Ingredient Spotlight: Blue Butterfly Pea Extract
Our Hydrating Seafoam Cleanser is made from all natural ingredients that benefit your skin in all sorts of ways, from rice starch to orange peel extract! Today, we're going to talk about one of the ingredients you don't see often in skincare: the blue butterfly pea extract!
The blue butterfly pea extract is a bright blue powder made from the beautiful blue butterfly pea flower. The extract is rich with anti-oxidants, resulting in collagen growth and aiding to calm skin irritation and redness.
Aside from our cleanser, where else may have you seen the blue butterfly pea flower?
Maybe food and drinks? It's true! One interesting example is the Starbucks® Butterfly Pea Lemonade Cold Brew that was available in stores throughout southeast Asia a few years ago. Consumers loved this drink because of its color-changing properties- when reacting with lemonade, the butterfly pea flower extract is activated and changes color right in front of your eyes!
