The aroma of Peppermint puts just about anyone into a good mood, but the gorgeous smell is just the start of Peppermint’s wonderful properties. A pleasant-tasting plant, Peppermint contains menthol, menthone, and limonene. Peppermint Extract also contains omega-3 fatty acids, Iron, Potassium, Manganese, and Vitamins A and C.
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. Vitamin A is also highly useful for protecting your skin against infection. Vitamin C, which similarly boosts your skin’s natural collagen production process, can help to stave off the effects of ageing.
Well-known for its wonderful ways in reducing skin redness, Peppermint Extract calms itchy skin and can reduce skin irritation. As a cooling agent, Peppermint Extract soothes your skin, and can brighten up dull skin too.
