FSS Bearberry Extract G
Preserved with Leucidal Liquid
Bearberry’s name is derived from the Greek and Latin word UvaUrsi which means Bear’s Grape. It is believed that this name was associated with the plant because of the notion that bears eat the fruit with relish.

However, bearberry is also referred to by other names according to the places where it is found, for example it is also called mountain cranberry, sandberry, hogberry, rockberry and upland cranberry.


Bearberry extract is made from the leaves of the bearberry plant. It is commonly used as an astringent in cosmetic preparations and skin care products. It is also used as a lightening agent to fade freckles or skin discoloration which may be caused by sun damage or hormonal conditions. Bearberry extract is reputed to have antibacterial and antioxidant properties that may be beneficial for cleansing the skin and improving its appearance.
