Actinidia chinensis (Kiwi) Fruit Extract
The physiological effects of Kiwi seeds extract was researched and experimented.
Results revealed that Kiwi seeds extract is preventive against the development of acne
by preventing the generation of dihydrotestosterone and bacterium lipase from
Propionibacterium acnes. Research also confirmed its anti-wrinkle and anti-under eye
darkness properties. Nevertheless, Kiwi seeds oil is rich in α-linolenic acid, an
omega-3 essential fatty acids and natural amount of tocotrienols, a potent antioxidant.
