Rosehips To The Rescue - Phytacol Giveaway

Nothing can take away the joy of a new born child, but pregnancy certainly has its challenges and stretchmarks is one of them, probably the main worry for new mums. I remember worrying so much when I was pregnant with my first child, but now I've kind of got used to the fact that they are there. 

If you want to combat them though, the 2 new products from Phytacol are for you. Phytacol comes in an oil (Phytaoil) and lotion (Phytalotion) format and has been specifically created by experts to help beat stretchmarks as they have utilised the anti-stretch mark properties in rosehip oil.  

Rosehip oil has recently become famed for its use as a moisturiser, but research shows there is more to the hedgerow fruit than simply beating dry skin and now, those who have been using rosehip oil have found that it has the ability to smooth scars and stretchmarks.

It is found to be particularly rich in essential fatty acids and contain a substance called bioflavonoids. Fatty acids are essential for healthy skin and bioflavonoids are known to be powerful anti-oxidants that have been shown to protect the body and skin against harmful substances that cause ageing skin.

During tests in the US, tretinoin, a Vitamin A derivative that is also contained in rosehips, was found to be helpful in combating wrinkles and helped smooth skin tones.


Phytacol utilises the active ingredients of the whole rosehip extract, and rosehip seed oil, with other goodies for the skin (including vitamins A and E, and natural oils of apricot kernel, lavender, lime and geranium) to create a product that really packs a punch when it comes to beating stretch marks. Both the lotion and oil are easily absorbed into the skin and contain no mineral oil, synthetic fragrances or colours.

Phytaoil is priced at £10.99 and Phytalotion £9.99, for further details please visit the Phytacol website. 

Now, how would you like to win both Phytaoil and Phytalotion to try out on your skin? Well, all you need to do is enter using the Rafflecopter form below to be in with a chance.

  1. Luckily, even after having delivered 6 babies, I don't have a single stretch mark anywhere, however, due to my Chron's disease I do suffer from dry and tired looking skin so I would use these products to smooth and tone my skin and to give me an 'oooomph' this Winter, as I tend to look pale!
