I started using Fushi’s rosehip oil on my youngest son when he was very little, he is now 8 years old. He had extremely severe eczema all over his face, in the nooks and crannies of his arms and legs. This oil has honestly has done the best. I would apply the oil straight to his skin after his bath and sealed it in moisturiser from the GP. His skin looks so much better and there is no eczema in sight, apart from a patch here and there. It is honestly an amazing product and I cannot rate it enough! It’s a cult favourite within my family too! I use it, my youngest son uses it, my eldest son uses it and my 16 year old daughter uses it and LOVES it.
I LOVE adding a drop if Rosehip oil into my foundation as it provides much more hydration throughout the day and my skin looks flawless. I love using it at night and when I wake up in the morning my skin feels amazing and moisturised and dry patches are reduced-
Just no white bed sheets as that strong orange colour does travel a bit!
This oil is definitely one of my ‘holy grail’ products which I cannot live without I absolutely love this product and will be continuing to buying it forever.
Dear Fatima, thank you for your message. For your type of skin Almond oil is ok -- its comedogenic level is 2 out of 5, it means it's not going to clog your pores. If you are looking for something even lower on that scale, you should go for Argan, Rosehip, Grapeseed, Hemp -oil which are 0-1. I hope this helps.
Hello Fushi , I bought a bottle of sweet almond oil. but I noticed the manufactured date is 2018 with expiry on Jan 2021. Would the oil be good enough to use especially if its expiring in four months time. Can I use it past its expiry date.
Hello, I recently purchased the pomegranate seed oil as I have a lot of redness due to my acne.can I apply directly or do I need to dilute it with any other oil? Also where I live many essential oils are not available. The other oil I have is rosehip. Can I mix these two?
Hello Asma, Thank you for your message. Being a carrier oil, Pomegranate oil is safe to apply on the skin without dilution. However, because of its richness it is often used at dilutions of approximately 5-15% in skincare formulations. Combining Rosehip oil and pomegranate oil will give you a deeply nourishing blend of particularly antioxidant- and vitamin rich oils. It may also support scars, wrinkles and premature ageing. Hope this helps.
Hello Tina, Thank you for your message. Our oils comes in dark glass bottles which protects from heat, light and any oxidation. If your oil was stored in a cool, dark place away from any sunlight it should be completely fine to use it since the expiry is in 2021. Hope this helps.
Hello, I just started using this oil on my face recently but I have noticed the oil just sits on my skin and is not completely absorbed. Any suggestions on how I can prevent that? Can this oil be mixed with any other oil?
Hello Carina,Thank you for your message.I would recommend to use a tiny amount of the oil for it to be properly absorbed since they are highly concentrated products. Just 2 to 3 drops is more than enough. The trick to proper application is to warm the oil with your fingertips and then gently pat them over your skin. You could try to apply a little moisturiser afterwards to help absorption of the oil quicker. However, note that moisturiser should be applied first this is just a trick for reapplying a bit more moisturiser to help. Also, oil not being properly absorbed is a sign that you have dead skin clogging your pores. Using an exfoliator such as our Bioedic enzyme face wash to help exfoliate the skin and remove dead skin will help open up pores properly, the oil will be much better absorbed. https://www.fushi.co.uk/biovedictm-enzyme-face-wash-150ml.htmlHope this helps.Please do let me know if you need any further assistanceBest wishes,
Hi, I have been using rosehip oil for some time. I had my bottle open on the basin as I washed my face and I think a little bit of water might have splashed in. Can the oil go bad? Is it still safe to use?
Hi Sara, thank for your message! It will be completely fine to use :) The only way the oil will go rancid is if it is stored in sunlight and becomes oxidized. Please make sure to store the oil away from sunlight, in a cool dark cupboard. Hope this helps. Best Wishes, Fushi
Thanks for your message! Rosehip can be used around the eyes. Rosehip seed oil is loaded with skin-nourishing vitamins and essential fatty acids which may help with dark circles and lines. Best Wishes, Fushi
Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
