Blueberries are widely recognised as powerful, antioxidant rich, superfruit. Blueberry extract is packed with vitamins which can help to promote skin cell turnover, soothe skin inflammation, treat dark pigmented areas and overall help firm, tighten, plump and hydrate tired skin.

Blueberry extract is an excellent ingredient for products with a focus on collagen and/or after sun care, as blueberries are very high in vitamin C. Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin which, when applied topically, is said to help promote skin cell turnover, wound healing and collagen production and stabilisation.

Topical vitamin C is said to help protect the skin from UV damage (though is not a substitute for sunscreen) caused by prolonged sun exposure by reducing the amount of free radical formation and sunburn cells. Exposure to UV light has also shown to decrease the naturally occurring vitamin C levels in the skin, making the topical application of vitamin C helpful in restoring these photo protectant levels.

Blueberries are also notably high in anthocyanin, an antioxidant-like substance, which can help to repair damaged skin and promote positive growth, aid in collagen production and lower collagen breakdown.

Blueberry extract also contains resveratrol, which can help by neutralising free radicals and boosting antioxidant levels, so your skin can better defend and repair itself, as well as helping to prevent sun damage and subsequent signs of premature ageing as such fine lines.

Blueberry extract can also be helpful for products focused on skin inflammation due to oxidative stress, such as acne, eczema and psoriasis. 

Blueberry extract can be incorporated into a wide variety of nourishing, water based, skin and hair care products such as:
Face creams
Eye creams
Gels
Toners
Facial mists
Cleansers
Lotions
Shower gels
Face masks
Shampoos
