While we all love actives like retinol and AHAs, when it comes to achieving a megawatt glow, nothing does it better than nature. And that’s where you’ll find the three superfruits that make up our Australian Glow BerriesTM complex. In the incredible Aussie outback, to be precise.
Used for centuries, native fruits Emu Apple, Riberry and Pepperberry are bursting with potent antioxidants and skin-loving vitamins. And if you’re all about that radiance? You’d better believe you’ll want to add Glow Berries to your routine!
Read on to discover their many benefits – and the multi-tasking moisturiser where you’ll find them.
What does our Australian Glow Berries complex do for your skin?
Nourishing, brightening and protecting the skin against free radicals and visible signs of premature ageing, our Australian Glow BerriesTM complex leaves skin soft, plump and oh-so glowing. How does it work to revitalise dull skin? Let’s explore the unique properties and benefits of our three super-berries.
Australian Emu Apple (or Muntries)
Yes, we know it’s called an apple, but this native fruit is actually a berry. (Go figure.) And it’s also a bit of a national treasure, with triple the antioxidant power of blueberries. These antioxidants prevent free radicals from wrecking biological havoc (via oxidisation) on your healthy cells, thus preventing outcomes like dullness and wrinkles or fine lines. With a high natural wax content, muntries also help defeat dryness by fortifying the skin barrier against moisture loss.
Also known as Lilli Pilli, Riberry nourishes the skin with essential minerals including magnesium, calcium and potassium. Your calming complexion companion, it’s packed with anti-inflammatory compounds that help soothe skin that’s dull, dehydrated or overwhelmed by the stresses of daily life. Plus, it also contains Flavone Glycosides which help maximise penetration of other skin-loving ingredients for a smooth and radiant complexion.
Want plump, youthful-looking skin? Tasmanian Pepperberry is a small but mighty berry that helps boost collagen production while encouraging skin cell turnover for a lit-from-within glow. Accelerating your skin’s renewal system, Pepperberry promotes skin elasticity for a firm and supple complexion.
Glow Berries does three main things: protect, nourish and hydrate. A serious free-radical bounty hunter, it provides instant and long-lasting anti-oxidative protection. Upon application, it immediately yields a 5% boost in your skin's antioxidant effect, and 24 hours later, this efficacy goes up 19%.
The complex's skin hydration-boosting capabilities come from its ability to induce Hyaluronic acid production by 19% and strengthening of the skin barrier to prevent water loss. How much more hydrated can you get, exactly? See a 29% moisture boost upon application, and a further 10% boost 24 hours later.
Together, these antioxidant-charged berries are your dream team for daily protection against environmental damage, dark spots, dull skin and dryness. We did the math so you don't have to, and all these numbers add up to only one answer: that we absolutely NEED to give you a skincare range with this amazing ingredient.
