SKINFOOD’ s Fresh Apple line is a pore-refining skincare line which uses fresh, unripe green apple extracts and sparkling mineral water to create a smooth, matte appearance.
Why does an apple a day keep the doctor away?
Unripe green apples have a bitter taste because of the high amount of tannins. It is naturally occurring, found in plants, seeds, bark, wood, leaves, and fruit skins. Unsweetened black tea is an example of nearly pure tannins, dissolved in water. Also found in wine, tannins are effective in normalizing pore size and tightening inelastic skin by eliminating free radicals and fighting bacteria. Fresh unripe green apples also contain a high amount of pectin, which is a water-soluble fiber. Found in the skin of green apples, pectin is a popular cosmetic ingredient, especially to treat enlarged pores, because it strengthens and tightens pores and normalizes sebum production. It’ s one of our most popular skin care lines because of its comprehensive anti-aging and pore-tightening effects!
It all begins with water
The mineral water used in SKINFOOD’ s Fresh Apple skincare line is sourced from the limestone strata of Cho Jung, South Korea. It is enriched with minerals, which help smooth and hydrate skin. One of the world’ s best carbonated waters to nourish skin, it currently holds the majority market share in South Korea, and its popularity for both nutritional and cosmetic use is skyrocketing.
So what’ s it all good for?
This line is ideal for tackling issues with oily skin and enlarged pores. SKINFOOD’ s Fresh Apple line is so versatile, it can be used by both men and women! Green apple extracts address these concerns in four ways:
- They inhibit enzyme activity that causes excessive sebum production.
- The tannins cleanse and tighten pores.
- They stimulate protein synthesis, which works to normalize the keratinous layer in skin, strengthening the skin barrier.
- They help synthesize collagen, which firms and smooths skin.
