Apples are a healthy fruit that are as good for your skin as they are for your body. Apple extracts and essences are used in skin care for their rich nutritional benefits. Apple extract is rich in antioxidants like vitamin C and natural acids. It’s also high in polyphenols and catechins like those found in green tea.
Apple is a great ingredient for anyone concerned with prematurely aging, dull or uneven complexions. Rich in natural alpha hydroxy acids that help to gently exfoliate your skin and break up the proteins that hold skin cells together, apple extracts can help your skin appear brighter and smoother by sloughing away dead skin cells that can make your skin look dull. We use apple stem cells in our Time Defying Serum for its age-delaying and anti-wrinkle effects.
Apple is also great for oily and acneic skin types. It is a natural astringent that can help large pores appear smaller for oily skin types. It’s tightening properties make it perfect for toners. High levels of vitamin C in combination with astringent benefits can also help clear up the appearance of acne and rejuvenate the look of aging skin.
