Cherries are anti-inflammatory and have a brightening and toning effect on the skin, thanks to the vitamins A, B, C and E they contain. The fruit is also packed with anthocyanin, a red to purple pigment with antioxidant properties, which helps maintain the skin firm and supple.
The cherry tree has grown in Europe and Asia since 600 BC. It is known for its fragrant, white blossoms, which are followed by small, bright red fruits: sour or sweet cherries. They are being harvested by vigorously shaking the trees.
Cherry infusion is made at Lush manufacturing sites, by adding dried sour cherries to boiled water. Cherries extracts in glycerine or jojoba oil can also be found in our products, as well as the dried fruit itself, or candied with sugar to give them a glossy, smooth finish.
