax, or a composition to scent. If I were to reset the blog and start with basics, my first post would have been the holy grail of oils, the 14-time award winning, certifiably tested Trilogy Organic Rosehip Oil ($24).
The fix-it-all elixir has earned its prime spot among organic fiends and huile lovers alike for its simplicity. Frankly, the only thing you’ll find bottled up is 100% organic Rosehip oil. No scented essences to tickle and no Vitamin E to preserve. And, that’s because the antioxidant rich oil is heavy with Vitamins A & E, which both help to fight free radical damage, promote new cell growth, improve skin elasticity, regenerate skin cells, slow down premature aging, reduce the formation of wrinkles, and reduce scarring. The voluptuous Rosehip is also comprised of an exceptionally high amount of Linoleic (47%) and Linolenic (33%) essential fatty acids, supporting the skin’s elasticity and keeping it well-hydrated. And, if you’re one to question a brand's 'clinical' claims (Trilogy's results have the proven science behind them, by the way), than this study will offers ample proof for the merits of natural Vitamin A, which has proven to act much like the veritable skin-hero retinol (which is an anti-aging must) without the secondary effects of irritation. Of course, consistently is key.
The oil is the epitome of how a natural element brings an airy lightness to skin. It smells of nothing and blends into skin’s contours on the spot, which makes it ideal to use on its own or mixed with your favourite cream. It's even light enough to use as an under eye serum. Purists will take to heart not only the radically simplified formulation (surely not to irritate even the most sensitive of skins), but also the organic spirit with which Trilogy harvests the oil from the mountainous regions of Chile.
Luminous in its bare simplicity & freshness, Trilogy offers the perfect starter oil for anyone looking to try to quench thirsty skin.
