ACB Lemon Peel Extract G

Traditionally sourced for the Vitamin C content, lemons have been used as a natural remedy for ailments ranging from scurvy to sunburn. Given its relatively high acid content and potent antioxidant properties, it is no surprise this fruit is now promoted as a natural means to evening skin tone. Recent research has unveiled that the peel of the lemon itself has potent anti-tyrosinase activity. ACB Lemon Peel Extract G is a natural and effective alternative to hydroquinone for inhibiting tyrosinase production, perfect for those unsightly dark circles under the eyes. Using our traditional biofermentation approach we macerate the lemon and incubate it with Lactobacillus lactis. The fermentation process enhances the anti-tyrosinase activity of the lemon peel as well as its unique antioxidant properties. Balancing skin tone is an important aspect to address when developing cosmetic skin treatments, as is providing an antioxidant rich formulation. Tradionally used for its strong anti-oxidant benefits while more recently the peel has been found to possess strong anti-tyrosinase activity. ACB Lemon Peel Extract G is ideal for applications looking to capitalize on the use of botanical ingredients in achieving skin tone evening benefits.
