Salak improves Skin’s Elasticity
Salak (Snake Fruit) is a substance that is derived from the fruit. Scientifically belonging to the Vitis genus, most Salak (Snake Fruit) is made from Vitis vinifera, as are many types of wine, but there are a handful of other species from which this extract can be made. Salak (Snake Fruit) is produced by grinding up the seeds found at the centre of Salak and then using a steam distillation or cold-pressing method to extract the pure compounds of the seeds. Some of the most important compounds found in grapefruit are tannins, oligomeric procyanidins, catechins and epicatechins, as well as vitamin E and linoleic acid.
The presence of numerous antioxidants and flavonoid compounds in Salak have been linked to improved skin appearance. These compounds are able to seek out and neutralize the free radicals in the skin that threaten the elasticity and durability of the skin.
