Guava Extract

Psidium Guajava Fruit Extract

The roots, leaves and bark of the guava are used in traditional medicine or folk medicine in several South American cultures. The fruit is a popular food and its vitamin C content is higher than in most other citrus fruits such as orange or lemon.

Both the fruit and the guava leaf have multiple beneficial properties for the body in general and especially for the skin.

The high content of bioactive antioxidants, vitamins C and A and the group of flavonoids, belonging to the phytochemicals, present in guava extract, are highly beneficial for the skin. They protect it from damage caused by external agents such as free radicals and counteract premature aging.

Guava extract has restorative properties, improves the appearance of the skin and is ideal for those who have dermatological problems.

The guava extract used by Anakena is certified organic by ECOCERT.

It is found in the following products: exfoliating shower gel, facial cream, body butter, hand cream, mild soap, shampoo and nourishing balm.
