Strawberry Extract

While strawberry season often only lasts through summer, you can still reap the benefits of this phenomenal fruit year-round—as a powerful skincare ingredient! Strawberries are not only healthy and delicious to eat, but also work to maintain a healthy-looking, radiant complexion when used topically in skincare. Wondering how this little red berry can have a big impact on your skin’s health and appearance? Read on to discover how strawberry extract benefits the skin and how to incorporate it into your skincare routine.

What is strawberry extract?

Fragaria Vesca Fruit Extract—also referred to as strawberry extract—is a concentrated form of the ingredient found in wild strawberries. These miniature scarlet-colored strawberries grow wild throughout the Northern Hemisphere, and are known for their toning and astringent properties. Hand-picked at the peak of ripeness, the berries then undergo an extraction process to capture the benefits of the natural ingredient for effective use in skincare.

What skin type is strawberry extract best for?

Strawberry extract is suitable for all skin types—including sensitive skin!

What are the benefits of strawberry extract?

With potent antioxidant compounds, strawberry extract improves hydration and elasticity when applied to skin. Strawberry extract is also rich in polyphenols, which protect the skin from environmental stressors. Plus, strawberry extract is known to contain vitamin C, an coveted skincare ingredient that helps to maintain a healthy-looking and glowing complexion.

Skincare products with strawberry extract

Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash

This daily dual-action face scrub gently cleanses and exfoliates—without stripping the skin of essential moisture. White sugar crystals micro-polish to smooth and soften the skin, while real strawberries help maintain a healthy-looking complexion for balanced, brighter-looking skin. To use, gently massage onto the skin with warm water until the sugar dissolves, then rinse. We recommend cleansing the skin beforehand with Soy Face Cleanser to remove excess oil and impurities to leave skin feeling purified, polished, and refreshed.

Sugar Face Polish Exfoliator

Deliver a double dose of radiance to your skin with this smooth exfoliating face mask. Suitable for all skin types, this face exfoliator contains nourishing brown sugar and vitamin C-packed hydrating strawberry seed oils to reveal a brighter, smoother, more refined complexion. To use, gently massage on cleansed, damp skin, avoiding the eye area. Leave on for 5-10 minutes and rinse with warm water. Be sure to follow this mask with your favorite daily moisturizer to lock in hydration—we love to use Lotus Youth Preserve Moisturizer with hyaluronic acid to enhance suppleness and Super Lotus to boost radiance and deliver antioxidant protection. It’s the perfect complementary product to round out your skincare routine!
