Pineapple Enzyme or Bromelain is a mixture of enzymes found naturally in the juice and stems of pineapples (Ananas comosus), a tropical fruit-bearing plant indigenous to South American countries as well as the Hawaiian Islands.
Adding a fruit enzyme exfoliating mask (1-3 times weekly, depending on skin type) into your weekly skin care routine can show immediate and long-term benefits. Exfoliation does not have to mean red irritated skin to get results. Great for all skin types, with exception of very sensitive skin. Pineapple contains the active enzyme, bromelain, which helps break down and dissolve dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. Bromelain is used in skin care treatments as an alpha hydroxy acid and is very effective in gently removing the dead skin cells on the surface of the skin by chemical exfoliation. The result of continuous treatment of fruit enzymes include:
- More even skin tone
- Its a potent skin whitener

Enzymatic activity in this product destroys the keratin of dead cells and the debris, allowing the skin to breathe and feel more alive, vibrant and youthful. When you remove dead skin tissue during exfoliation, you make your pores appear smaller because you remove the keratinized skin around the edges of your pores and make them less visible. Exfoliation also unveils the moisture underneath the skin.
Once you have exfoliated the skin, you will notice a visual difference in the tone and smoothness of the skin. The follicles are clearer and the skin is softened and hydrated, allowing for a deeper penetration of serums and moisturizers.
For those who experience acne, Bromelain will will unclog the pores and reduce inflammation of accumulated buildup of skin cells on the surface of the skin.
