The use of fruity extracts in skin care offer a long list of anti-aging benefits for short and long term benefits in the look and feel of your skin. Outside of skin care, fruit is highly sought after for a healthy diet. Fruits are a great source of nutritional benefits, hydration and vitamins that promote health. So why not incorporate those benefits into your daily skin care routine? Here’s more on the science behind fruit extracts in skin care. Fruits contain powerful AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) that primarily function as skin exfoliants. They loosen dead skin cells and unclog pores. In doing so, AHAs encourage cell turnover and skin resurfacing. As we age, the natural cycle of our skin cells begins to slow and dead skin cells begin to build up on the surface of the skin. Incorporating products with AHAs, aka fruity extracts, help clear out those dead cells that can cause skin to appear aged and dull. The skin that is revealed once the dead skin cells are exfoliated away appears younger looking, brighter and more radiant.

Here’s an overview on some of the fruity extracts we use in our Revercel formulations.

Papaya Extract - reduces inflammation. Papaya enzymes help reduce acne breakouts by removing the dead skin cells that can clog pores. Try our Papaya Cleanser, a daily face wash that moisturizes and deeply exfoliates to reveal younger, brighter looking skin.

Cucumber Extract - soothes the skin. Cucumber is an antioxidant which protects skin against damage caused by the environment. 

Lemon Extract - protects against premature aging. Lemon contains vitamin C, an antioxidant that reduces skin damage. It also decreases inflammation and oil production.

Pineapple Extract - fights free-radical damage. Pineapple is an antioxidant rich in vitamin C which supports collagen production and brightens the complexion.

Grapefruit Extract - balances the skin. Grapefruit is great for oily and acne-prone skin because it exfoliates dead skin cells, keeps pores clear and brightens the complexion.

Apple Extract - smooths the skin. It’s high in polyphenols, flavonoids and antioxidants to protect against free radicals and maintain youthful elasticity. Skin Brightening Lotion fades dark spots, even skin tone and reduces inflammation for a healthy, radiant look.

Orange Extract - relieves acne prone skin. Orange extract is gentle and reduces irritation while preventing acne breakouts and scarring.

Shop Green Enzyme Peel, a gentle exfoliator that contains papaya, lemon, cucumber, pineapple and grapefruit extracts to resurface, revive and enhance radiance.
