Botanical extracts that help support skin health are some of our favorite ingredients out there. Along with everyday mineral skin protection essentials, botanical actives are up there on our list of daily skincare staples!
We’re all about finding more ways to get you that radiant, much-coveted glass skin, so here’s another juicy fruit extract glow getter you should know more about — Citrus Nobilis fruit extract!
Read on to find out where it comes from, how it works, and what we use it in:
What is Citrus Nobilis Fruit Extract?
You know those juicy Mandarin oranges commonly cultivated in Japan, China, and India? Citrus Nobilis Fruit Extract is derived from the peel of these oranges for use in food and cosmetics as flavoring and scent.
There's more to this ingredient than taste and smell, however; Citrus Nobilis Fruit Extract is a botanical active that’s packed with vitamins C, E, and A. Mandarin oranges also contain a flavonoid called hesperidin, making the fruit extract a veritable antioxidant powerhouse.
What does Citrus Nobilis Fruit Extract do?
Citrus Nobilis fruit extract is primarily known for its antioxidant properties. Its vitamin C and E content helps combat dullness by repairing free radical damage, improving skin cell turnover, smoothing out texture over time, for skin that’s healthier, brighter, and noticeably more radiant.
Individuals looking to eliminate skin discoloration, uneven skintone, and hyperpigmentation may find formulas with Citrus Nobilis fruit extract a valuable addition to their skin routine. Avoiding products containing citrus extracts? Formulas with gentler concentrations and infused with other skin-soothing ingredients can help with brightening dark spots and eliminating dullness without the risk of irritation!
What we use it in
You can find Citrus Nobilis fruit extract in the Glass Skin Glow Cooling Facial Spray! This crowd favorite imparts an immediate glow to the skin with fine highlighting minerals, while its citrus infusion helps skin grow more radiant over time.
The Glass Skin Glow face mist also contains Rosa Centifolia extract (Read: Ingredients We Love - Rosa Centifolia Extract) for nourishing moisture, reducing irritation, and a brightening boost, as well as Aloe Barbadensis leaf extract to soothe and calm redness while hydrating the skin. All of these ingredients work together for skin that’s bright, radiant, and positively glowing!
