*Organically produced ingredient. Natural constituent of essential oils listed.
The main ingredient is the Wild Rose/Rosehip Seed Oil contains Vitamin A (Retinol) and Vitamin C which is an excellent antioxidant and so helps to prevent free radical damage. Wild Rose oil also contains essential fatty acids which help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, hydrate, heal (e.g scars, stretch marks), repair and regenereate the skin. It also helps to reduce sun spots and sun damage.
As you can see Neal's Yard Wild Rose Beauty Balm also contains other emollients: Shea Butter, Hemp Seed, Starflower oil and a blend of natural organic essential oils. If you apply the balm as a leave on product (e.g moisturiser) the essential oils will be absorbed into your bloodstream. This means that the essential oils will have additional therapeutic value above and beyond those of using them topically on the surface of the skin. This is one of the main reasons I love using skin care and body products from Neal's Yard as they contain essential oils which have powerful holistic health properties.
