Breadfruit for Beautiful Skin
A Unique Discovery
Altilis Beauty + Breadfruit
All Altilis Beauty® products are made with unique and powerful skin rejuvenating phytochemicals extracted from breadfruit flowers. We source breadfruit flowers directly from microfarmers in tropical islands where breadfruit grows in abundance.
Altilis Beauty® discovered the skin care benefits of breadfruit while engaged in research at the University of British Columbia.
The Powers of Breadfruit
Breadfruit is a tropical plant in which the flower is rich in phytochemicals. Its properties carry powerful antioxidants with soothing and protective elements which bring out healthy, glowing, radiant skin.
Breadfruit flower is a rich source of unique phytochemicals which have proven anti-cancer properties. These effective antioxidants scavenge free radicals which damage our skin.
Breadfruit contains a fatty acid called Azelaic acid, which has soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. It also reduces acne and rosacea and provides relief from mosquito bites.
Breadfruit replenishes the skin’s natural lipid barrier, resulting in a glowing complexion. Terpenes and flavonoids offer antioxidants and protective properties which protect the skin from UVB rays. It also contains an enzyme that promotes collagen and the elasticity of the skin.
We Care for Everybody
Breadfruit trees benefit families and communities with sustainable food security and conservation of traditional knowledge. Many families in the tropics have breadfruit trees and various uses for different parts of the tree.
Altilis Beauty® works with the local partners in the tropical islands to create the unique breadfruit flower ingredient for our products. Our partnership provides income and generates economic opportunities to families as we create a demand for the flower and encourage replanting of the trees to maintain the natural beauty of the environment.
