Xanthones are a potent anti-oxidant. They are said to be more potent than Vitamin C and Vitamin E. They have anti-ageing properties. They aid in cell repair and fight free radicals that cause ageing.
They also have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties that help treat skin problems, and are therefore effective against acne and pimples, skin blemishes and oily skin.
Because of the presence of xanthone, ONO Mangosteen soap is potentially effective against acne and pimples. It may also aid in the removal of skin blemishes and may help manage oily skin. It can also potentially remove fine lines and wrinkles and can prevent the early development of other signs of ageing.
Note on Exfoliants. This soap is an exfoliant due to the presence of a few hard particles coming from the mangosteen peel. Exfoliants should not be rubbed on the skin daily, otherwise the skin will not have time to grow back. Overuse of exfoliants can potentially cause rashes.
Use. Because this soap is an exfoliant, it should be rubbed on the skin only 2-3 times a week. If it has to be used daily, do not rub directly on the skin. Lather using hands and and use hands to apply.
