  • Oranges are also a rich source of Vitamin C (Ascorbic acid), the major water-soluble antioxidant for protecting our skin

  • It is also used for its content in alpha hydroxy acids. AHA's can be used as water-binding agents in cosmetics but are mostly used in modern cosmetics for their exfoliating properties and their therapeutic properties which help with and minimize photo damaged skin, which is a major contributing factor to ageing

  • Apart from ridding the skin of unnecessary dead cells, AHAs also have a moisturizing effect on the skin, by increasing the moisture content of the upper skin and so smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, as well as reducing dryness and combating flakiness
