A lot of beauty products supposedly contain fruits, but in what way? No one’s been around squeezing fresh mango juice into a vat of your favourite shampoo. If that were the case, you’d have to store all such cosmetics in the refrigerator. “The label may read ‘papaya’ or ‘orange’ but most of the time, ‘fruit’ means ‘extract’-material taken from the skin or pulp that has had some of the phytochemicals removed from it” says Rebecca James Gadberry, an instructor of cosmetic sciences at the University of California, Los Angeles. Look at the ingredients, and you will see that words like “acid”, “extract”, “oil”, or “enzyme” follow the name of the fruit. The higher this component is on the list, the more potent the concentration.
