Bell Develops Exotic Fruit Scents for Personal Care

April 11, 2007

Bell Flavors & Fragrances has incorporated the stimulating scent of exotic fruits into personal care products. Prototypes of body washes and lotions have been created that feature the aromas of the acai berry, lulo, goji berry and mangosteen.

Native to South America, the acai berry is deep purple in color. The superfruit contains Omega 6 and 9 fatty acids, fiber, calcium, and vitamins; and is said to have twice the level of antioxidants present in blueberries and pomegranates.

The lulo is also native to South America and debuted in the U.S. when it was served as a beverage at the 1939 New York World’s Fair. The fruit has the appearance of a small orange, but when cut open has a green flesh.

The goji berry is a sweet, red fruit native to Asia that has been used as a medicinal food for thousands of years. The berry is said to strengthen the immune system, provide antioxidant and anti-aging effects, protect the liver, support eye health and improve vision, as well as build strong blood.

The mangosteen tree grows in tropical areas and has been used in folk medicine. The fruit is the size of a small apple, purple in color with a hard rind. More info: www.bellff.com or 800-323-4387.
