What Is Cucumber Extract?
Cucumber Extract is made from the fruit of the Cucumber plant (Cucumis sativus), a fruit in the gourd family (a botanical berry). The fruits are cylindrical and elongated with a dark green hue and consist of nearly 95% water. Cucumbers are native to South Asia, but now they commonly grow throughout the world. Cucumbers are most commonly used as pickles and are a staple of Mediterranean cuisine, and they are typically consumed as vegetables throughout most of the world due to their more vegetable-like flavor.
