bottle of pai rosehip bioregenerate oil

As someone who adores face oils – and particularly, rosehip oil – I’m excited to share this Pai rosehip oil review with you!

In the past I had tried a couple of other rosehip oils and had eventually found one that I was really happy with.

I didn’t feel the need to change (because we all know how exhausting it can be to try a new product and then be let down…I didn’t want to go through that).

But I kept seeing the BioRegenerate oil everywhere and eventually, I gave in and got a bottle!

So, in this review I will cover the following topics:

  • Ingredients.
  • Benefits.
  • My overall impression.

Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil has a simple yet powerful ingredient list consisting of exactly four ingredients:

  • Organic rosehip seed extract (aka rosehip seed oil)
  • Organic rosehip fruit extract (aka rosehip fruit oil)
  • Vitamin E.
  • Rosemary Extract. 

According to their website, the product is “99.7% pure with added vitamin E.”

Now, let’s take a closer look at these ingredients.

Rosehip Seed and Fruit Oil

Most rosehip oils on the market are extracted only from the seed via a cold pressing.

However, Pai takes a whole different approach!

The BioRegenerate oil contains CO2-extracted oils from the rosehip seed and fruit.

As a result, this oil is much more potent because:

  • The rosehip fruit contains a lot more beta-carotene than the seed. According to Pai, the fruit can have up to 5x more beta-carotene! Since the body converts beta-carotene to vitamin A, that means this oil gives you a lot more skin-loving benefits than many other rosehip oils on the market.

  • CO2 extraction uses low temperatures (even lower than cold pressing). This results in a better quality oil! In fact, Pai notes that because of the CO2 extraction that they use, the BioRegenerate contains 20% more fatty acids than cold-pressed rosehip oil.

Lastly when it comes to the vitamin E and rosemary extract, many clean brands use them as natural “preservatives” because they have antioxidant properties.

So, my guess is that Pai added them into the product to help prevent oxidation and rancidity.


When I started using Pai’s Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil, I didn’t have any specific skin issues that I was targeting.

I just wanted to see how well it keeps the skin moisturized.

And I’m happy to report that the oil is excellent in that regard (NOTE: I only apply oil to wet skin because the oil locks in moisture. Oil on its own is not a moisturizer).

In addition, before using BioRegenerate, I had been using Kosmea’s rosehip oil (which is also CO2-extracted from the seed and fruit). I noticed that my skin absorbs the Pai oil faster. That was a nice little surprise!

So, that’s my personal experience with the oil.

Now here are some additional benefits that typically come with using rosehip oil.

1. Supports Skin Barrier

Rosehip oil is rich in the fatty acid called linoleic acid – around 54%.

Linoleic acid is said to play a crucial role in supporting the skin barrier.

A healthy skin barrier is essential for retaining moisture, preventing inflammatory skin conditions, preventing premature signs of aging and supporting overall skin health.

2. May Improve Acne

Some research shows that acne-prone skin produces sebum that is low in linoleic acid (source).

This imbalance can affect the skin barrier and subsequently, contribute to more inflammation (like pimples).

Since rosehip oil is a good source of linoleic acid, it may help reduce inflammation and acne.

3. May Help Hyperpigmentation

Rosehip oil is sometimes used as a natural remedy for hyperpigmentation.

This benefit may be due to the fact that rosehip oil is rich in pro-vitamin A.

Pro-vitamin A promotes skin turnover, which can lead to a more balanced skin tone and improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation.

4. Soothing to Sensitive Skin

Rosehip oil is often a go-to for people with sensitive skin because it is:

  • Rich in essential fatty acids: these fatty acids are anti-inflammatory which may help with redness, dryness or other signs of irritation.

  • Supports the skin barrier: sensitive skin typically has an impaired skin barrier. By nourishing it with an oil like rosehip, you may find that your skin is actually more resilient.


My golden rule for using this oil – and any other face oil – is to put it on wet skin.

Remember that oils are not moisturizers. Rather, they act as occlusive agents i.e. they create a protective barrier that locks in moisture.

So, make sure that you have moisture on your skin beforehand either by spritzing your face with:

  • plain water or rosewater.
  • a mixture of water and glycerin. This is my personal favorite because glycerin is a humectant (it attracts water). This was A MUST when I lived in a dry climate!

In addition, you can add a few drops of rosehip oil to clay mask recipes.

The oil will diminish the drying effects of the clay.


Pai’s Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil is definitely one of the two rosehip oils that I enjoy using (the other being Kosmea’s rosehip oil).

I like a simple skin care routine and I also pay attention to farming/production standards because this will significantly the nutrients that are in an oil

Pai meets all my requirements because they use:

  • organically grown rosehips.
  • seed and fruit oils that provide a wider spectrum of skin-loving nutrients.
  • gentle CO2 extraction that produces a finer quality oil.

I will gladly buy this again (and recommend that you do too)!
