A comparative study between the antioxidant properties of peel and juice of some citrus fruit including Grapefruit have found that peels revealed the highest contents in phenolics, flavonoids, ascorbic acid, carotenoids and reducing sugars, which certainly contribute to the highest antioxidant potential found in these fractions.
Study published in African Journal of Biotechnology suggests that the components of Pomelo have high potential for use as ingredients in products that prevent skin pigmentation, because of its ability to inhibited tyrosinase up to 90.8%
