What are the differences between Rosa Canina and Rosa Rubiginosa?

There are two common sources of Rosehip in the manufacture of Rosehip serums being Rosa Canina and Rosa Rubiginosa. We will talk a little about each of these, why they differ and why BON Natural Oils uses Rosa Rubiginosa in our world class Rosehip Serum.

We choose to use Rosa Rubiginosa as there are some key differences and advantages over Rosa Canina.  The most important differences are the higher concentrations of essential fatty acids, different nutrient base as well as lower Omega 6 and 9 in Rosa Rubiginosa.

A standout component of Rosa Rubiginosa is Trans-Retinoic Acid, this is the key to restoration and regeneration of the skin.  BON Rosehip Serum works to regenerate the skin, fading fine lines and wrinkles as well as restoring and regenerating the skin for uses such as scar reduction.

The reduced levels of Omega 9 make BON Rosehip Serum ideal for acne prone skin.

Comparing Rosa Canina and Rosa Rubiginosa

Rosa Canina

Native to Europe, North West Africa and Asia it is known for skin hydrating properties inclusive of regeneration and repair.  It contains 71% essential fatty acids and includes vitamins A, D and E.

Rosa Canina contains Omega 3, 6 and 9 with higher levels of Omega 6 and 9 than Rosa Rubiginosa.

Rosa Rubiginosa

Native to the Southern Andes in Chile and its superior levels of essential fatty acids at 78% inclusive of Trans-Retinoic Acid and Beta-Carotene.  Again containing vitamin A, C and D as well as Omega 3, 6 and 9.
