Ingredient Of The Week: Grapefruit Extract

Scientific Name: Citrus Paradisi

Benefits/History: 

Known for its vibrant color, refreshing scent and health improving properties, grapefruit is recently gaining recognition as a powerful skin care ingredient. The secret of this fruit lies behind its unique composition of essential antioxidants and vitamins. Moreover, these antioxidants and vitamins are what enable the fruit to provide an array of anti aging benefits including evening skin tone and reversing free radical damage, when applied topically. Grapefruit’s high water content helps to keep the skin’s outer barrier hydrated and better able to resist wrinkles and damage caused by sun pollution and other environmental stressors. Grapefruit has also been credited with helping to keep skin supple, plump and resilient against age related damage as it helps boost healthy collagen production. The presence of Vitamin A in grapefruit allows it to act like a retinol treatment, renewing damaged skin, treating skin pigmentation and restoring a softer and clearer complexion.

Skin Types: Grapefruit’s natural exfoliating and astringent qualities make it an ideal ingredient to include in a skin care routine for oily and acne prone skin types. The fruit also helps to increase the pH of skin, which in turn may lead to a reduction in acne. Those suffering with dry skin conditions such as rosacea should be cautious when using grapefruit in skin care as citrus may irritate the condition.
