SkinMedica Aesthetics’ TNS Essential Serum is an anti-aging formulation that includes blackberry leaf extract for its ability to inhibit MMPs.

Naturopathica’s Pear Fig Polishing Enzyme Peel is a pore-refining treatment that includes blackberry leaf.

And Éminence Organic Skin Care’s Blackberry Pore Refining Serum acts as a gentle astringent to refine pores.

The real blackberry

In a world where the word “blackberry” is as commonly thought of as a hand-held mobile device as it is a luscious fruit, it may be time to remind clients about the real meaning of the word.

Consider re-introducing the sweet-yet-tangy berry into your spa treatment and cuisine menu offerings, tempting both the skin and tongue and making your clients forget about that other type of blackberry for awhile.
