From superfood to skincare! Why mountain pepper berry extract is Biologi’s next highly performing ingredient!
Mountain pepper is a native shrub grown in abundance in the cooler, wetter climates of Tasmania and the south-east Australian mainland.
The small purple berries are sweet to taste but, as the name suggests, laced with spicy tones to give recipes and condiments a kick!
While mountain pepper has been used by Indigenous people as a superfood for generations, it’s significant antioxidant potential means it also doubles as a traditional medicine. Commonly crushed and made into a paste, Indigenous people would take advantage of the antioxidant and antiseptic properties and apply directly to toothache and other infections.
Rich in phytonutrients, mountain berry extract is not only an excellent tonic for the body but it’s fast becoming a sought-after ingredient in skincare too.
And we couldn’t think of a better ingredient to help us celebrate Biologi’s THIRD BIRTHDAY!
With flavone glycosides, chlorogenic acid, rutin and anthocyanin all working in synergy, mountain berry extract can nourish, heal and protect skin cells, just as it does in the plant.
Read on to find out why mountain pepper berry extract has been chosen as the extract for our limited edition B3 Anti-Ageing Serum!
While eating nutrient-dense foods helps to build antioxidant protection, applying directly to the skin also helps protect against free radical damage that causes dehydration, premature ageing and inflammation.
Mountain pepper berry contains greater antioxidant potential than even the humble blueberry. Applying to the skin can help strengthen cells and counteract free radical damage while balancing the complexion to give an all-over glow.
Reduces the visible signs of ageing
Flavonoids such as anthocyanins can naturally prevent the breakdown of collagen associated with ageing. As a rich source of vitamin C and vitamin E, mountain berry may also help reduce those tell-tale signs of getting older such as fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin.
While nourishing our body with nutrient-dense foods helps to reduce internal inflammation, nourishing the skin with those same nutrients can have even better results. As a rich source of natural vitamin C, applying mountain pepper berry topically can reduce inflammation, reduce redness, calm angry skin and revive a dull complexion.
Reduces dark circles
Dark circles are caused by the thinning of the skin under the eyes leaving red blood vessels and capillaries exposed. Rutin is a flavonoid that helps regenerate cells to strengthen the outer layer of skin and reduce the visibility of dark circles helping you look more energised and yes, dare we say it…radiant!
