Bearberry Fruit Extract Powder
Bearberry is an herbal, trailing evergreen plant (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi) of the heath family with astringent foliage and red berries. You may have heard about it before as its leaves are best known and historically used to treat bladder and urinary tract infections.
With all its promising compounds, including berberine, which acts as an antioxidant, bearberry extract is probably one of the best anti-aging skincare ingredients out there. It is a natural alternative to hydroquinone and is generally safe for all skin types. Since bearberry extract is equipped with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial properties. it can help us look fresh, radiant, and ageless.
Bearberry is well known for being a natural source of Arbutin derivatives that have skin-brightening properties. The scientific literature describes the fresh plant chemistry as containing between 5-7% Arbutin with the dried herb typically containing 20-28%. In addition to the brightening complex, this fruit also contains phenolic acids such as Ursolic Acid which is an anti-inflammatory, regenerative active.
Benefits of Bearberry Fruit Extract Powder in Skincare:
Avoid Premature Skin Aging: We know how harsh the sun can be to our skin. Bearberry extract helps keep our skin healthy. It has sun protection properties that can inhibit the negative effects of UV radiation. When we repeatedly use bearberry extract, we can prevent our skin from aging prematurely
Keep Wrinkles at Bay: Wrinkles are one of the first visible signs of aging. To help us maintain a youthful look, bearberry extract reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on our skin. It soothes irritated skin and calms inflammation, which can accelerate the formation of wrinkles.
Help Even Out Skin Tone: Bearberry extract is a natural skin brightener that’ll help us attain a more uniform and brighter complexion. It slowly evens out skin tone by eliminating age spots, acne scars, freckles, and melisma.
Diminish Dark Spots: As we grow older, dark spots slowly appear in areas that are repeatedly exposed to the sun. To correct these hyper-pigmentation problems, we will need arbutin which can also be found in bearberry extract. arbutin is a natural substance that can help lighten dark spots and stop an enzyme from producing more pigment on our skin.
Minimizes the Effects of Free Radicals: Bearberry extract is packed with antioxidants that can help neutralize free radicals. It prevents these unstable atoms from damaging our cells and accelerating our skin’s aging process.
