Unveiling Our Citrus Arsenal:

At Bonésse, we've harnessed the power of citrus fruits to create a range of skincare products that will leave your skin feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and absolutely radiant. Citruses, including lemons, oranges, and grapefruits, are renowned for their high vitamin C content. This essential nutrient plays a vital role in collagen synthesis, aiding in the skin's natural regeneration process and promoting elasticity. Moreover, vitamin C boasts potent antioxidant properties, helping to combat free radical damage caused by environmental stressors like pollution and UV radiation.

In addition to vitamin C, citruses are rich in alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) such as citric acid. AHAs are natural exfoliants that gently slough off dead skin cells, revealing a smoother, brighter complexion underneath. This exfoliating action can help diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone, resulting in a more youthful appearance. We have incorporated citruses in all our products, due to its efficacy and safety for the skin. Let's take a closer look at some of our star ingredients:

Face Shield Serum: Ever heard of bitter orange extract? It is also known as sour orange or Seville orange Well, Our Face Shield serum is formulated with the potent extract of bitter oranges, a citrus variety known for its revitalizing properties. Bitter orange extract is rich in bioflavonoids and antioxidants, making it a powerhouse ingredient for protecting the skin against environmental aggressors. This extract helps to strengthen the skin's natural barrier, enhancing its resilience and defending against external stressors. The bitter orange plant's leaves contain ample amounts of vitamin C, functioning as antioxidants. Additionally, its peel possesses abundant flavonoids, potent antioxidants with significant medicinal benefits. Its primary advantage lies in detoxifying the skin, addressing concerns such as pores, blackheads, blemishes, and irritations.


Micellar Balancing Cleanser: When life gives you lemons, make skincare magic! Our Micellar Balancing Cleanser features AHAs from lemon, offering gentle peeling and skin renewal with every cleanse. It's the perfect way to bid farewell to dead skin cells and hello to a fresh-faced glow. Citric acid plays a crucial role as an intermediary compound within the Krebs cycle, vital for the generation of ATP, a key energy molecule that supports healthy skin by promoting the synthesis of fibrous proteins. Taking place within the mitochondria of cells, the Krebs cycle, also referred to as the Citric Acid cycle, is responsible for metabolizing sugar, breaking it down into carbon dioxide, water, and energy. In skin biology, citric acid serves as a valuable energy source for cells, thereby aiding in chemical exfoliation of the outer epidermal layer. With every day use of our cleanser, your skin is exfoliated without disrupting the skin barrier, your cells are renewed which leads to smoother and brighter skin. And most importantly, it is absolutely safe one from the AHAs family.
