A Natural Way to Exfoliate, Brighten, and Protect

Grapefruit is a delicious and nutritious citrus fruit that is also packed with skin benefits. Grapefruit peels are a repurposed ingredient of our natural and handmade soap bars. Grapefruit peels are rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, which can help to improve the appearance of your skin.

In this article, we will discuss the three biggest skin benefits of grapefruit and why it is a great ingredient for natural and handmade soap bars.

Botany and history of the grapefruit

Grapefruit is a citrus fruit that is believed to have originated in Southeast Asia. Grapefruit trees are evergreen trees that can grow to be up to 40 feet tall. This hybrid citrus comes from Barbados, where it was crossed by accident. Grapefruit (Citrus paradisi) is a cross between orange and pomelo. 

Citrus paradisi is known for its bitter yet sour to semi-sweet taste. Did you know that there are white, pink and red grapefruits? The darker the color, the sweeter it is generally.

Grapefruits, like oranges and other citrus fruits, are high in vitamin C. In fact, one whole, medium grapefruit provides you with 100% of your daily requirement for vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that is great for your immune system and can help you fight off viruses and bacteria that can cause disease.

Some diets even state that if you eat a grapefruit a day you will lose belly fat by night. Although claims of some magical fat-burning enzyme in grapefruits aren’t backed by research, studies have found grapefruit to be positively associated with weight loss.

3 biggest skin benefits of grapefruit

Exfoliates the Skin

Grapefruit is a good source of alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), which are natural exfoliants. AHAs help to remove dead skin cells, which can reveal brighter, more even skin underneath.

Brightens the Skin

Grapefruit is a good source of vitamin C, which is a natural antioxidant. Vitamin C helps to protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage cells and lead to premature aging. Vitamin C also helps to brighten the skin by reducing the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation.

Protects the Skin from Damage

Grapefruit is a good source of antioxidants, which help to protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals can damage cells and lead to premature aging, wrinkles, and fine lines. Antioxidants can help to neutralize free radicals and protect the skin from damage.

Conclusion

Grapefruit is a safe and effective natural ingredient that can benefit your skin in many ways. It is a good source of vitamins A and C, as well as antioxidants. These nutrients can help to exfoliate, brighten, and protect your skin.

If you are looking for a natural way to improve your skin health, consider using products that contain grapefruit, such as our natural and handmade soap bars.
