Making healthy food choices has never been so on trend. Juicing/green juice, cleansing/detox and superfoods have been in the spotlight for the last few years. Superfoods are nutrient-rich and considered to be especially beneficial for health and well-being with extra-large doses of vitamins and minerals that can help us ward off diseases. The cosmetic industry has endorsed the superfood concept. While fruits and vegetable have always had some presence in our creams and beauty products, today they have a starring role.
