Strawberry Spotlight: Nature's Skincare Marvel

Fragaria vesca, commonly known as strawberries, are more than just a delightful treat. These small, conical, and fragrant red "faux berries" are a powerhouse of benefits for your skin and hair.

Origin and History

Strawberries, despite their name, aren't true berries. Their seeds sit proudly on their surface, unlike typical berries. Belonging to the rose family, strawberries are a perennial herbaceous plant thriving in the Northern Hemisphere. Their journey from wild forests to our skincare regimens is a testament to their enduring appeal and effectiveness.

Health and Skincare Benefits

Packed with more Vitamin C than oranges, strawberries are a natural source of minerals, folic acid, omega-3 fatty acids, and potent antioxidants. In the realm of skincare, these vibrant fruits are soothing, astringent, and firming, making them an excellent natural toner.

Antioxidant Powerhouse

Strawberries help protect your skin against environmental aggressors like UV rays and pollution. Their rich antioxidant content combats signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines, promoting a youthful complexion.

Acne and Oil Control

Rich in salicylic acid, strawberries are a natural remedy for acne and clogged pores. They reduce excess sebum production, combat inflammation, and help achieve clear, glowing skin.

Brightening and Healing

Ellagic acid in strawberries targets hyperpigmentation and dark spots, while their astringent properties tighten pores and slough away dead skin cells.

Haircare Benefits

The benefits of strawberries extend to your hair and scalp too. Their natural acids can help in reducing scalp oiliness and encourage a healthy, vibrant mane.

The Essence of Strawberries in Skincare

Strawberry Distillate Water: This aromatic water, a byproduct of fruit juice concentration, infuses skincare products with a natural strawberry fragrance and antioxidant benefits.

Strawberry Extract: It imparts a sweet, juicy taste to oral care products, refreshing breath, and also acts as a skin toner.

Dried Strawberry: We freeze-dry and dehydrate strawberries in-house for our products, harnessing their antioxidant properties to combat aging signs.

Fresh Strawberry Infusion: Used traditionally to soothe skin irritations, we create our infusion by steeping fresh strawberries in hot water.

Strawberry Flour: The fibrous residue of strawberries, rich in nutrients, finds its way into our skincare products for its rejuvenating properties.

Historical Use

From folk remedies to the luxurious strawberry baths of Madame Tallien from Napoleon's court, strawberries have a rich history in skincare.
