ATOMCARE™ Strawberry Extract
A strawberry is an aggregate of several small fruits, each containing one single seed called ‘achene’. Strawberries contain alpha-hydroxy acid, which is an important substance that helps eliminate dead skin cells and cleanses the skin in the process. Strawberries have skin-lightening properties, which can be attributed to the presence of ellagic acid in them. This acid, as already discussed, eliminates blemishes and spots. The antioxidants present in strawberries protect the skin from UV damage. Strawberries also contain vitamin B complex, glucose, carotene, and amino acids, all of which help improve the complexion. The antioxidants present in strawberries give them their amazing toning properties. The manganese present in strawberries also helps tone the skin, keeping it healthy and radiant. Strawberry extracts have also been found to enhance cell survival and decrease DNA damage. Strawberries are also great sources of lycopene, an antioxidant that plays a prominent role in staving off the signs of aging. The anthocyanins present in strawberries protect the skin from oxidative stress, thereby slowing down aging. Strawberries contain amazing astringent properties that help treat puffy eyes. The mild abrasive properties of strawberries help exfoliate the skin and make the fruit ideal to be used as a foot scrub.
