Sweet, melting, delicious, super-vitamin pineapple is also the perfect exotic touch for your back-to-school beauty rituals.
“Perfume of perfumes,” this is how the Indians of South America named their sublime fruit, by the word “nana,” which gave “pineapple.” First appreciated for its gustatory virtues, this tropical delicacy revealed its medicinal and cosmetic secrets belatedly, half a century ago, on the occasion of scientific studies demonstrating its anti-inflammatory and anti-edematous properties, thanks to its bromelain (or bromelain) content in particular. An asset against cellulite, but not only. Pineapple would also relieve osteoarthritis, colds, burns, and wounds… And who can do the most for health guarantees the best for the beauty and firmness of the skin? We want pineapple in our lotions, creams, gels, and perfumes!
Its four main assets
Its exterior sophistication reflects the complexity and richness of its secret chemistry, to make it:
An ideal slimming partner: the precious bromelain enzyme, highly concentrated in the juicy flesh of pineapple, helps to limit water retention and cellulite. To taste and apply to the skin.
A powerful renovating agent: this same enzyme also effectively eliminates dead cells to provide a nice boost of radiance, both to the skin and to the hair fibers.
A natural anti-aging asset: its content of polyphenols, beta-carotene, and vitamin C with antioxidant power wards off the effect of free radicals and helps slow down skin aging.
A divine suave fragrance: addictive and slightly regressive, it envelops us in a sweet sweetness for more sensuality.
