WHAT MAKES SBI’S ROSEHIP SUPERIOR?
FAIR FOR LIFE CERTIFICATION
According to Ecocert, we are the only Rosehip producer in the world with Fair for Life certification.
We have been improving the livelihoods of indigenous inhabitants (Mapuche and Patagones) who harvest the fruit for years.
Traceability, controlling the product from the forests, farms, fields to the formulator, will be very difficult to match.
We have thousands of hectares long- term contracted between 37 – 44°S latitude, versus 29°S in Eastern Europe where most rosehip is grown.
HIGHER NUTRIENT CONTENT
Linolenic: We have higher linolenic acid than our competitors (34.5). Linolenic Acid is known for anti- inflammatory and anti-aging properties. It plays a crucial role in skin moisture balance and strengthens the epidermis.
Oleic: We have less Oleic Acid (14.9) than our competitors. Oleic acid is healthy mono-unsaturated fat that is good, but at higher levels can have comedogenic effects.
Suggested use levels are balms: 4-10%; lotions and creams: 3-10%; bar soaps: 3-10%; and hair conditioners: 3-5%.
