What is Green Apple?
by Annie Brown
Green Apple (Pyrus Malus) as an ingredient is pretty self-explanatory, it’s a Green Apple! A readily available fruit, apples are grown all over the world and are not just a delicious snack; they are fantastic for your skin too. But what does it do and why? Find out more about this versatile ingredient and why an apple day, helps keeps those blemishes at bay…
Green apples are bursting with wonderful antioxidants which help to slow down the ageing process by defending the skin against damaging free radicals. Vitamin A and Vitamin C naturally counteract UV free radical stress and pollution, resulting in minimised fine lines and brighter skin. Not forgetting Vitamin C is essential for Collagen production, a necessary component of the skin, keeping it plump and protecting its waterproof barrier.
For skin to look bright and healthy, exfoliation is vital. However, there are many ways to do this and is mainly down to personal preference. Physical/Mechanical exfoliators use a hard substance to manually remove dead skin cells, such as salt, sugar or jojoba beads. Others prefer to use a chemical exfoliator, and green apple is one of these. Chemical exfoliators are not dangerous, they are incredibly safe and derive from naturally occurring acids. Green apple being a natural chemical exfoliator, brightens and tones the skin with minimal risk. Perfect for those with sensitive skin.
Improves Texture/Natural Astringent
Using green apple regularly in skincare can help to deeply moisturise your skin as it’s an extremely good hydrator, containing a high-water content. Skin will be much softer and fuller looking, but not oily. The reason for this is green apple is also a natural astringent. Astringents help to control and balance the oils in your skin, shrink pores and improve the overall look and texture.
Using skincare products containing green apple will also help to brighten the skin, this is because of the Malic Acid found in apples, in particular; the greens ones. Malic acid helps to improve hyperpigmentation by reducing the production of melanin, helping skin to look clearer, less sallow and give a bright complexion which glows.
