Almost all of us have heard the saying “an apple
a day keeps the doctor away”, and although this phrase is rooted in folklore,
it may be a valuable piece of information we can use today. The fruit is known
to be high in ursolic, malic, tartaric and gallic acids and also contains
vitamins, magnesium and iron.
Gallic acid is an organic acid, which not only gives apples a sour
taste, but also functions as an astringent. Tartaric acid, another organic acid
found in apples is often used as an antioxidant. Malic acid present in apples
is an alpha hydroxy acid that may help smooth and moisturize the skin while
promoting collagen synthesis. The combination in activity of ursolic, gallic,
tartaric and malic acids that are present in apples make the fruit a highly
useful ingredient in personal care and cosmetic products.
SuperScents is botanical extract oil that is intended to have the
anti-inflammatory, firming, smoothing and moisturizing properties of apples. As
with all our PhytoScents, this product will provide the botanical benefit and
scent to your application.
