They are widely used in the world; because of the different wild rose species, there are several INCI names for wild rose oil. Rosa Canina is known in Europe as Hunds- or dog rose, its fruits are the rose hips commonly used in cosmetics. Rosa Mosqueta, in turn, is a collective term for various subspecies of the wild rose. Cosmetically, however, all species are considered equivalent.
