Antioxidant rich fruits are super powerful for healthy looking skin. Just like digestive enzymes in our stomach, topical application of fruit enzymes helps in digesting/dissolving the hard superficial layer of keratin protein on our skin. These enzymes soften and slough away the rough upper layer to reveal a glowing and balanced complexion underneath. The vitamins and minerals in fruits boosts collagen synthesis, which is the key component for younger looking skin.
Fruit enzymes also help in hair management. These enzymes charge up the hair follicles and promote hair growth. They also protect from split ends and reduce thinning of hair caused by overuse of chemicals and styling products.
Read this blog to learn more about how these six most effective fruit enzymes and acids promote good skin and hair health:
Papaya contains the enzymes papain and chymopapain which work as exceptional exfoliators by helping dissolve proteins, dirt, oil, and debris from clogged pores.
Our Papaya & Honey Exfoliation Mask & Scrub for Normal, Dry & Oily Skin (or SBR Facial Mask for Sensitive/Rosacea/Pitta Skin) not only removes damaged keratin that can build up on skin, but also soothe and ease out inflammation. Use the product as mask, exfoliator or scrub 2-3X times a week to improve complexion and boost cellular regeneration.
Pomegranate enzymes are known to encourage cell renewal and fight aging. The skin actives in pomegranate extract are among the best-known replacements for alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs).
Even for the most sensitive skin types, the fruit enzymes in pomegranate help in deep exfoliation without disrupting the pH or triggering any inflammation. Over time, it brightens the complexion and reduces age spots and hyperpigmentation.
Our SBR Cleanser contains a combination of organic Avocado extract and dozens of calming botanicals that are exceptionally gentle and effective in deep cleansing sensitive, blemished and rosacea-prone skin. The pitta skin-friendly cleanser heals and calms irritation and is best paired with SBR Hydrator/Toner and SBR Serum.
The pulp of Tamarind (Tamarindus indica) is used in organic skin care for its antioxidant and anti-aging benefits. The tropical fruit is rich in Vitamin B-complex, Vitamin C, Magnesium, etc., and is an important ingredient in our revolutionary BioScience Peptide Complex. The enzymes and tartaric acid in Tamarind reduces dark spots and balances uneven skin tone.
Lemon and other citrus fruits are among the richest plant sources of glutamic acid decarboxylase. Enzymes along with alpha hydroxy acids in citrus fruits play an important role in breaking down the superficial layer of dead skin cells, and help reveal a clear and improved complexion.
Our skin toners with lemon essential oil and other citrus extracts (Daily Hydrator/Toner for Normal or Vata Skin, Pore Perfect Hydrator/Toner for Oily or Kapha Skin, and SBR Hydrator/Toner for Sensitive, Blemished and Rosacea-prone skin) work as an efficient astringent that not only unclogs and tones pores but also hydrates, balances pH and refreshes dull-looking skin.
