A peaceful screen / scenery in the middle of nature
The quality of soil and air of Patagonia offer to this rosehip plant, present in all of our products, an extraordinary character. The expertises of the French cosmetic formulators give it its nobility.
The factory of the rosehip oil (Rosa Mosqueta oil) is ideally situated in the wild, in a serene/ tranquil environment.
No fertilizers and no human intervention is used until the artisanal picking during the middle of autumn, this is the conditions in which the rosehip plant/ Rosa Mosqueta blossoms and transforms.
In the heart of the campo, the fruit of the plant is hand picked. After their arrival at the factory, they are sorted by hand, dried and finally put into a (shaker? Or machine?) to separate the dried pulp from the seeds.
To extract part of the oil that the seeds hold, they are pressed one time in a machine at room temperature. This type of extraction allows us to preserve the benefits of the oil obtained (vitamins, tocopherols?, essential fatty acids, pigments, etc.) as well as its aroma.
After a filtration, the oil is found enriched by vitamin E to assure a perfectly natural conservation. The rest of the fruit is crushed and its subtle aromas will be appreciated in a tea infusion or in a delicious jam as well.
Azucena Pagny watches and follows every step of the creation of this precious oil, from the fruit picking in her land in Patagonia to the conditioning which occurs in France.
