Goji Berries

It’s time to learn about yet ANOTHER powerhouse ingredient that will make its Crunchi debut in a life changing moisturizer soon?

Next up…Goji Berries! These distinct red/orange berries have become mainstream for their many internal benefits, but I think the most exciting benefit from goji berries is its anti-aging potential!! Here are some of the reasons why scientists have found this fruit to be important for maintaining healthy, youthful skin:

▫️ Minerals.
Goji berries contain 11 of the 22 essential dietary trace minerals, including calcium, potassium, iron, zinc, and selenium. Though each has different action, they all can help firm, tighten and plump the appearance of your skin.

▪️Amino Acids.
Amino acids, at their essence can help smooth the look of your skin, and improve tone and color. They also help improve skin hydration. Best of all, they’re non-irritating.

▫️Vitamin C.
Goji berries contain a high amount of vitamin C, which is known to support firming and tightening and protect the skin from environmental stressors. It’s also been shown to help reduce the appearance of age spots.

▪️Carotenoids.
These are flavonoids like beta-carotene, zeaxanthin, lutein, lycopene, crytoxanthin, and xanthophyll. These protect and are known to help maintain a healthy glow in the skin.

▫️Polysaccharides.
These components have antioxidant properties, firm and tighten and increase hydration.

 

All of these incredibly powerful qualities allow the goji berry to be well loved for its ability to…
