Why we use Bilberry
The Kokoa Way: We create effective products by using science as our foundation, and nature as our solution.
Bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus) is one of the richest natural sources of anthocyanins. These polyphenolic components give bilberry its blue/black colour and high antioxidant content, and they are believed to be the key bioactives responsible for the many reported health benefits of bilberry and other berry fruits.
Bilberry is known to strengthen skin against signs of redness, due to its calming properties. Bilberry can also boost skin’s environmental defenses in the presence of UVA light.
While many vitamins act as antioxidants, bilberry leaf extract has been shown to be ten times more effective in inhibiting free radicals through the highest amounts of vitamins than pure vitamin C or vitamin E alone. Vitamins aid in your skin’s natural regeneration process, which helps your body repair damaged skin cells.
