A six week clinical trial of a Morinda citrifolia (noni) based skin care regimen was conducted with 49 women, ages 38 to 55 years. Daily application of three product formulations to the face and neck resulted in significant reductions in lateral canthal fine lines and wrinkles (crow’s feet), as measured by technician scoring and digital image analysis. Use of the regimen also improved skin elasticity and firmness Cutometer® measurements. No evidence of skin irritation was present in any participant at any time during the trial. A study questionnaire revealed that the measured improvements were visibly perceptible to more than 90% of the participants. The trial results substantiate traditional uses of the noni plant to improve skin health.
