Model, presenter, author and yoga teacher Rachel Hunter is a genuine fan of New Zealand skincare brand essano™ and counts its Certified Organic Hydrating Rosehip Oil as a mainstay of her beauty routine.
When it comes to upholding super natural and super healthy skin, Rachel – who is renowned for her timeless beauty – opts for simple, clean skincare using Rosehip Oil for over 15 years.
She says: “I have loved Rosehip Oil for years so to be working with a brand like essano that has such high-grade Rosehip Oil is a match made in heaven. essano encompasses the qualities I admire in beauty -conscious, quality and makes my skin feel amazing.”
“I have pretty dry skin and essano Rosehip Oil helps my skin feel softer and dewier. And I don’t stop at my face. I use Rosehip Oil on my neck, arms, legs and body as well. I love its golden, honey colour and you can feel the sumptuous moisture from it as soon as you put it on your hands.”
LA local but Kiwi at heart, Rachel discovered essano on the shelves at New World while visiting home nine years ago. “I remember the first time I saw essano, I was at home filming New Zealand’s Got Talent and was wandering through my local New World, I was drawn to the Rosehip and the pink packaging. I was happy to see a natural, home grown, premium Rosehip Oil that was accessible to everyone. I was excited to try it as essano adds Acai Berry to the Rosehip Oil for an additional antioxidant boost”.
“Then in the last year I saw essano on the shelf in my local Rite Aid in LA. It is always exciting to see a Kiwi brand reaching America, so I bought the product of the stand right there and I got in touch with essano.”
Embarking on a partnership together is a natural alignment between the two homegrown talents. Sharing many similar values, Rachel and essano™ are committed to being cruelty free, prioritizing natural products, focusing on environmental and community sustainability^, choosing certified organic where possible and having beautiful, premium products that are accessible to all.
“When I choose skincare, I like brands that are listening to consumers’ voices and making changes – I love to see cruelty free icons, I love organic certifications, and I love sustainability credentials – everyone should have access to premium, natural products that have integrity – and are actually affordable. It is about our skin, but it is also about making high grade quality products available for everyone, with a product that works.”
Did you know?
essano sustainably sources its rosehips from Patagonia Austral – a pure untouched region in the extreme south of Chile renowned for the quality of rosehips. Unlike other oils on the market, essano’s Rosehip Oil is certified organic by Ecocert and cold-pressed, meaning that the method of extraction uses a hydraulic press, creating mass pressure and removing the need for heat, oxygen or added chemicals to be used during the process. This extraction technique leaves the oil nutrient dense for optimum results.
Rosehip Oil is scientifically proven to soften the look of scars, fine lines and stretch marks, boost moisture and hydrate, and improve the look of your skin’s firmness and even out skin tone.
