Ingredients We Love: Blueberry Fruit Extract

Botanical ingredients are a dime a dozen, with florals and fruit extracts regularly cycling in and out of holy grail status. If we were to name a David to help counter the Goliath of certain delicate skin woes, however, it would be the tiny but mighty blueberry. The blueberry packs a lot of punch considering its size, with internal benefits as well as powerful skincare benefits attributed to the cocktail of nutrients it contains!

The blueberry’s glow-getting abilities have helped it transcend from simply being trendy to an everyday glow staple, especially for those with delicate or easily irritated skin looking to combat dullness and dryness. Below, we get into what’s blueberry fruit extract, what it does, and what we use it in!

What is Blueberry Fruit Extract?

Also known as Vaccinum Angustifolium extract, this natural ingredient is known for its antioxidant benefits and skin-conditioning effects. Blueberry fruit extract is rich in polyphenols, a type of antioxidant that helps combat oxidative stress and inflammation in the body. This extract is also rich in Vitamin C, an antioxidant vitamin that’s known to have a brightening effect on skin.

What does Blueberry Fruit Extract do?

Its high antioxidant content makes blueberry fruit extract highly popular when it comes to skincare. Blueberries have much higher antioxidant levels compared to other fruits, which help our bodies combat damage from free radicals. Used in a skincare or skincare-makeup formula, the antioxidants from blueberry fruit extract help mitigate the effect of UV rays and other oxidative stressors.

If you’ve got sensitive or delicate skin that doesn’t take too well to stronger actives, formulas with blueberry fruit extract should be on your beauty shopping list! Blueberry fruit extract works on a cellular level to combat skin dullness, dryness, and texture; it softens skin, aids in moisture retention, helps improve the way dead skin cells are shed, and gives a nourishing boost to the new cells that replace them to make skin appear brighter and healthier. As a bonus, blueberry fruit extract’s Vitamin C content helps minimize pigmentation and discoloration, and contributes to reducing uneven skin texture.

What do we use Blueberry Fruit Extract in?

You can find blueberry fruit extract in the Original Glow BB Foundie!

Since blueberry fruit extract is packed with powerful antioxidants and polyphenols, it’s a great complementary ingredient to your daily sun care routine to help skin recover from sun damage. It also works well with other stable antioxidant-packed ingredients like Camellia Sinensis (green tea) leaf extract in combating inflammation and helping manage the skin’s moisture balance.

The Original Glow BB Foundie formula works two ways: it shields against UV damage with Mineral Skin Shield, and mitigates free radical damage, minimizes inflammation, and helps brighten skin with its blueberry fruit extract boost!
