UK company Barefoot Botanicals introduced its Rosa Fina botanical skin care products to the US market this week.

The products contain Rosa Moschata oil from the Chilean Andes (rosehip seed) which is said to have healing and regenerative properties, and collagen-boosting herbal extracts, vitamins, natural antioxidants and essential oils to revitalise and condition the skin.

"While these products are new to the United States market, they enjoy a loyal and growing following in the UK,"​ said Wil Baker, Barefoot Botanicals US president.

Baker added that there is a growing consumer awareness of the benefits of botanical skin care products, and concerns about the use of petrochemical ingredients and treatments such as Botox.

The Rosa Fina skin care range is the first to be introduced in the US by the new Barefoot Botanicals subsidiary in San Francisco. The products are available at health food shops or online​.

Barefoot Botanicals claims all of its products are 100 per cent plant origin and free of GMOs, animal products and synthetic perfumes, preservatives and colours. The Rosa Fina range is certified in the EU by ECOCERT, and as such meets the NOP Final Rule of October 2002 as Certified Organic products. All Rosa Fina products are suitable for vegans.

The company was established by homeopathic practitioners Jonathan Stallick and Hilery Dorrian in London in 1998 to develop a natural remedy to treat head lice.
