Appearance: Cream color to yellow colored powder. The color may vary from batch to batch.
Pineapple Powder is known to contain the fruit enzyme 'bromelain'. It is an effective exfoliant that sloughs off dead cells on the surface of the skin while imparting benefits. It can also act as an astringent to use in facial toners. Pineapple Powder is also a wonderful source of natural color and adds a sharp, crisp citrus-like scent that adds to its cleansing and invigorating properties.
Recommended Usage: The maximum quantity of powdered fruit extract should not exceed 0.5% of the total product, while in tincture form the maximum amount of fruit extract must not exceed 5%.
Note: The fruit extracts possess all the nutrients and beneficial properties of the fruit, but may or may not have the aroma of the actual fruit. Fruit extracts are meant for adding nourishing properties to the formulation and not for scenting the products.

Rating: Created a DIY conditioner with pineapple extract. My 4C hair was soft, moisturised and beautiful for days. A must have in my hair care regime. Thanks NDA!

Rating: This was amazing for my pina colada face masks.

Rating: I combined this extract with coconut milk powder and NDA's kaolin facial scrub. It was lovely and creamy when I added water and it smelled just like a pina colada.
I also added this extract - after hydrating it in a bit of distilled water - to a CP soap, along with liquid coconut milk and NDA's Pineapple FO (a favourite of mine) for a pina colada-themed Soap. It looks and smells delish but it's still curing so I can't comment on the final outcome yet!

Rating: Excellent product - easy to incorporate and smells delicious. I use it in face wash formulations and love the amazing scent you get without having to add any artificial fragrance :)
Rating: Not sure if it really has any benefits in a CP soaps, but does add to the pineapple scent. Did not accelerate trace

Rating: I used this in a cp soap with cocoa butter to aim at a pina colada theme. The soap smells great but the pineapple extract did get over powered by the cocoa butter scent. On its own you can smell pineapple though. I like using the extracts to the soap as some give the soap a bit of texture. I don't find they interfere with trace at all if you use the proper amount and you are still adding great benefits to your soap.

Rating: This product is the perfect addition to my moisturizing facewash! It contributes to exfoliation without the need for solid particles (beads, etc), all of which were gumming up the tube of my preferred face wash pump. This is great stuff!! And it doesn't hurt that pineapple is one of my favourite foods ;-) Yum!
Rating: These fruit extracts are FANTASTIC! I lvoe the scent- and it is almost the only way you can have products that smell like fruit using true botanicals instead of fragrance oils!
