The Advanced Phytoscience System
Friday, 12 December 2014 | Admin
Our Advanced Phytoscience System, or APS, forms the backbone to every product in the BRYT range. But what exactly is the APS and how can it benefit your skin?
The APS formulation includes rich ‘super antioxidants’ extracted from organic Australian wild plums Kakadu, Burdekin and Illawarra.
Along with helping to protect against free radicals and environmental factors that can cause premature ageing, these power-packed fruits have numerous additional benefits that work to improve, protect, detoxify and exfoliate youthful, problematic and blemished skin. They are also rich in vitamins, minerals and amino acids, fruit acids, antioxidants and phytosterols.
Traditionally eaten by the Aboriginals of northern Australia as a medicinal food, the purple-green Kakadu Plum grows in the UNESCO World Heritage listed, Kakadu National Park in northern Australia. One of the greatest superfruits ever discovered, it has remarkable antioxidant power five times greater than blueberries*, and is renowned for having the highest Vitamin C content of any fruit in the world.
Another superfruit with powerful antioxidant properties five times greater than blueberries*, the fleshy, ribbed Burdekin Plum is deep purple in colour and rich in fruit acids, making it extremely tart in taste. The Aboriginals reportedly buried it in the ground to soften and increase the palatability.
With powerful antioxidant properties three times greater than blueberries*, the Illawarra Plum is native to the rainforest areas of East coast Australia. Traditionally eaten by the Aboriginals as a nutritional energy source, the grape-like purple fruit has a sweet, juicy pulp and subtle plum flavour.
Also included in the APS is soothing and calming aloe vera in its purest form, and nature-mimicking allantoin, an active ingredient found naturally in comfrey roots that works to heal, soothe and moisturise.
