Spotlight on Ingredients: Pineapple and Watermelon Extract

Posted by Sarah Bacon on

Everyone loves pineapples and watermelon, especially in the summertime – they’re the perfect refreshing snack. Watermelons and pineapples aren’t just good for you on the inside, though – they’re also good for you on the outside.

Did you know, for example, that pineapple is one of the fruit world’s most effective enzymes? This is just one of a long list of reasons why these two fruit extracts are great for including in natural beauty products. They’re some of the best ingredients to include in non-toxic skincare, which is why here at Velettá, we appreciate them so much. Let’s talk about these fruit extracts, and why they’re so good for you.

Why is Pineapple in Our Skincare?

You might have already noticed that there is pineapple and watermelon extract in our Youthful Glow Intensive Hydrating Treatment. We love using natural ingredients like this, and for a good reason – pineapple has some unique skincare benefits to offer all of us. The enzyme that is found in pineapple extract is strong enough to break down proteins in your skin that are responsible for unwanted build-up, yet on the flip side, gentle enough to calm your skin and reduce redness. By using fruit extracts like this, we're rejuvenating your skin naturally, without the use of toxic chemicals.

Pineapple extract is also an amazing exfoliant, which again is why you'll find it in our hydrating treatment. It's excellent for acne-prone skin and can help with dark spots and other blemishes you may have. 

What About Watermelon?

You might have noticed that the beauty industry is going through a bit of a watermelon phase, especially when summer hits. However, where there are natural skincare products, there are also artificial ones as well that include what they think is 'watermelon,' which actually turns out to be toxic to your skin. Our watermelon extract is straight from the fruit, which means that it is naturally packed full of antioxidants, which can help your skin fight some of those nasty toxins. Similar to pineapple, it's also great for exfoliating as well, which is going to keep those pesky whiteheads at bay. 

If you love both of these fruits, and you love the idea of using them on your face to help with blemishes and acne-prone skin, then make the most of our luxurious, natural skincare range.

When Nature Comes to You

One of the things that we appreciate the most at Velettá is being able to make beautiful skincare products that contain only the best ingredients for your skin. This is why we offer an extensive skincare range that is natural, made right here in New Zealand and is cruelty-free and vegan. We understand the demand in the market for natural skincare that really is natural – and isn't just false advertising. When you use Velettá products like our Intensive Hydrating Treatment, you really are experiencing some of the most natural skincare ingredients on the market. For a reviving, natural start to the day, try our Facial Cleansing Oil, then follow it up with our Facial Moisturizer. We all want the best for our skin, and with Velettá, we truly believe that you can achieve this.
