Cucumber Fruit Extract
Helps soothe skin irritation and enhances hydration.
The cucumber plant is a vine that spreads out horizontally rather than growing up trellises or other supporting structures. The plant's large leaves form a canopy over the fruits, which it produces in great quantity. Cucumber fruits consist of 95% water (see nutrition table). In botanical terms, the cucumber is classified as a pepo, a type of botanical berry with a hard outer rind and no internal divisions.
The cucumber extract is a natural cleanser that is used to relieve redness and acne. It can also be applied to the skin so as to get rid of the oiliness within it.
Cucumber extract is a great hydrating agent for skin because of its water content. As a result, this ingredient can be used in formulations to improve hydration and skin appearance.
Busy schedules often mean dark circles and puffy eyes. Cucumber is an effective, natural way to get rid of both. It's a cooling ingredient that also has antioxidant benefits and silica which help to refresh the skin.
Cucumbers contain a good amount of antioxidants that help to lighten the skin and remove any inflammation. They also help to reduce excessive oil and clean out pores.
Manganese and potassium in cucumber are excellent for tightening and firming up skin. It also has the ability to reduce signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles.
