Peach extract works with the vitamins and nutrients already in the skin to slow the appearance of aging. This is done by encouraging skin cells to repair themselves and protect against further damage. In addition to the polyunsaturated fatty acids, an abundance of Vitamin C helps your skin defend itself against the adverse effects of free radicals and inflammation. The antioxidants that peach extract contains also helps with this job. Lutein and Zeaxanthin, the two active antioxidants in peach extract work hard to reduce inflammation that is caused by the hyperproliferation of skin cells, and would otherwise lead to blemishes, and / or redness.
