Pineapple (Ananas comosus ) + Why We Use It - C & Co.®

While this fruit is ultra amazing when mixed with rum, we use pineapple in the formulation of our Hepburn Facial Treatment for a variety of reasons.

Nutrient-wise, it is a naturally rich in vitamins C, B-6 and A, along with many minerals including magnesium, iron and calcium. It also contains an enzyme called bromelain which helps to break down proteins when consumed.

Topically, this ingredient reduces congestion by breaking the bond between excess dead skin cells to encourage a healthy cellular turnover and by providing nutrients for balanced cellular regeneration. It is incredibly healing and reduces inflammation both topically and internally.

In the raw, pineapple has a wide pH range, from 3.3 to 5.2 according to the FDA, and should be used cautiously on skin when used as a plant-based chemical exfoliant.
