Organic Flax Seed Glycerin

A Magic Ingredient for Skin & Hair

Christina Moss Naturals organic flax glycerin is far superior to other glycerin products. Why? Because it’s 100% derived from organic flax seeds. That means it’s 100% palm-free and 100% vegan friendly. But what makes this product a real showstopper is its versatility and performance.

Vegetable Glycerin Derived from 100% Organic Flax Seeds - Box & BottleWhat Makes Our Glycerin Different?

First, it’s important to understand that conventional derivatives of glycerin are usually from:

    1. GMO Oils
    2. Palm Oils
    3. Animal Fats

If you already use my products, you most likely have a concern about genetically altered foods and cosmetics. If you care about the Earth (which I believe my customers do) you probably buy nothing that contains palm oil because you understand farming the palm tree forests is destroying our environment. And if you object to smearing animal products on your skin, you probably avoid ingredients with animal fats.

In stark contrast to the conventional glycerin above, we derive our glycerin only from organic flax seed. This environmentally friendly product has clear, sweet and odorless qualities, along with an impressive list of practical uses. Read on and discover more about this ingredient, including how it can naturally provide enormous benefits to skin and hair.

What is Cosmetic Glycerin used for?

What is Vegetable Glycerin?

In a nutshell, you can use flax glycerin in lip masks (add sugar or salt and gently scrub your lips), hair masks (put some conditioner in your hand and add some glycerin) and face masks (try adding some to a face mask). It can also enhance moisturizer by mixing them in the palm of your hand and applying the moisturizer as usual. Notice the dewy glow it gives your skin. Add some to body lotion for the same dewy glow all over. Glycerin is an emollient, so it softens and moisturizes. Because of its natural sweetness, skin will readily absorb its qualities, especially when used in a face mask and combined with other raw ingredients. It can really help boost the quality of your skin. Our glycerin is pure, gentle, and safe for most skin types and is appropriate for everyday use.

Using vegetable glycerin can lighten your skin tone, diminishing the visibility of dark spots.

What Our Customers Say

Storing Instructions

Our vegetable glycerin is packed in an amber bottle that provides UV protection. It has a very impressive shelf life. But to really keep it long-lasting, it is best stored at room temperature, away from sunlight.

~Christina Moss

NOTE: Allergic reactions to glycerin are quite rare, which is why it’s used as a negative control in allergy scratch tests. However, (obligatory disclaimer) we don’t recommend using it on broken or cut skin, or if skin is super sensitive, without first consulting with a dermatologist. In the unlikely event that redness or rash should develop (or if any non-optimum condition arises), discontinue use and contact your dermatologist.

Rosehip Seed Oil

Rosehip Seed Oil By Christina Moss NaturalsRosehip seed oil is an organic cold-pressed formula extracted from Rosa Moschata. This special ingredient contains natural skin-nourishing vitamins and fatty acids that help your skin become smoother, more hydrated and radiant.

The oil comprises linoleic and linolenic acids, pro-vitamin A, and essential fatty acids to target photoaging symptoms and promote fresh, healthy, and more youthful skin.

Nature included antioxidants and the moisturizing benefits of fatty acids. This remarkable oil contains Vitamins A, E, C, along with the omega fatty acids 3, 6, and 9. These encourage skin cell turnover and elasticity, while improving the appearance of hyperpigmentation (dark patches on the skin).

Christina Moss Naturals Rosehip Seed Oil is entirely safe. It is famous for its healing properties. It penetrates deep within the skin layers to stimulate collagen, rejuvenate the tissues, and moisturize your skin. Thus, Rosehip seed oil is an ideal product that can do wonders to your everyday skincare routine.

Benefits of Rosehip Seed Oil 


Rosehip oil keeps your skin super hydrated as it contains a wealth of essential fatty acids such as linoleic and linolenic acids. These fatty acids increase the strength of the skin cell wall, which helps cells hold on to water. This oil has the power to penetrate deep within the skin layers where all the natural benefits mentioned above can work their magic.


As mentioned, Rosehip Seed oil is an excellent natural moisturizer for all skin types. It will lock in your skin’s natural hydration. Thus, it keeps your skin moisturized for long hours.

Boosts Collagen Formation 

Rosehip oil enhances your collagen production with Vitamins A and C. It inhibits enzymes that break down collagen which will increase skin elasticity and firmness.

Exfoliates and Brightens Skin Rosehip Oil by Christina Moss Naturals

Rosehip oil encourages cell turnover using Vitamin A or retinol. Similarly, Vitamin C also assists in cell regeneration, along with boosting overall radiance. In this way, Rosehip oil helps reduce dullness, giving you glowing skin.

Reduces Inflammation 

Because it is rich in both polyphenols and anthocyanin, Rosehip Seed Oil may reduce inflammation, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, etc. Likewise, it contains Vitamin E, an antioxidant famous for its anti-inflammatory effects.

Reduces Scars And Fine Lines

With these antioxidants and fatty acids, Rosehip Seed oil is effective in treating wounds and scars. It enhances the natural process of cell regeneration, reducing spots and fine lines. In this way, this oil helps you heal quickly with less chance of leaving scars.

Combats Acne 

Rosehip oil can be helpful for acne-prone skin. It has both anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties that can fight acne. Consult your dermatologist before using this to treat acne.

Reduces Hyperpigmentation 

The rich amount of Vitamin A, including retinoids in Rosehip oil can help reduce hyperpigmentation and skin discoloration. Likewise, it contains melanin-reducing properties.

Brightens your Skin 

Rosehip oil lightens your skin tone with lycopene and beta carotene. These compounds help brighten up your skin, contributing to a more beautiful and even skin tone.

How to Use It? 

Since rosehip seed oil is a dry oil, we suggest using it each night at the end of your skincare routine following all your water-based products.

Rosehip oil is useful as a carrier oil (a base oil) for essential oils. So, use rosehip oil on its own, or add in a few drops of essential oil. You can also add some this is oil to your favorite moisturizer. To do that, simply combine the two in a separate bowl, mix and apply to the skin.

Apply the rosehip oil once or twice a day, just like you would use moisturizer. However, you may need to contact your health care provider to confirm the dosage necessary to treat wounds or skin conditions like eczema.

Storing Instructions 

Rosehip oil is a cold-pressed oil. That means no chemicals were used to extract the oil from the rose hips. We package our fresh, cold-pressed Rosehip oil in amber glass jars. These help shield the product from exposure to light. We chose glass instead of plastic to help ensure purity. Keep this product fresh by storing it in a cool dry location with the cap tightly sealed. For optimum freshness and increased shelf life, consider storing it in a cosmetic refrigerator.

The Top 4 Dangers of Using Fluoride

Boy drinking water

Here’s a quick quiz: what used to be a way to control cockroach and lice infestations, and is now in our drinking water? The answer: fluoride.

Fluoride is difficult to avoid. It’s in our water, our juice, our wine and beer, and even in baby formula. While water fluoridation has been banned in most European countries, it’s everywhere in the American food supply. This is extremely troubling, as over-consumption of it has been linked to a number of very serious issues. Here are four of the most worrisome:
