At Jurlique, we’ve been using powerful botanical extracts in our skin care products since 1985, choosing them for their natural, skin benefitting properties. One such ingredient is Prunus persica, or Peach Leaf extract; an ingredient that may not be headline-grabbing like many others in skin care, but one that is important for helping to protect the skin from environmental aggressors, as well as improving the skin’s vitality and radiance of the skin. Here are four benefits of Peach Leaf extract and how you can add it to your skin care ritual.
What is Peach Leaf extract?
Peach Leaf extract is often listed or known as Prunus persica, which is the Latin name for ‘peach’. For years, extracts taken from the leaf of peach plants have been used for medicinal uses such as relief from morning sickness during pregnancy, treatment of mild coughs and reduction of premenstrual symptoms. At Jurlique, we use it for its skin care properties.
