Fig/Lemon Ferment – found in the LaFlore® Live Probiotic Serum Concentrate
We’d like to take a moment to give some thanks for our spotlight ingredient this week because it’s often been overlooked when it comes to nutrition, which is unfortunate because it’s a ton of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients crammed into a tiny package.
Figs are often overlooked when it comes to nutrition, and this is unfortunate because they’re a ton of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients crammed into a tiny package. They provide vitamins B1, B2, C, and A. They contain omega fatty acids and essential antioxidants. They’re delicious. What’s not to love?
Figs have also been overlooked as a fantastic skin care ingredient, until now. The nutritional properties of figs provide tons of benefits for the skin when used topically:
- They’re an excellent acne remedy, and boost clearer skin due to their high mineral and fiber contents. They also support clearer skin by helping to control oil and tighten pores.
- Figs contain lots of vitamin C, which works wonders to even out skin tone and brighten the complexion.
- They work as a great exfoliator because of the powerful, active enzymes they contain. These enzymes work to remove dead skin cells and cleanse the skin of particulates.
Fermented Lemon Peel Extract
For many of us, whenever we hear the word “ferment,” it has connotations of aging and bubbling in bacteria. Well, guess what? That’s precisely how lemon peel extract is processed, and it is an amazing, powerful ingredient for delivering antioxidants and probiotics when used as an ingredient in skin care products.
Creating fermented lemon peel extract is a surprisingly simple process. Lemons are crushed and fermented with lactobacillus (yep, the same beneficial bacteria found in yogurt) to activate the properties of the peel that makes such a vital addition to quality, natural probiotic skin care products.
You may have noticed the fiber, minerals, vitamin C, antioxidants, and probiotics are all ingredients you’ll find in LaFlore® Live Probiotic Serum Concentrate. Our Serum is a powerhouse of all the great things nature has to offer to cultivate beautiful, radiant skin.
Speaking of great things nature has to offer- we’d be remiss if we didn’t bring up the fact that thanksgiving is two weeks away! We’re already thinking about the things we’re thankful for. Our clients are up there at the top of the list. We don’t have to tell you that beautifying people for a living is a noble cause, thanks for all that you do. Keep on boosting confidence and cultivating wellness!
