Our Story

Rosa Organics Skincare Range

Rosa Organics was developed out of a sincere desire to offer women and men skincare that is truly believable, and truly effective.  Not just effective for the first 3-4 months; skincare that will work forever (or for as long as it is applied) and will genuinely slow down the rate at which the skin ages.

17 Years later suffice to say that, as far as is possible, the goal has been achieved Rosa Organics Natural and Organic oil variants do indeed fulfull the promise.  Sadly, there is no panacea on earth that will prevent ageing.  Cells die and with fewer cells kicking around, we slow down and age. “slow down” meaning that cells do not regenerate at youthful levels.  In relation to the skin, cellular renewal in young adults is every 26 – 28 days.  As we age this slows down and reflects in the appearance of the skin.

Fortunately, there are ways in which to prevent the pace at which we age.  Eating nutritional meals, exercising regularly and…. most importantly, putting on a happy smiley face each morning.  (Along with Rosa Organics oils, natch).

Our formulations have been thoroughly researched. All contain ingredients that are highly active yet at the same time gentle.  We also use the correct values (percentages) to ensure that our skin products do what we say they will do.

Rosa Organics chooses ingredients (oils and essential oils) because they are spectacular. Not because they are well priced.  I read with interest, and with some wonder at the prices commanded by skincare companies who use rather un-spectacular oils in the products they put out.  Not that these products are bad, just not as good as ours.

Rosa Oils are sourced from reputable producers and as such are ISO Certified.  Each batch of oil is evaluated at the time of pressing and is signed off by the chief chemist. These evaluations and certifications accompany our consignments.  As with all natural compounds, values differ from time to time. The same applies to essential oils. This does not effect the efficacy, it just means that the consistency and perfume may vary occasionally.

Rosanique will repair damage (scarring – accidental and acne,  dehydrated skin, sun damage) and boost cellular renewal.  With regular use the skin will firm up.  In younger skins fine lines will disappear.  In older skins fine lines will diminish and wrinkles will soften. Rosanique is an essential for all ages.  However, because the cellular process is enhanced it is necessary to exfoliate regularly.  A good cotton facecloth is a good daily exfoliator, with a proper exfoliation once a week, at least.

What will be of interest to people suffering from adult acne, is that Rosanique is excellent for treating acne.  The *Linoleic Acid (at 41-51%) and Trans Retinoic Acid are responsible for this. With regular use over a period of 4 – 6 months**, a considerable improvement will be noted.

Rosanique contains the two essential fatty acids (Linoleic and Linolenic) in high concentrations. It also contains Oleic Acid (firming) Vitamin B, Trans Retinoic Acid (a powerful form of natural vitamin A) Lycopene, Tocopherols (Vitamin E)

Rosanique can be applied to the eye contour area.  It will perform wonders.

* An article published in Kosmetik International in 2003 discusses the merits of Linoleic and Retinoids in treating acne vulgaris. **trials with Linoleic acid show improvements of 60% in just 28 days”

Rosa Protégé is a new generation day treatment that breaks boundaries. It provides moderate (day to day) protection from the sun, moisturises, helps to prevent the loss of moisture – it boosts the outer layer of the epidermis which is protective. Rosa Protégé has regenerative and firming properties, It is a very powerful antioxidant. It assists in the production of collagen and prevents its loss.  In our opinion we do not know of one other “moisturiser” that comes anywhere close to Rosa Protégé.

Rosa Protégé contains Palmitic Acid, Oleic Acid (firming at 60 – 70%) Stearic, Gadoleic, b-carotine, Vitamin C, Vitamin B, Tocopherols – Vitamin E, Phystosterols, Polyphenols (which have UV absorbing compounds) and Palmitoleic Acid (Omega 7)

Rosa for Men has a similar formulation to Rosanique, in addition to Rosehip Seed Oil it contains Cucumber Seed Oil. This latter is packed with phytosterols, Vitamin C, Tocopherols and Tocotrienols.  These last two are Vitamin E compounds.  Rosa for Men is good for all skin types. Studies done in Germany several years ago found that pytosterols have potent anti-ageing properties.

Rosa Silhouette will firm, tone and moisturise the skin. It has regenerative and healing properties. Rosa Silhouette can be used by women of all ages.  It is a firm favourite with golfers or anyone who has an active outdoor life. And is very popular with busy women and mothers who just do not have the time to pamper themselves. Rosa Silhouette is pretty much a “one fits all”. It will repair, assist in the production of collagen, and will prevent moisture loss.  It can be used on the face*, neck, décolletage, upper arms, and abdomen.  It is excellent for repairing stretch marks but because it has high levels of Vitamin A (Trans Retinoic Acid and Beta Carotene) it should be applied after pregnancy.  Not during.  It offers moderate protection from the sun. However a sunscreen should be applied if long periods are to be spent in the sun.                 * Due to the high percentage of Oleic Acid, people with active acne should avoid using Rosa Silhouette on their faces.

Rosa Silhouette contains Organic Rosehip Seed Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Frankincense and Carrot Seed Essential Oils.  Carrot Seed Essential Oil is high in Vitamin A, and provides natural protection against the sun.  It is known for its skin rejuvenating properties. Frankincense is a superior essential oil that is excellent for all skin types.  It has anti ageing properties. The Apricot Kernel Oil in Rosa Silhouette offers the following benefits: [Apricot kernel oil] nourishes the skin to decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improves skin tone, and increases skin radiance. It also has antiseptic, antibacterial, and antioxidant effects, which can help to heal blemishes and protect against environmental damages.  

Rosa Perfection

This superb product contains Organic Rosehip  Seed Oil, Cucumber Seed Oil, Frankincense and Rose Essential Oil.  It is light textured and may be used in the entire eye contour.  It is rapidly absorbed and will not clog the tear ducts. Rosa Perfection will soften wrinkles, prevent the “hollow eye syndrome” that comes with age. Remove fine lines and lighten dark circles.

And this ends the dialogue about Rosa Organics. For Now.  Rosa Organics truly is an excellent brand.  And not just because I say so.  It is what it is.  The very best (and one of the first) in natural oil skin care… in this country.
