Rubus chamaemorus (cloudberry) fruit extract

Rubus chamaemorus (also known as cloudberry) is a plant grown primarily in Scandinavian countries whose golden-red berries are rich sources of anthocyanins, beta-carotene, and vitamin E. They also contain numerous antioxidants, trace minerals, and fatty acids which replenish and help to visibly repair compromised skin.

As with most pigmented berries, the antioxidant compounds in cloudberry have potent calming properties.
