The kiwi fruit has a lot more about it than most of us probably know. Yes, it is a refreshing, tasty fruit used in desserts and salads but it is also packed with nutritional benefits such as minerals, vitamins and essential omega 3 oils. It is rich in Alfa Linoleic acid, vitamin E and contains more vitamin C than an orange and more potassium than a banana.
These are all essential for a healthy lifestyle and are also good for your skin. Omega 3 is an essential fatty acid and our bodies do not produce enough of it on their own so it is vital that we supplement it. Fatty acids help maintain and produce healthy cell membranes and also help prevent and cure many skin ailments. Omega 3 oil is produced from the pips of the kiwi fruit.
Vitamin C is a great anti-oxidant and helps hydrate and rejuvenate your skin. Vitamin E is very important in regenerating new skin cells. It helps to keep the skin supple, soft and healthy. It also assists in the circulation system by dispersing vital nutrients around the body. Both vitamin C and E are found in many anti-ageing products.
Kiwi fruit, therefore, can be seen as a very important addition to our five-a-day fruit and vegetable intake. Packed with essential goodness for our bodies and skin. As well as eating kiwi fruit, it can also be applied externally to our skin in the form of kiwi fruit oil which is a luxurious skincare product.
The oil is produced from the seeds and is used in New Zealand Wild Ferns Beauty Products. They also use other extracts from the kiwi fruit to produce some of the nicest and most natural skincare products around. These products are also free from parabens, mineral oils and lanolin.
