We all know that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but turns out apples are also a powerful source of anti-aging magic! Acidic apple extract helps to protect the skin from free radical damage which in turn helps to slow the signs of aging and apple oil contains essential fatty acids that hydrate and plump skin. Listed most commonly as pyrus malus extract, oil, or powder, apples are a secret ingredient that add natural exfoliants, antioxidants, and skin-conditioners to some of our favorite skin and hair care products.
