Ananas Sativus (Pineapple) Fruit Extract
Pineapple fruit extract is a botanical ingredient derived from the core and stem of the fruit of the pineapple (Ananas sativus, also known as Ananas comosus). This ingredient can be used in skincare to gently refresh and enliven skin.
Pineapple fruit extract is an antioxidant-rich ingredient with numerous skin-beneficial compounds, including vitamin C. It contains an enzyme mixture called bromelain, which has been shown to have mild skin-soothing properties. It also contains Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), which work to remove dead skin cells through gentle exfoliation, while helping to restore moisture and maintain the skin's protective layer.
