Use & Benefits:
Antioxidant properties: Rubus ursinus fruit extract is rich in antioxidants, which help to protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can cause oxidative stress in the body, leading to premature aging of the skin. Antioxidants neutralize these free radicals, helping to reduce the signs of aging and promoting healthy, youthful-looking skin.
Moisturizing properties: Rubus ursinus fruit extract is a natural emollient, which means that it helps to moisturize and soften the skin. It helps to keep the skin hydrated by forming a protective barrier on the skin's surface, preventing moisture loss.
Anti-inflammatory properties: Rubus ursinus fruit extract has anti-inflammatory properties that help to soothe and calm irritated skin. It can help to reduce redness, swelling, and itching, making it an ideal ingredient for sensitive skin types.
Anti-acne properties: Rubus ursinus fruit extract has natural antibacterial properties that can help to combat acne-causing bacteria. It also helps to regulate sebum production, preventing clogged pores and reducing the formation of acne.
Skin brightening properties: Rubus ursinus fruit extract contains natural alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) that help to exfoliate the skin, removing dead skin cells and revealing brighter, more even-toned skin. AHAs also help to stimulate collagen production, promoting firmer, smoother-looking skin.
Rubus ursinus fruit extract is a popular ingredient in skincare products due to its numerous benefits for the skin. It is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin, and can be found in a variety of products, such as moisturizers, serums, and masks.
