Ingredient Focus: Pineapple Extract

Pineapple, a tropical fruit favorite that not only tastes delicious but contains a host of skin-boosting benefits, what more could you ask for?

Pineapple Fruit Extract (Ananas Comosus), contains natural alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) and enzymes, responsible for its powerful moisturizing, anti-aging, anti-fungal, and purifying effects. Pineapple has an enzyme known as “bromelain” which breaks down skin cells to exfoliate the outer layers on the surface, removing dead and damaged (debridement) skin cells. Pineapple has also been well known to improve skin hydration, elasticity, and provide many nutrients to the skin promoting a healthier, more clear complexion.

Pineapple is rich in antioxidants and vitamin C, which protects our body from free radicals that attack healthy cells. Free radicals can lead to accelerated aging, heart disease, diabetes, and even cancer. The extract also provides alpha hydroxy acids, an organic acid which works on the corneal layer to reduce the cohesion of the corneocytes, resulting in improved elasticity, flexibility, and hydration.
