Acerola Organic Extract

Rich in biologically bioavailable vitamin C. Antioxidant properties, pigment unifying of the skin, anti-stain.

Composed mainly of palmitic acid (2-6%); stearic acid (15-25%); oleic acid (60-70%); linolenic acid (5-15%); linoleic acid (<1%), as well as an original unsaponifiable fraction that gives it a great moisturizing and emollient capacity. It contains antioxidants such as tocopherols (vitamin E) and catechins (which are also found in green tea). Other specific compounds have been detected as triterpene alcohols, whose property is to reduce inflammation; esters of cinnamic acids, which have a limited ability to absorb ultraviolet (UV) radiation, and lupeol, which prevents the effects of skin aging by inhibiting enzymes that degrade skin proteins. Shea butter also protects the skin by stimulating the production of structural proteins by specialized dermal cells.
This fat is known above all for its moisturizing properties, which is why it is used in the composition of numerous preparations for the cosmetic industry.
