So, what makes herbal strawberry face scrub so good for your skin?
Strawberry contains ellagic acid in a high ratio. This acid keeps the collagen from breaking down or getting destroyed, which in turn prevents wrinkles and keeps the skin smooth and supple.
The high antioxidant content of the strawberry forms a protective layer on the skin, safeguarding it against the damaging free radicals.
Other than that, strawberry contains a good amount of vitamin C, which lightens skin tone, clears out acne, energizes dry skin and bolsters the regeneration of new skin cells!
With so many benefits, it is no wonder why manufacturers are clamouring to roll out beauty products that are infused with the wholesome benefits of a strawberry!
