Dragon Fruit Extract
The fruit, called dragon fruit, is a berry up to 7-14 cm long and 5-9 cm thick, with a yellow or red epicarp and a white or red mucilaginous pulp. Each fruit contains numerous tiny black seeds. Its taste is delicate and intensely sweet. It is native in Central America and cultivated in tropical regions around the world. Dragon fruit extract is obtained from the fruit of Hylocereus undatus.
The antioxidant activity of dragon fruit is mainly due to its content of ascorbic acid (vitamin C). Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant agent with free radical scavenging activity, very useful to treat photoaging. This vitamin has photoprotective properties similar to those of vitamin E. Vitamin C neutralizes UVB-generated free radicals. Other experimental models involving human skin demonstrated similar effects for ascorbate, applied alone or in combination with vitamin E (Chiu A. & Kimball AB., 2003)
