Does This Natural Alternative To Retinol Really Work?

You may have heard of Retinol. It's the ultimate and incredibly popular skincare product that manages to slow down the process of aging. However, because it’s chemically formulated and can often irritate the skin, people are now beginning to look for natural alternatives. But do they exist?

Well, here at Organica we believe that the best answers are found in mother nature and not in a laboratory, and that just as effective products can be 100% natural. 

But first, what's a retinol?

Retinol is a derivative of vitamin A and is an incredibly powerful topical ingredient. It helps to promote skin renewal and enhance collagen production in the skin, fighting premature aging and diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. 

How does it work?

As we grow older, the collagen in our skin begins to break down, which is why we develop wrinkles. Collagen is the protein which makes our skin plump and youthful, so to encourage your skin to produce more means it will slow down the aging process.

Not only that, but vitamin A and C act as antioxidants, which help fight free-radicals such as UV rays and pollution, to prevent premature aging. So, retinols not only help boost collagen, but they can protect your skin from further damage (though when it comes to UV rays, it’s still important to wear sunscreen).

The ultimate retinol alternative...

One of our favorite and most powerful natural retinol alternatives is Rosehip Oil, an effective formula packed with Vitamin A and C to boost your collagen levels, hydrate your skin, correct hyper-pigmentation and fight free-radicals. It’s 100% natural and remains gentle on even the most sensitive of skin.

This wonder ingredient has the power of the chemically formulated retinol despite being 100% natural. Because it’s full of vitamin C and A, it stimulates collagen production in the skin, and fights the collagen break down that leads to premature aging - exactly the same way chemical retinols do! It’s a safer and natural way of making the skin plumper and keep those fine lines at bay.

Vitamins A and C are also antioxidants, meaning they help protect the skin from free-radicals (those harmful molecules that come from UV rays and pollution) that gradually age your skin. So for all you city dwellers, having vitamin A & C in your routine is a must.

As well as Rosehip Oil’s ability to directly reverse signs of aging and fight free radicals, it also gently hydrates your skin and works as an anti-inflammatory for acne -prone or irritated skin.

How to pick the best 

The most important thing to note when choosing a Rosehip Oil is how pure it is. Not all oils are made equal, and often the ones on the market contain added additives and emulsifiers which can reduce their effectiveness, leading to some unwanted side effects (like skin sensitivity). Our oil is 100% organic, cold-pressed Rosehip Seed Oil. You can’t get much purer than that!

How to use it

Cleanse your face and pat dry. Apply 2-3 drops to the palm of your hand, then use your fingertips to gently massage into your face. For best results apply twice daily.
