Cucumber Extract Skin Benefits:
Cucumber extract or cucumber oil possesses high concentrations of antioxidants, ascorbic acid, and lactic acid. Therefore, when topically applied, the benefits of cucumber on skin include antioxidant protection and soothing properties.
The antioxidants and ascorbic acid present in cucumber extract protect the skin by neutralizing harmful free-radicals that are present in the environment. Additionally, its high concentration of lactic acid, a known member of the AHA family, also plays a role in maintaining skin surface quality. Lastly, cucumber extract is believed to possess several bioactive compounds that provide soothing properties to the skin. However, the efficacy of this effect has yet to be scientifically supported. 1
