Have you ever heard of the Australian Emu apple? Don't feel bad if you didn't, as this plant is often called Australia's best-kept secret!
Well, until now.
Emu Apple is a plant native to the southern coast of Australia and is also known as muntries or native cranberries. It's actually not your classic apple, but red-tinged green or purple berries that you'll find deep in the bush.
The Emu Apple skin benefits are incredible, and that's why the plant extract has become a revolutionary skincare ingredient in recent years.
And Australian Emu Apple serum has turned into a massive hit and a new cult favourite among beauty lovers of all ages.
So let's get a closer look and see what this superfood is and how Emu Apple for glowing skin works.
Emu Apple Skin Benefits
Based on scientific research, the Emu Apple berries are known to protect, soothe, and nourish the skin because of their high natural waxes and antioxidant content. It's fascinating that these berries have three times more antioxidants than blueberries!
Emu Apple is a natural superfood full of Vitamin C, and all these incredible properties are invaluable when it comes to protecting and nourishing your skin.
Emu Apple has been shown to have multiple skin benefits, including collagen support, hydration and absorption.
Natural beauty lovers will be thrilled to learn that this gorgeous fruit also has a high content of potent phytoactive compounds. Their synergistic capabilities are what make Emu Apple perfect for achieving glowing and radiant skin.
So, what are these compounds, and why our skin loves them?
Emu Apple Active Compounds
Australian Emu Apple has multiple potent active compounds that work synergistically and make your skin look healthier, plumper and, well, more beautiful!
Amino acids have anti-aging properties, increase skin barrier function and regulate skin collagen synthesis.
Gallic acid is an anti-inflammatory antioxidant responsible for glowing, radiant skin, and Emu Apple has loads of it! It's also robust against aging and aids wound healing.
Organic acids have an exfoliating and moisturising effect, are antimicrobial and great for people trying to combat acne.
Catechin and phenolics also have anti-aging properties, help prevent rosacea, heal wounds, protect the skin from sun exposure and help maintain skin flexibility.
Emu apple is also rich in anthocyanins, a potent antioxidant commonly found in plants with a red, purple, blue or black pigment. Anthocyanins protect the skin from free radical damage.
Emu Apple also has natural wax that retains and preserves moisture which is very beneficial for the skin. Well-hydrated skin resists aging and is naturally more protective against damaging UVB rays.
Vitamin C has a regenerative ability to slow down skin aging by improving the skin texture and reducing skin damage.
Flavonoids help facilitate all the other ingredients and protect the skin from aging by strengthening the capillaries and reducing puffiness and dark circles around the eyes.

Who should use emu apple skincare products?
You've probably already realised how potent and beneficial the skin Emu Apple is and are wondering if you should add it to your beauty regimen.
Question no more, because if you're looking to treat and prevent broken capillaries, wrinkles, fine lines, skin dullness and get that brightening effect, you should, without a doubt, try skincare products with this plant.
Skincare products with Emu Apple also protect the skin from free radicals, so they are a great addition to your routine and complement your SPF.
The products are also great for aging skin as Emu Apple phytoactive compounds enhance collagen production, which decreases with time as we celebrate each new birthday.
Benefits of face serums
One of the best ways to get all those active compounds to work for you is to add a serum to your daily routine.
Serums are a fantastic way to boost your beauty regimen and benefit from all the powerful ingredients.
Serums have a high concentration of active ingredients and are created to penetrate deeply into the skin. They're perfect for targeting specific issues like wrinkles, skin tone or pigmentation.
Even though they're very potent, you should use your serums together with a traditional moisturiser as the serum helps skin retain moisture, and the creams and lotions create a barrier and lock it all in.
Since the serum is lighter and has more active ingredients, you should always apply it after cleansing your skin before any other products.
When looking for the best serum, always read the labels and make sure the ingredients are suitable for your particular skin problem or issue you want to target.
