LIME PEARL™ is an extract from Caviar lime (Microcitrus Australasica), which is a small tree endemic to the sub-tropical rainforests of Northeasthern New South Wales and Southeast Queensland of Australia. It produces magnificent green to deep purple-black cylindrical-shaped fruits, also known as finger lime. Elongated, they are about 30-120 mm large and 10-15 mm wide and contain beautiful small caviar size capsules. 

As most citrus species, caviar lime contains various fruit acids such as citric acid. AHAs (a-hydroxy acids) or fruit acids are known to be active exfoliators due to their low pH and are widely used in chemical peels. It also contains vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, etc. that gently improves skin exfoliation with an innovative process by stimulating TRPV3 (Transcient Receptor Potential Vanilloid-3) synthesis, resulting in a smoother, fresher, brighter and even skin complexion from its effective and fast acting desquamation action.
