Syrupy and sensuous
The peach tree (prunus persica) is a fruit bearing tree belonging to the Rosaceae family, which has been cultivated in China and Persia since ancient times. The fresh juice of the peach has a softening and brightening effect on the skin.
The peach is a frupe fruit with a fleshy exterior surrounding a hard pit which stores the kernel. There are hundreds of peach varieties, with their fuzzy skin ranging from white and yellow to red. Smooth-skinned varities are called nectarines. Fresh juice is squeezed from the soft pulp of the fruit, producing a liquid which is high in water content, sweet and slightly sticky to touch.
We mix this exquisite juice into our products for its softening, brightening effect on the skin. As the fruit is rich in Vitamins A, E and K, which help to regenerate skin tissue, the juice brings out a healthy glow in the complexion. It also has a gently cleansing effect and removes dirt from the skin without feeling too astringent, due to the fruit's high water content. Peach juice has a sweet, fruity fragrance, which is delicate rather than overwhelming, and has an uplifting affect on the mind, whilst conditioning and nourishing the skin.
