photooxidative damage, and warrant further study. With the extensive marketing
touting the benefits of apple derivatives to consumers, this systematic review extensively
searched and condensed the effects of apple derivatives to inform medical professionals
and the public of the current evidence for its use in cosmetic or pharmaceutical science.
Further research into the compounds in these derivatives can elucidate mechanisms of
use found in apples, a cheap and commonly used fruit that has been used for skincare
for centuries.
