Coveteur highlights the benefits of the banana tree for glowing skin and banana ingredients in brands like Kadalys.
"The banana tree has been nicknamed "the plant of a thousand uses"—and for good reason. With benefits ranging from healing to hydrating to brightening, the fruit can help a wide variety of concerns. For one, if your skin is experiencing free-radical damage and oxidative stress, incorporating products with bananas into your skin-care routine can help. "Bananas contain vitamins A and E, which are good for strengthening the immune system and serving as antioxidants to help prevent damage," says Dr. Jennifer Herrmann, a board-certified dermatologist at Moy Fincher Chipps Facial Plastics/Dermatology. "They're also a great source of alpha hydroxy acids that can be used for skin brightening." The banana tree has a unique lipid composition and contains precious molecules that help maintain the skin's radiance. Basically, dull skin won't stand a chance."
