With its high nutritional content and refreshing scent, the grapefruit is a skin-care secret we are happy to share.

What is its Origin?

The grapefruit is a fruit from the subtropical evergreen citrus tree, which was first cultivated in the West Indies as a hybrid fruit from a cross between a Pomelo and a sweet orange, and was named after grapes, as they grow in clusters very similar to grape formations. Known for its relatively large, sour to semi-sweet, somewhat bitter fruit, the interior flesh is segmented and varies in colour from pale yellow to dark pink.

Which part of the Grapefruit does Pevonia use in the skincare products?

Pevonia uses the Grapefruit Peel Oil & Fruit Extract which comes from the rind of the fruit.

Why is Grapefruit good for our skin?

Containing unique phytochemicals, known as bioflavonoids, the grapefruit promotes skin health, general health and is rich in vitamin C, which is necessary for collagen production in the skin. The high content of vitamin C will stimulate the collagen production, which will bring smoothness and elasticity to the skin. Grapefruit also contains potassium, which evens out and lightens age spots, providing a protective shield against UV rays.

How can Grapefruit help my skin?

Grapefruit naturally calms and soothes inflamed skin, as it contains anti-oxidant properties that counter dry, rashy skin that many people suffer from due to exposure to daily pollutants. Grapefruits are also high in Lycopene, which provides antioxidant protection against environmental damage.

The oil from the grapefruit is also very beneficial. Firstly it contains mood lifting properties and when added to massage oil can help ease muscle stiffness through lactic acid removal. Grapefruit oil is often used for cellulite treatments because it helps to break down superficial fats, improving and stimulating the lymphatic system. The oil also has antibacterial properties and can help cleanse the skin and aid in the treatment of several skin conditions, including acne. The grapefruit essential oil can even be applied to the hair, keeping it healthy and strong; and also help to promote hair growth.
