Here's an interesting article. Apparently strawberry skin extract may protect skin from UV radiation. Maybe a sunscreen can be developed from this? Though I wonder, can you simply eat them or do you have jump in and roll around in a tub of them? The second option would be far more fun *inner kid in me emerging* XD

Hmm that's very interesting. So can you buy strawberry extract from a store (kind of like almond extract) and just rub it all over? I wonder what level of spf it's the equivalent to?

Thank you Kiliki for my beautiful siggy!

Very interesting! Avon used to do a face mask using strawberry skin, I wonder why they've never thought of using it in suncare products?

I know that a sunscreen pill is being developed. I'm not exactly comfortable taking that but if strawberries simply need to be ingested I wouldn't mind taking a super concentrated strawberry pill!
