A Beautiful Oil From a Beautiful Place.
INCI: Rosa Rubiginosa Seed Oil (aka Mosqueta Oil)
As some of you may know, Oh, Oh now represents Sustainable Botanicals Int’l (SBI), an
innovative company operating out of Chile. They are focused on identifying and producing
unique botanical products that are sustainable and support indigenous communities. The first product they’ve launched is organic virgin rosehip seed oil.
The Story Jay Ewald of SBI has made contracts with multiple indigenous communities in Patagonia. This supports the communities and the land. The people have a reliable revenue stream and the land stays untouched other than an annual hand harvest of the
rose hips – sustaining people and land. (Plus most of this collection work is managed by women –Patagonian Boss Ladies!).
Our Rosehip oil is the highest quality available. We’re nerds so we tested the SBI oil against
another sellers’ oil. We tested the fatty acid profiles of each sample and the difference was very clear. The picture below shows the color difference and our tests verified the quality difference.
The SBI oil is the real deal. The other stuff – well…it is hard to know for sure.
We love that our partners are committed to quality and transparency. And they love that we know the best labs in the country. Trust but verify!
Confession: I love this stuff, it went home with me…
This gorgeous oil is available now. Please let us know if you are interested in a sample.
