Apple Fruit Extract
Gentle exfoliant; hydrating, moisturizing. Source of alpha-hydroxyacids (AHAs), anti-oxidant phenolic compounds, vitamin C and minerals (potassium, phosphorus) and carbohydrates. Carbohydrates have humectant (water absorbing) activity and film-forming effects so may help to keep the outer layer of the skin hydrated and prevent transepidermal water loss. AHAs promote skin exfoliation and skin cell regeneration. May provide some degree of photoprotection.
