Sugar cane (saccharum officinarum) is a tall, tropical grass plant known for its high sugar content in its stalks that’s processed to produce various sugar-derived products. Sugar cane extract is used in skincare products like scrubs, peels, masks and serums because it contains natural AHA like glycolic acid that help exfoliate skin and increase cell turnover.


Saccharum Officinarum Extract


Sugar cane is primarily grown in tropical and subtropical regions like the Caribbean, Brazil, India and Southeast Asia.


Sugar cane extract is generally well-tolerated on skin, but sunscreen is needed during use because of increased sensitivity to the sun.


Exfoliates Skin

AHA, like glycolic acid found in sugar cane extract, remove dead skin cells, unclog pores and improve skin texture.

Improves Skin Tone

Regular use of sugar cane-derived AHA can reduce hyperpigmentation and fade dark spots for a brighter, more even complexion.

Create Anti-Aging Benefits

AHA in sugar cane extract can stimulate collagen production and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to promote firmer, more youthful skin.

Hydrates Skin

Sugar cane extract can increase skin's moisture retention for smoother, more plump skin.

Controls Acne 

Sugar cane extract exfoliates skin and unclogs pores, which can reduce acne breakouts and control oil production.

Improves Product Absorption 

Sugar cane extract can improve the absorption of other skincare products for deeper, more effective penetration.
