Rose Hip: and its amazing skin benefits.



Rose hip seed oil is one of the best, most nourishing natural oils for your skin. Some may liken it to evening primrose oil for it’s healthy benefits and apparently Rose hip and Rose water, are very beneficial to ageing skin and are most suitable during menopause.

Naturally scented rose hip oil contains vitamins A, C, D and E and delivers excellent hydration to your skin, helping you to maintain the right moisture balance and oil complex. These vitamins are also known to have anti-ageing effects.

It is a great myth that putting oils on your face can make it more greasy and cause spots. Essential oils, used in the right quantities, can be applied to deliver a boost of antioxidants and are chemical free. It is the use of oils that are closest to your skin’s natural oils, such as Jojoba and Apricot oil (used in Stratum C Menopause Protect Cream) that can help to condition your skin, and provide the protection you need against the everyday stresses and strains that can cause your skin to age.

Stratum C was launched last year as a skin care range exclusively for menopausal women, following the realisation that: there weren’t any! During menopause your skin care regime can change completely whilst you have to accommodate your skins changing needs. Stratum C based their products on scientific data and brought you a solution to the decline in collagen production that many menopausal women experience due to dramatic hormone changes over an average of 5 years.  Their star products Stratum C Menopause Protect Cream and Repair Serum, which are full of collagen boosting peptides, were created for sensitive skin and contain high levels of active ingredients like hyaluronic acid, and low water content, to be the perfect solution to menopausal skin complaints such as dryness and wrinkles.

More recently, Stratum C have introduced 3 new products to their range to help tackle other menopausal skin problems. These include a Spot Relief, a Pigment Correction Gel and a Rose hip Gentle Cleanser, to provide menopausal women with a full daily routine.  These products were introduced to help prevent not only wrinkles, but also age spots and blemishes caused by the hormonal changes and everyday challenges faced by women during this time of our lives. The natural Rose hip oil in the Stratum C Menopause Skin Gentle Cleanser, provides a wealth of benefits for the skin, and comes in the form of a pink gel that foams gently and can be removed using a warm cloth. It also helps remove make up, and is a gentle solution to keeping your skin fresh, without having to use any harsh cleansers that are mostly aimed at teenagers (whom have much different skin types)!

Stratum C products can be purchased online at, where you can also find lots more on the details of the products themselves and learn the benefits and importance of taking care of your skin during menopause.
