An organic glycerine extract of acerola fruit giving a moisturising and rich, hydrating product.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A colourless to pale yellow/green mobile liquid with a very faint aroma made from an extraction of acerola fruit into vegetable glycerine.
 
The vegetable glycerine is an excellent humectant which helps to keep the skin moist and hydrated.
 
As well as this, the extract is beneficial in all anti-ageing creams, lotions, gels and serums.
As this is a natural product, there may be some changes in colouration, cloudiness or sediment.
 
The individual materials that make up Acerola Fruit Glycerol Extract are listed on the Cosmetic Ingredient Database (CosIng) which can be found here.

HOW TO USE IT

Use at 3%-6%.
 
It is safe to use at higher amounts but there is a possibility that the end product may feel a little sticky.
 
It is water-soluble so cannot be used in oil-only blends.
 
Once opened, do not leave the cap off the bottle whilst you are working.
 
After use, squeeze some of the air out of the bottle to reduce potential oxidation before sealing tightly.
 
Combine in a product with Wu Zhu Extract and Algaktiv Zen to give tired looking skin a super boost.
Skin Care
The Acerola Fruit Extract is a moisturising antioxidant which is excellent for tired, stressed skin.
 
As it is antimicrobial and anti-fungal, it is a good choice for use in foot care gels and creams.
 
Hair Care
Helps to keep the scalp hydrated in hair conditioners and hair packs.
 
Store in a cool, dry place. Protect from freezing and direct sunlight.
