Re-hydrates, re-mineralises, evens out skin tone, battles free-radicals.
The Acerola Cherry is one of nature’s best-kept secrets. It contains mineral salts and a very high concentration of Vitamin C antioxidants (up to 100 times more than that found in an orange) which can help to improve the effectiveness of the immune system.
Acerola is used in our cosmetics to aid in the re-mineralisation of tired and stressed skin. It contains mucilage and proteins which have skin-hydrating properties and also promotes capillary conditioning. In addition, the high amount of Vitamin C in the extract inhibits the tyrosinase and helps even out skin tone, it can be very beneficial in treating skin conditions including melasma (skin discolouring). Scientists also believe it assists in battling the free radicals which contribute to skin ageing.
