Back in June I had the opportunity to try out the Pai Skincare line from Hip Apothica. Pai is an organic skincare line targeted at Sensitive skin. The product I’m focusing on today is their Rosehip bioRegenerate Fruit & Seed Oil Blend. It’s used to minimize scars, stretch marks, sun damage and fine lines. It has a ton of Vitamin A and antioxidants in it.
The Website Claims:
The Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate™ Oil is unique in using concentrated fruit hip oil, with twice the regenerative sterols and five times the caretonoids of seed oil. Our Rosehip blend delivers Trans-Retinoic Acid directly to the epidermis, which converts to Vitamin A to boost the skin’s natural healing process. With daily use Rosehip oil conditions the skin, improving skin firmness, elasticity and suppleness. Clinical studies show Rosehip is effective at improving the appearance of scars, stretch marks, sun damage and fine lines.
Volcanically sourced CO2 is used to gently extract the oils while preserving the complete properties of the plant. Unlike cold pressing it eliminates all germs and prevents oxidization of the oil.
Pai Rosehip Oil contains a 100% natural Vitamin E (from sunflower) that reduces the photo-aging effects of UVA light on the skin. It has the dual antioxidant benefit of keeping the oil fresh and in optimum condition.

Suitable for Vegans.
$35 for 1 fl. oz
Does it live up to its claims?
Yes, I think it does. I’ve been using this serum, along with the Chamomile & Rosehip Sensitive Skin Cream at night and I feel like I’ve seen an improvement in the overall appearance of my skin. It didn’t irritate my sensitive skin at all. It does smell of chamomile, which I find extremely soothing. I LOVE this scent, especially in a product that I’m using at night.
Would I purchase?
Yes. While it is $35 for one ounce, a tiny bit goes a long way with this product and I’m really happy with how my skin is looking. And the scent. I love the scent!
Have you heard of Pai? What do you think of organic, sensitive skincare products? Are you happy to see a skincare line targeting sensitive skin? I know I am.
Hip Apothica will be opening in the fall. If you sign up for their mailing list you will be eligible to receive a package of samples from the brands that they will be offering and if you make a purchase you’ll receive a bottle of Adara coconut oil!
Product sent for consideration. All opinions are my own.
It always gets me how pricey things like this are. $35 for 1oz? It sounds like it works well, though, and I’m never one to put a price on results.
Do you know if they are planning to ship internationally? I would love to try this serum!
Michelle here from Hip Apotheca. At launch, we will only be shipping to the US and Canada but we intend on expanding. You can sign our mailing list to find out when we start shipping internationally.
I would love to try an oil that helps me get rid of scars … its amazing how quickly scars form, and don’t go away!
I agree! I have a dark spot on my chin that’s from a zit
I’m a big fan of oils for skin care, will definitely look into it. Besides it sounds like it smells divine.
It does! I love how it smells.
This sounds intriguing! How a product smells is so important – there’s a line of haircare products that I’m sure is effective. I’ll never know, as the way they smell is offensive to me!
Ug, I know what you mean! I hate it when something smells ‘off’ to me. Thankfully, this stuff smells comforting.
Ooo, these look like gorgeous products – I love facial oils, and use them instead of moisturiser
Hey Phyrra…..you can get rosehip seed oil from iherb.com for $5. It’s the same thing
Thanks for letting me know!

You can get rosehip seed oil even cheaper for a lot more product from wholesale merchants of essential oils & carrier oils. I get a lot of my stuff from New Directions Aromatics. They’ve got pretty much anything you can think of at a fraction of the price. It really peeves me when companies just repackage really basic oils & other ingredients, slap a brand on it & sell it for 10x what it’s worth. It’s no better than indie companies that buy & repackage bulk pigments & claim it’s their own ‘formulation’. This company sounds like it’s got some great products but I wouldn’t in a million years buy this.
