Skin Benefits And Uses Of Kiwifruit Extract (Skin)

Kiwifruit Extract benefits for skin

Kiwifruit Extract is an elixir of nutrients that helps nourish, support and regenerate, revealing vibrant, refreshed skin. It is one of nature’s most wonderful fruits, a handheld superfood that when used in skin care products can not only help support the health of cells beneath the skin’s surface, but also slough off dead skin cells, revealing the refreshed, revitalized cells beneath.

Kiwifruit contains the enzyme actinidin, which helps manage both dead skin cells and the dirt that accumulate on the skin over the course of the day.

Kiwifruit Extract, a fruit acid, also works to help balance healthy pH level in the skin. Kiwifruit is packed with antioxidants that work like superheroes to fight free radicals that damage skin by targeting the skin’s most important proteins, collagen and elastin, so skin loses elasticity and radiance.

When kiwifruit Extract’s antioxidants go to work, existing collagen and elastic cells are supported, and new cells – which tend to slow in production with age - are encouraged, so as the surface cells are eradicated, more beautiful, healthier skin is revealed.

Kiwifruit has vitamin C, which helps fight dark spots that are associated with both sun damage and aging, so skin looks more evenly toned.

Kiwifruit is also rich in vitamin E, another powerhouse antioxidant that fights aging by supporting collagen and elastin proteins from free radical damage.

Not only that, it also is a moisturizer, helping to leave skin smooth and supple. With regular use, skin may appear thicker and more radiant, with fewer fine lines and wrinkles, as though years have been erased.

Uses of Kiwifruit Extract

Kiwifruit Extract is also packed with enzymes that help support the digestive system and the immune system by managing the healthy levels of prebiotics that feed existing probiotics while encouraging the production of new ones.

Source and sustainability of Kiwifruit Extract

The majority of New Zealand’s kiwifruit are grown along the Bay of Plenty, and the organic growers – from whom Xtend-Life sources its Kiwifruit Extract – produce sustainable fruit while leaving behind a small environmental footprint.
