The Magic of Fruit Enzymes: Unlocking Bright, Soft & Healthy Skin.

Fruit Enzymes + Veg Out Organics Enzymatic Exfoliator

By now you are probably aware of the importance of exfoliation for a smoother and more radiant complexion, but how familiar are you with enzymatic exfoliation? And if you are familiar, perhaps you're wondering if it's right for your skin.

What are fruit enzymes and how do they work?

Fruit enzymes are found typically in tropical fruits like pineapple, papaya, guava or kiwi, and also in fruits like pumpkin. These compounds naturally break down proteins anprovide a thorough exfoliation, but are gentler than rough scrubs.

The upper layer of our skin, the epidermis, is composed primarily of dry and dead skin cells which contain a protein called keratin. When fruit enzymes are applied to the skin, the keratin protein will naturally break down, removing impurities and damaged surface cells to reveal smoother skin.

Unlike acidic exfoliants (AHA's and BHA's), fruit enzymes, by their nature, only work on the surface, whereas acids will penetrate deep into the skin. For acne-prone skin or sensitive skin where AHA or BHA exfoliants may be too harsh, fruit enzyme exfoliators could be a better solution, and gentle enough to use as part of a daily skincare regimen. 

Many times a physical facial scrub can be too abrasive and leave skin irritated and red, however, fruit enzymes have a natural cut-off point for dissolving dry and dead skin cells which means that it's impossible to over-exfoliate the skin. Fruit enzymes also provide the skin with an array of minerals, vitamins, essential fatty acids and alpha-hydroxy acids.
Veg Out Organics nutrient rich skincare line includes an array of products that are created with the beauty of the earth’s natural exfoliants, packed with fruit enzymes like pumpkin, pineapple, and papaya to provide your skin with gentle and thorough exfoliation. 
Fruit enzymes can be incorporated into your skincare routine via a cleanser, exfoliator, or mask. These are the products we'd suggest adding to your daily glow skin care routine. 
Veg Out Organics Glow Bright Cleanser is a creamy, antioxidant rich cleanser deliciously complimented with papaya and pineapple enzymes, helping to remove dead skin cells and debris. Pineapple is a member of the Bromeliaceae plant family and contains a mix of bromelain enzymes that gently exfoliate skin and also contain anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties.
Essential Mask Veg Out Organics a Vegan Face MaskVeg Out Organics Essential Mask is an indulgent mask that literally feels like a spa facial in a jar! It's packed with aloe vera juice, neroli and almond oils, vitamin E, and of course pumpkin and papaya enzymes. This nutrient dense mask provides an excellent defense against the signs of aging as it helps to stimulate cell turnover, promotes the formation of new collagen, and helps to soften and smooth existing fine lines and wrinkles.

The pumpkin enzyme left on for a longer period of time with a mask application really opens up the skin's pores allowing for better absorption of any skincare products applied after. Take advantage of this by applying a nutrient-rich serum (Vitamin C+ Serum) and moisturizer full of antioxidants (Skin Perfect Moisturizer) following your mask treatment, as it will penetrate the skin more effectively. Your skin will drink it in.
