Apple Extract Skin Benefits:
Apple fruit extract comes from the fruit species Malus domestic in the Rosaceae family. Apple extract is believed to provide many benefits as it is highly packed with powerful polyphenols and antioxidants. The extract from apple leaves contains high concentrations of phenolic compounds and flavonoids, which are useful in providing anti-aging effects. Epithelial renewal in the skin is caused by the constant turnover and differentiation of keratinocytes. In addition, uses of apple fruit for skin include antioxidant protection, which helps protect the skin by neutralizing free-radicals present in the environment, thus allowing skin to look younger and healthier.
