Rosehip oil & white bed linen = a terrible idea

Am I the only one who has ruined lovely white bed linen with orange stains from Rosehip oil?

This is sort of a good housekeeping crossed with S&B. The top of my duvet cover and my pillowcase (from my face, neck and chest). It is lovely on my skin but a disaster for my bedclothes. I wash my sheets on the hottest wash I can (they shrink at 90) and use a good bio washing powder, whitening sheet & soda crystals in wash, but still the ghost of Rosehip haunts my bedroom. Arghhhh.

I use the cold pressed version from Fushi and really like it. I have the Ordinary one but haven't tried it yet. Is there a better one from a staining POV or are they all much the same if they are 'pure' rosehip?

I use the Ordinary one and have white bedlinen. I haven't noticed any staining but I only use literally a couple of drops on top of moisturiser.

If it's pure white could you try a bit of vanish for whites? Or soaking in very diluted bleach solution? (perhaps just spot treat the orange bits?)

I also use the ordinary oil and have had no staining. Again I only use a drop or so

I have this, it has stained my white company bed linen, pillows, and my £275 silk filled duvet shock

Busy-patterned bed linen is the way forward grin

I use the Pai one and have had no issue with staining. Are you applying it close to bedtime or earlier? I tend to cleanse my face as soon as I get home and apply my oil then so it has a good 3-4 hours to absorb into the skin before bedtime. I find 2-3 drops plenty, sometimes followed up by a night cream to seal it in.

A silk pillowcase might help also
