South Korea’s national flower, the Hibiscus syriacus is certainly a plant to celebrate! Commonly referred to as the “botox plant,” the extracts from the hibiscus are used as a natural source of alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), specifically malic and citric acid, in skin care products. Hibiscus also delivers on antioxidants and mucilage!
Benefits: With its AHAs, it has the ability to unclog pores and treat oily skin. Beyond this, it prevents aging and restores plumpness by slowing down the enzymes with attack elastin. Finally, it prevents oxidative stress delivered by environmental factors like pollution and the sun.
Skin Types: If you have sensitive skin, we recommend a patch test! Acne prone and oily skin will love this ingredient!
