We use an exciting range of plant and fruit extracts in many of our products BUT what exactly are they and what benefit do they have to your skin ?

Fruit Extracts are praised for their powerful anti-aging and rejuvenating properties. Fruits contain naturally occurring Alpha Hydroxy Acids that are powerful antioxidants. When applied to the skin, they are believed to revitalise the skin by dissolving dead cells from the skin’s surface whilst retaining skin moisture.

In addition, fruit extracts are also abundant in various vitamins and minerals that may be absorbed by the skin when added to skin-care products. These constituents are reputed to improve the appearance of the skin, minimizing imperfections, and promoting vibrant and luminous looking skin. 

They are available in a powdered or liquid form. This allows us to use them in our dry formulations such as our Facial Masque range and also in our liquid formulations such as our Facial Mists.
