New Zealand is the home of the world’s finest Kiwifruit, an oval shaped fruit with a brown and fuzzy skin and a bright emerald green or golden flesh with tiny, black edible seeds.
They have a delicious taste (similar to that of a gooseberry, hence the original name of the fruit) and a fresh, full fragrance.
Not only are kiwifruit delicious to eat, they are naturally high in vitamins and minerals and antioxidants that are all beneficial for the health and enhancement of your skin.
The vitamins that are found in abundance in kiwifruit include Vitamin E and Vitamin C.
Benefits of Rotorua Mud
The Wild Ferns Kiwifruit skincare products use either concentrated kiwifruit extract, or kiwi seed oil that is extracted when the tiny black seeds are pressed in.
The Vitamin E, also called the “youth vitamin” helps to regenerate the skin’s cells and maintain tone and elasticity and combats bad circulation.
Vitamin C is excellent for cell renewal along with being particularly hydrating and rejuvenating.
The antioxidants found in kiwi fruit helps neutralise free radicals in the environment.
These free radicals are caused by everyday environmental factors such as air, sunlight and pollution.
They have been medically recognised as the cause of degenerative skin diseases such as wrinkles and skin discolouration, and can damage cells and harm the immune system.
It is believed that using products that are high in antioxidants can help prevent or limit these negative effects.
