Known for its soothing and calming scent, Rosemary is now a popular ingredient in skin care. Rich in nutrients and antioxidants, it can help a wide range of skin complaints from premature ageing to acne. In anti-aging products, it inhibits free radical damage from the environment and prevents cell degeneration, which helps to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. It has also proven effective in lightening age spots and pigmentation.
It is great for oily and blemish prone skins, thanks to powerful astringent properties which help it to effectively reduce oil. It is even gentle enough to be used on sensitive skins, acting as an anti-inflammatory and healing damaged skin.
