What makes our rosehip powder different?
Rosehip powders in the market contain so many nutrients that are beneficial to our health. But it could only be truly beneficial if: the rosehips used in the powder are of high quality; and if they have been processed properly so that none of its naturally-occurring nutrients are lost along the way.We offer:
Rosehips naturally contain a dense amount of Vitamin C. However, much of it is destroyed in the manufacturing process. The result is a declined quality of rosehip powder.We take extra care to avoid this by air-drying our rosehips, making sure the temperature stays under 42 degrees Celsius. This way, all the nutrients in the hips are retained.
