Ah, yes. Another *clean* beauty brand worth raving about. Isn’t that the best?
I’m here to tell you all about Frutose: an all-natural skincare line for those looking to experience a clean, healthy beauty made from fruits! These products are PACKED with vitamins, by enhancing your skin with nutrients, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids through fruit extraction.
Fruit extracts have multiple benefits for the skin. While oils contain essential fatty acids and can moisturize and prevent water evaporation, extracts contain a higher level of antioxidants, minerals, amino acids and other beneficial components.
Fruit waters can replace regular water in a variety of formulations. Fruit enzymes are very powerful ingredients that leave the skin soft and renewed. Surfactants (compounds that lower the surface tension between two liquids) derived from coconut are extremely gentle and the mildest kind on the market; they are effective, non-irritating, will not strip skin natural oils.
What I find cool is that Frutose products (meaning “Fructose” in the Portuguese language) are made by a couple of Brazilian scientists who decided to transform their love of science and fruits into an amazingly cute cosmetics brand. All of their products are developed and manufactured in a small, artisan, colorful fruit lab located in Toronto, Canada. How cool is that?
WHAT I TRIED:
Face Care Fruit Oils
First off, I had so much fun testing these adorable little oils out. Every night I’d play with one on different problem areas on my face (ie: dry lips, chapped nose, etc) and they do pack an oily punch. My favorite smelling one was definitely pomegranate. They all made my skin feel soft when I applied at night and woke up the next morning feeling suuuuper supple. A big “yaaas” from me.
Face Care Apple & Grape Fruit Water
These little guys I tested on a hot day by the pool. They were very refreshing! I wasn’t the biggest fan of the way the Apple Water smelled, but it still provided me with a little spritz of hydration I needed.

The benefits of fruit on your skin:
Sustainable sources: Frutose doesn’t need to damage nature to get these fruity ingredients, they wait for when nature is ready to produce it.
They’re edible: Different from some herbs and plants, most fruits are edible; which means if we can eat them, we can apply them on our skin without being worried.
Vitamins, vitamins and more vitamins: Fruits are an important source of vitamins, and cosmetics formulated with fruit extracts bring A LOT of benefits to the skin. And as we know, vitamins play an essential role in skin care treatments because of their antioxidant power that can drastically prevent the oxidation process and help to maintain healthy cells.
