Pineapple Powder Fruit Extract - 100 grams
Botanical Name: Ananas Comosus

Pineapple Powder is known to contain the fruit enzyme 'bromelain'. It is an effective exfoliant that sloughs off dead cells on the surface of the skin while imparting benefits. It can also act as an astringent to use in facial toners. Pineapple Powder is also a wonderful source of natural color and adds a sharp, crisp citrus-like scent that adds to its cleansing and invigorating properties.
Recommended Usage: The maximum quantity of powdered fruit extract should not exceed 0.5% of the total product, while in tincture form the maximum amount of fruit extract must not exceed 5%.
Note: The fruit extracts possess all the nutrients and beneficial properties of the fruit, but may or may not have the aroma of the actual fruit. Fruit extracts are meant for adding nourishing properties to the formulation and not for scenting the products.
