They’re not just a sweet fruit to enjoy when you need a snack: Oranges are excellent for your skin too. In particular, Orange Extract contains high levels of antioxidants, that help to prevent cell damage and promote healing at a cellular level.
Of course, you know that Orange Extract is rich in Vitamin C, which boosts your skin’s natural collagen production process, and helps to stave off the effects of ageing. But, Orange Extract is also rich in Vitamin A. Vitamin A contains retinol, which stimulates collagen production within your skin cells. The more collagen your skin cells produce, the more your fine lines and wrinkles will fade. Vitamins A and C are also highly useful for protecting your skin against infection.
Orange Extract is also a great moisturiser for your skin, as it contains natural oils that help your skin stay hydrated and well-nourished.
Orange Extract contains Citric Acid. This is useful for exfoliating, removing dead skin cells and impurities from, and improving the appearance of, your skin. Citric Acid is a great tool for combating Acne, and the chemical form of it is regularly found in Acne treatments.
Thanks to the Calcium contained in Orange Extract, it can help to stimulate cell regeneration and keep skin from becoming too dry or brittle. Calcium works with your skin’s epidermis to produce sebum, helping to lock in that all-important moisture. Similarly, the Manganese contained in Orange Extract helps to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
