Introduction: Cacay Oil vs Rosehip Oil
Cacay Oil is the Amazon’s best secret. And it is starting to become known among some beauty bloggers, and experts. Overall, in comparison to some others such as Argan, Marula, Rosehip and other beautiful oils. Cacay Oil is still a Beauty secret when it comes to the #topshelfie Talk.
So let’s get started.
Extraction Process: Cacay Oil vs Rosehip Oil
Rosehip and Cacay are both indigenous to South America. Rosehip oil is extracted from seeds of rosehip (Rosa canina L.). An appreciable number of lipophilic antioxidants is present, especially the tocopherols and carotenoids. Rosehip oil also contains high level of phenolic acids, especially p-coumaric acid methyl ester, vanillin, and vanillic acid. Due its high composition of UFAs and antioxidants, this oil has relatively high protection against inflammation and oxidative stress . Shabikin et al. has tested the efficacy of topical rosehip seed oil together with an oral fat-soluble vitamins on different inflammatory dermatitis such as eczema, neurodermatitis, and cheilitis, with promising findings of the topical use of rosehip seed oil on these inflammatory dermatoses .
Linoleic Acid: Cacay Oil vs Rosehip Oil
Cacay Oil can contain more than 70% of Linoleic acid. You can review the results of our Oil on our Green Science page. Due to its high level of Linoleic Acid, it makes it a very good oil for all types of skin including blemish prone skin or people that suffer from acne. Due to recent studies, it has been identified the reason why some suffer from blemish or acne is due to their deficiency in linoleic acid which helps to reduce inflammation and decongest pores. Thus, Cacay Oil being extremely high in Linoleic Acid is suitable for all skin types. In comparison to Rosehip, Rosehip oil contains substantial UFAs. The most abundant fatty acid is linoleic acid with 35.9–54.8% still much lower than Cacay Oil .
Oleic Acid: Cacay Oils vs Rosehip Oil
Oleic Acid is quite rich, often leading to excess oil for people with acne-prone skin, Linoleic Acid is much thinner and lighter, and therefore suitable for those with oily/acne-prone skin. Oleic Acid (Omega 9) can be found in Rosehip in slightly higher levels between 14.7–22.1%, in comparison to Cacay, where it is around 10%-14%. If you tend to have normal to dry skin, you can use oils rich in Oleic acid. However, if you tend to have combination to oily skin, you should consider oils that are high in Linoleic Acid such as our Cacay Oil.
