What is Bearberry?
Bearberry is a common name for the fruits of three types of dwarf shrubs native to the Arctic and Subarctic zones of North America, Europe, and Asia. The berries themselves are small, round, and red in colour and the berries as well as leaves of bearberry shrubs have been used in traditional medicine around the world for centuries. Applied topically as well as taken orally, the extracts of bearberries and their leaves have a host of benefits for your skin.
