Are you ready to achieve a smooth, plump, and happy complexion with the power of fruit acids? Using a (chemical) exfoliant such as fruit acids in your skincare regimen can reduce the appearance of dull, uneven, and textured skin. Fruit acids work beautifully on all skin types and always leave the skin looking significantly more radiant. In this blog, we will break down everything you need to know about fruit acids and why our skin loves them.
What are fruit acids in skincare?
The word acid may seem scary when your delicate skin is involved, but there is no need for concern. Fruit acids found in skincare products are part of the alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) group. Like our skin, fruit acids also fall on the acidic end of the scale, typically ranging from three to four, making them gentle on the skin. Don't let the word acid steer you away from this result-driven ingredient. Many fruit acids found in skincare are derivatives of fruits such as papaya, pomegranate, and more. Many private label skincare manufacturers use a variety of different fruit acids sourced from fruits to sugar cane.
How often should you use fruit acids on your skin?
Not all fruit acid exfoliants are created the same. The concentration of the formula will determine how much to use. For instance, if you are using a more concentrated product like an at-home peel, using it once or twice a week is suggested. If you are unsure of a particular product, it's always best to contact an esthetician or a dermatologist.
What other skincare products should you use in addition to fruit acids?
The inclusion of fruit acids in your skincare regimen can make the difference between dull and luminous skin. They can keep skin feeling hydrated and healthy, and help you achieve a more youthful-looking, vibrant complexion in both the short and long term. However, fruit acids can cause photosensitivity making your skin more reactive to the sun, so remember to use SPF when using fruit acids in your skincare regimen. Now that we've gone a little in-depth about the power of fruit acids, it's time for you to add one to your skincare regimen (or maybe an addition to your private label skincare business). Whether you are looking to add a new private-label skincare product to your skincare line or level up your facial treatments, the addition of a fruit acid product will be a product your customers will love and notice a difference.
