The use of plums can be traced back to the Neolithic age, as it is thought to be among the first fruits cultivated by humans - along with olives, grapes, and figs. Little did these early humans know that this small, juicy fruit is packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. When topically applied plums assert their antioxidant power by preventing damage caused by free radicals- promoting a radiant, wrinkle-free aesthetic. As an excellent source of B vitamins, plums combine UV protection, decreased oil formation, and acne prevention into skin care formulations. Furthermore, plum's vitamin C (ascorbic acid) content rounds out this antioxidant powerhouse by fighting age and sun spots.
