Why we use Strawberry
The Kokoa Way: We create effective products by using science as our foundation, and nature as our solution.
Strawberries contain antioxidants, vitamins, and other nutrients that can provide benefits to your skin.
Strawberries are rich in antioxidants, including ellagic acid and anthocyanin. Ellagic acid applied topically has been shown to reduce skin damage from the sun’s UV rays by inhibiting certain enzymes that contribute to the collagen breakdown, and by diminishing inflammatory responses.
Strawberries have astringent properties that can help provide a natural way to treat puffiness in the eye area and reduce inflammation.
Strawberries also contain salicylic acid, a beta hydroxy acid which can help reduce hyperpigmentation and dark spots. The vitamin C in strawberries can also contribute to keeping skin healthy and vibrant, working as a toner to soothe irritated skin.
Fragaria Vesca (Wild Strawberry) leaves have been shown to have antiseptic, emollient, and dermatological protection properties, due to the presence of bioactive compounds, such as flavonoids.
