Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Extract

Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Extract 
  • Blueberry Fruit Extract is a natural extract of the fruit of Vaccinium Angustifolium. It is a natural ingredient that is used for its potent vitaminic and antioxidant and skin-conditioning benefits

  • Blueberry contains several types of antioxidants (known as polyphenolics) that are not only healthy for your body when eaten but also for your skin when applied via skincare products

  • Along with polyphenol antioxidants, blueberries are also a good source of vitamin C, although the polyphenol-based antioxidants are present in far greater amounts

  • Thanks to vitamins C and E, which naturally help remove dead surface cells and stimulate new ones, skin looks smoother and brighter. Vitamins C and E also help minimize sunspots and uneven pigmentation by removing surface skin cells, which cause discoloration

  • Research has shown that the antioxidants in blueberries are particularly adept at shielding skin from the unwanted changes in skin that occur when it’s exposed to visible and infrared light

  • Essentially, the blueberries work to intercept damage before it takes hold, leading to healthier-looking skin. Blueberries do not replace a broad-spectrum sunscreen; rather, their benefits complement what sunscreen does to protect skin

  • The antioxidants present in blueberries combat free radicals from sun exposure, which can cause damage to our skin over time and speed up the aging process

  • Blueberries also contain significant amounts of zinc and iron, both skin-friendly elements

  • The Cosmetics Ingredients Review has deemed that since many of these Fruits, Extracts and oils are edible, and their systemic toxicity potential is low, the review focused on potential dermal effects. The Panel concluded that the plant-derived products are safe as used in cosmetics
