Succo di Jackfruit (Artocarpus heterophyllus)
What's better than a massive fruit to get a massive nutrient boost?
Where do we get it?
Lush UK sources fresh jackfruits from Mexico and processes them into juice in-house. If the fresh stock supply ever runs out, we can use canned jackfruit in the meantime.
With seven manufacturing sites across the globe, this information may vary depending on where your Lush products were made.
What are the benefits of jackfruits for your skin?
- They’re full of vitamin C, a skin-brightening antioxidant.
- They contain a good amount of vitamin B, also making the skin radiant and soothed.
- As a natural source of protein, they help strengthen and improve the condition of the hair and skin.
Jackfruits are impressive fruits. They are giant (they can weigh up to 25kg) and don’t look, taste, or smell like anything we know - at least in the UK. The tree is believed to be native to the rain forests of India and the Malaysian Peninsula and can grow almost everywhere, even in challenging climate conditions.
By cutting the fruit in half, a complex system of bulbs, seeds, soft and rough flesh appears. All of these parts can be used for culinary purposes. Their high protein and vitamin content has given jackfruit the reputation of being a miraculous product that could help eradicate famine worldwide. They are not the only asset of this tree, as each element can help produce something interesting to humans, such as a medicinal infusion from the leaves or latex from its sap.
