Callicarpa Japonica Fruit Extract



Callicarpa japonica, also known as Japanese beautyberry, is a deciduous shrub in the mint family that produces purple drupes. A drupe is a fleshy fruit with thin skin and a central stone containing the seed. Callicarpa japonica fruit extract contains many beneficial phytochemicals that possess antioxidant activity, such as flavonoids, phytosterols, sesquiterpenes, and triterpenes. When applied to the skin, these antioxidants scavenge free radicals, which helps to prevent oxidative damage that can lead to signs of aging.
