Psidium guajava leaf extract is derived from the leaves of the guava tree. Guava leaves have been traditionally used in herbal medicine and skincare due to their rich content of beneficial compounds, including antioxidants, flavonoids, tannins, and vitamins. Guava fruit extract when applied on skin, loosens the dead skin cells, and breaks the bonds between the dead skin cells and the base layer, thus helping to peel it from skin.

Guava leaf extract is abundant in antioxidants which help neutralize free radicals, protecting the skin from oxidative stress and premature aging. The extract also possesses anti-inflammatory properties, which can soothe irritation, redness, and inflammation, making it beneficial for sensitive or acne-prone skin. It contains tannins, which have astringent properties that help tighten pores, reduce excess oil production, and control acne breakouts. Additionally, the high levels of vitamins A, B, and potassium in guava leaf extract contribute to skin hydration.
