Rooibos, or “red bush” comes from South Africa. The leaves of this herb can be used to make a rich, red tea that is caffeine free and full of anti-oxidants. Consumed largely in South Africa for many years, it is now used all over the world, where it is fast becoming known for its amazing anti-oxidant properties. We are excited about using it in our newest facial creme!
Rooibos possesses a large amount of minerals such as iron, copper, calcium, potassium and magnesium, and also has polyphenols and alpha hydroxy acid. What does all this mean for skin? Well, we will tell you!!
Some of the rare anti-oxidants in rooibos have amazing anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and even anti-bacterial qualities. This is great for people who have common skin problems, such as eczema, some types of acne, and other problem skin. Some of these anti-oxidants are hard to find in other herbs, so using rooibos in our facial creme makes it unlike most you can find anywhere else.
Our new facial creme is an exfoliate. It helps scrub away the dead skin cells so that new cells can be created. Rooibos helps remove the dead skin cells, and then aids in promoting the production of healthy skin cells This creme leaves your skin feeling and looking clearer and healthier – because it actually is.
But that is not all there is to love about this amazing herb. We know it fights common skin irritations, acne, and even bacterial infections; yet there is still another quality of this fantastic plant – ANTI-AGING!! The great and powerful rooibos helps combat and neutralize free radicals, which are a major culprit in causing the fine lines and wrinkles we all dread. With regular use, it can even reduce the appearance of those wrinkles!
We are so excited about using rooibos in our products, and we hope you will give it a try. You will be so glad you did!
