Plinia cauliflora (jabuticaba) fruit extract

Jabuticaba is a dark berry native to Brazil and, like many berries, is a rich source of nearly a dozen polyphenolic antioxidants that can help visibly repair skin and shore up its natural defenses.

Analysis of the fruit portion of the jabuticaba plant has shown it to contain various carotenoids, minerals (such as copper, selenium, calcium, and manganese), and vitamin E. Vitamin C is also present, but not in an amount that’s considered meaningful for skin.
