Bitter Apple Extract
Bitter Apple Extract is
one of the newest extracts used in skin products. Apples are full of
vitamins A and C and Zinc, which are all essential for glowing, healthy
skin. Over the years, more and more people are choosing to adopt healthier
lifestyles by including apples as part of their diets, thus supporting the old
adage “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.” The numerous apple varieties are
as seemingly endless as their uses. The growing popularity of apples
has lead to its usage outside of the food industry.
The significance of apples in personal care products has been attributed
to the presence of an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA), malic acid, which promotes the
appearance of healthy and smoother feeling skin.
AHA’s are being used more
frequently in cosmetic formulations in order to exfoliate the skin and reduce
signs of sun damage and aging. The idea of using AHA technology was inspired by
chemical peel treatments used by dermatologists to treat various skin
conditions. AHA usage has become increasingly popular as a result of their
immediate perceived effects as well as their ease of use in aqueous systems
while also improving the skin’s texture and minimizing the appearance of pores,
fine lines and wrinkles to create an overall healthy, revitalized aesthetic.
