I can understand that to some degree, as banana is full-off nutrients, also the banana peel as well.
Scroll through Instagram, take a trip to your local Sephora, or walk up and down a drugstore beauty aisle, and count how many banana beauty products you see—yes, you heard us right, banana beauty products.We’re guessing you’ll see at least one or two within the first five minutes because recently, this ingredient has been popping up across all categories, brands, and price points, which leads us to ask some questions. The first of which is why? Why is banana so in right now? Is it a so-called superfood? Has it beaten out kale, blueberry, and avocado as 2020’s buzziest beauty ingredient? And one more thing. Why are all these food ingredients trending in skincare the first place? Yeah, as we said before, we have questions.
Why is banana so in right now?
Luckily, we know a few experts who helped shed some light on all this banana buzz. Keep reading to learn all about banana beauty products, including why they’re here, why they’re beneficial to the skin, and why they won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.
First, let’s explore this trend of using food as skincare. While it’s experienced a resurgence in recent years, it’s not exactly anything new. After all, edible plants have been used as skincare for millennia, long before modern skincare was a thing. These days, food ingredients are called out and marketed because people are becoming increasingly concerned with the cleanliness of beauty products and are therefore gravitating towards natural food ingredients versus synthetic chemicals.
Take it from Suzanne LeRoux, green beauty expert and founder of One Love Organics. “I think, as more people look at what they are putting in their bodies and on their bodies, they are making a connection that healthy fruits and vegetables might also be good when applied to their skin as well,” she says.
After searching the benefits, I discovered the soothing benefits of bananas that inspired our team, to bring it to our clients. Our Private Label Skincare Florida formulas offer the benefits of banana, along with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits from other ingredients like chia seed, and turmeric, along with super peptides, and plant stem cells.
The skin benefits of banana go beyond simple skin-soothing and hydrating; it’s also healing, which is why it doubles as an effective hair care ingredient. “Banana is naturally high in magnesium and potassium,” points out Chang, a well-known formulator. What’s more, each part of the banana offers different skin benefits. Studies show that banana peels are anti-microbial, and the actual banana has nourishing, moisturizing, and even exfoliating properties.
Banana pulp extract is a gentle source of fruit alpha hydroxy acids to gently refine the skin. You can also use banana fruit extract, which is hydrating, and the banana peel oil, which is moisturizing and a good source of many other natural hydrating properties.
