Organic pineapple extract
Pineapple is not only good in cocktails, desserts, or on Hawaiian toast, it also has several skin-care properties that the cosmetics industry takes advantage of. Combine the exotic, fruity scent with valuable ingredients. Vitamins, fruit acids, minerals, trace elements, and the enzyme bromelain make the organic pineapple extract a real beauty weapon against dry and inflamed skin.
Organic pineapple extract, which is obtained from pineapple fruits, impresses with its mix of vitamins A, C, and E, which is supposed to protect the skin from free radicals and restore it with moisture. The minerals in organic pineapple extract support the natural immune defense. In conjunction with the fruit acids and bromelain, there is even a slight peeling effect that is supposed to tighten and smooth the skin. The skin can shine again, has a fresh, rosy complexion and becomes more supple. Smaller wrinkles can be reduced. In addition, the enzyme bromelain, a plant protease, provides an anti-inflammatory and slightly decongestant effect of the organic pineapple extract. The organic pineapple extract is therefore particularly popular in anti-aging care, especially for the eye area, and in anti-acne care. Together with the vitamin C, smaller pigment spots and freckles can also be lightened. However, caution is advised when sunbathing afterwards, as the skin is more sensitive to UV radiation after treatment with the organic pineapple extract, although it actually suits hot, tropical days.
The bromelain contained in organic pineapple extract can also be used in naturopathy. It is said to relax the muscles, stimulate digestion, and support oral hygiene. Sometimes you notice a tingling effect in your mouth after eating pineapple. The bromelain works for minor injuries in the oral mucosa.
The indigenous people of Paraguay also called the pineapple „the delicious fruit”. Christopher Columbus seemed to have found it similar, since he brought her home with him in the 15th century. Attempts to grow in Europe, however, failed until the 19th century. The planting experiment was only successful in the greenhouse. The pineapple plant belongs to the tropical bromeliads and grows about one meter high and shrub-like, with its leaves sprouting rosette-shaped directly from the earth and in the middle of which sits the tasty fruit with yellow pulp. It is somewhat reminiscent of a cone with a prickly, green tuft of leaves . The fruit is actually an intergrowth of several seedless berries.
