The quest for glowing, healthy-looking skin is never-ending. Innovative and unusual ingredients are continually sought after to give skin a coveted youth boost, whether found in technologically advanced laboratories or plucked from nature’s bounty. Enter caviar lime, an elegant-sounding natural extract that adds zest to any skin care regimen.
IN THE LIMELIGHT
Caviar lime is not the typical lime gracing margaritas or mojitos. Au contraire, also known as finger lime, this small, slender citrus fruit (microcitrus australasica) with green, red, purple, or black peel is found in the tropical rainforests of Australia. The textured skin encases an interior filled with translucent, caviar-shaped pearls in shades of white, yellow, pink, green, or red. Caviar lime is often used in food because of the citrusy flavor and unique look of the caviar lime beads. However, this ingredient is increasingly popular due to its skin care benefits as a natural exfoliant, acne-fighting powerhouse, glow-getting brightener, and antioxidant-rich elixir. The bottom line is that caviar lime extract is one of the keys to a fresh, radiant complexion.
