Rosehips are particularly rich in vitamin C, carotenoids, polyphenols, and various flavonoids that have potent antioxidant activity. The seeds contained within the rose hips have been shown to comprise high amounts of polyunsaturated fatty acids , known to be essential to the skin.
In the 8 week study, a total of 34 healthy subjects, aged 35–65 years, with wrinkles on the face (crow’s-feet) were subjected to clinical study of the effects of the rose hip powder.
After 8 weeks of taking rosehip powder, this group showed statistically significant improvements in crow’s-feet wrinkles, skin moisture and elasticity.
Results suggest that intake of the rose hip powder improves aging-induced skin conditions.(1)
