Apple Cider Vinegar in Your Beauty Routine

Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is one of nature’s most amazing ingrediants that offers easy natural Beauty benefits. ACV is rich in vitamins, enzymes, citric and malic acids, mineral salts and amino acids.  It offers antiviral, anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal protection, as well as acting as an anti-bacterial.

To ensure you get an ACV with all these amazing properties, you should look for a raw unheater ACV that states ‘with Mother’ on the jar.  The Mother is the friendly naturally ocurring bacteria in the ACV, that contains the enzymes.  Typically, you will find a Mother in your homemade ACV, or in organic versions such as Braggs ACV. Pasturised ACV has been heat treated, so all the essential friendly bacteria has been killed.
