It seems every conventional dermatologist pushes Retinol as part of the ideal skincare routine due to its ability to help with a variety of skin issues, including aging and acne. But what they don't tell you is there are natural, non-toxic, safer Retinol options available, that achieve the same results.
Let me introduce you to one of our star ingredients in our Youth Beauty Face Oil, Rosehip Oil.
Rosehip Oil, not to be confused with Rosehip Seed Oil is one of the biggest beauty secrets as it contains trans-retinoic acid, a naturally occurring form of Vitamin A. Our Rosehip Oil is the whole fruit and contains 10x more pro-vitamin A that Rosehip seed Oil.
The same active ingredient found in synthetic Retinols. This is the active ingredient that renews and regenerates skin cells and stimulates collagen production.
The synthetic from of Retinol is a very strong substance and is often applied under medical supervision with tons of hazardous, undesireable effects. Potential side effects including cancer, developmental and reproductivity toxicity, organ system toxicity and cellular level changes. These cellular changes can lead to cell death and mutations. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) scores Retinol at a 9 due to its known reproductivity toxicity concerns. Even OTC Retinols are a concern and should be used with caution.
Rosehip Oil however produces all the same skin smoothing benefits of Retinol, but without the drying, irritation, sun sensitivity and toxic side effects that come with synthetic Retinol.
Now, not all Rosehip Oils are created equal. The soil, conditions, climate, distillation and refining process matters. Our Rosehip Oil is cold pressed, obtained from the whole fruit of the Rosehip and is unrefined. It is considered a dry oil so it quickly absorbs into the skin. When you take that and our nine other plant botanicals that we obsessively formulated to create our coveted Youth beauty Face Oil, you achieve a collagen boosting oil that targets visible signs of aging and reveals a youthful, radiant, golden glow. Bringing your skin back to life!
For years the beauty industry wanted us to believe that what we desired didn't already exist in nature. The truth is, it was always there, they just couldn't trade mark it and profit from it without changing its chemical constitution.
TGS loves reminding you that nature is more than enough and when you align with her, you better align with yourself and everything in your life is able to flourish.
