Arctic Lingonberry - The Nordic Wonder Ingredient
Are you suffering from dull, dry or ageing skin? Or want to achieve more even skin tone? The cosmetics industry is currently buzzing over retinol, bakuchiol and CBD - and for a reason, but we'd like to draw your attention to something else - to the Nordic wonder ingredient, arctic lingonberry.
What is Arctic Lingonberry?
Lingonberries are known to contain high quantities of fruit acids that when used on the skin, will help tremendously with cell turnover and skin regeneration. Talk about nature's own anti-ageing agent! With the faster skin cell turn over, your skin will look less dull and appear brighter and glowing. The high antioxidants quotient in Arctic lingonberries protects the skin from external factors that contribute to ageing, pollution, toxins, and impurities.
On top of the acids, lingonberries contain vitamin C, vitamin A (as beta carotene), B vitamins 1, 2 and 3, and potassium, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus. They are also extremely rich in Omegas 3, 6 and 9 and Tocotrienols. Omegas are good for anti-ageing, and moisturising action and Tocotrienols are powerful antioxidants. They are also known to be excellent free radical scavengers and facilitate cell growth.
What makes lingonberry even more fantastic? They are also extremely healthy berry to add to your diet, and as studies show, eating lingonberries increases skin hydration, improves the skin's elasticity, just to name a few. Lingonberry is considered a staple dish in the Nordic countries and lots of people enjoy picking their own lingonberries straight from the forests and freeze it to be enjoyed later in the wintertime.
