Capsicum annuum extract is derived from the fruit of the Capsicum annuum plant, which is commonly known as chili pepper or bell pepper. This plant belongs to the nightshade family (Solanaceae) and is cultivated worldwide for its fruit. Capsicum annuum extract is often used in skincare and cosmetic products for its potential benefits, including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and skin-stimulating properties.

Capsicum annuum extract, rich in antioxidants like vitamin C and carotenoids, protects skin from aging and environmental stressors. Its anti-inflammatory properties soothe irritated skin and enhance circulation. Capsaicin inhibits melanin production, brightening skin tone, while stimulating collagen production reduces fine lines. Its main components include capsaicinoids, vitamins C and E, carotenoids, flavonoids, essential minerals, and essential oils, maximizing skincare efficacy.
