Antioxidant, Emollient, Plant Extract


Plant extract more commonly known as the satsuma. This medium-sized citrus fruit is native to Japan. Like all citrus extracts, it contains volatile fragrance chemicals that can be a source of skin aggravation. Of course, it has antioxidant ability as do most plants, but ideally you should be seeking antioxidants that provide benefits rather than a mix of benefits and risks.
