Rose Hips, Rosa spp, also known as hipberries, are what remain after the petals fall off. Powdered rosehips have been used for centuries by the Incas and Native Americans as a treatment for many skin ailments.
Known for its high concentration of vitamin C (about 60 times that found in oranges), which is one of the most potent antioxidants, rosehip powder also has high levels of bioflavonoids vitamins E, A, and D. This combination of nutrients helps rosehips fight inflammation, refresh skin, and give your complexion a natural radiance.
South Americans have used Rosehips for generations to treat dry skin, help reduce signs of premature aging and fade blemishes such as pigmentation spots, acne scars, and sunspots. It is the natural vitamin C, in the form of essential fatty acids, which retains and attracts moisture for healthier and more youthful-looking skin and is believed to provide remarkable tissue-regenerating and rejuvenating effects.
In hair care, oil infused with rose hips seed strengthens the hair shaft.
