Again and again we are asked, why we use rosemary as an ingredient in our organic face care for sensitive combination skin with redness, couperose or rosacea. After all, it is generally advised for couperose or rosacea, not to use any ingredients such as rosemary, known to stimulate blood circulation... Why do we nevertheless recommend the allergen-free organic rosemary antioxidant for sensitive and problematic couperose skin?
What is the difference between rosemary essential oil (INCI: Rosmarinus Officinalis Oil with allergens to be declared: Limonene, Linalool) and our allergen-free organic rosemary antioxidant (INCI: Rosmarinus Officinalis Extract)?
Our organic rosemary antioxidant is free from allergens and other volatile components of the well-known essential rosemary oil. The essential oil, in contrast, with its allergenic fragrances, is produced by steam distillation from rosemary twigs. Essential rosemary oil promotes blood circulation and tends to irritate sensitive facial skin.
Our allergen-free rosemary antioxidant is produced with an innovative, gentle and solvent-free extraction method. This pure rosemary extract by CO2-extraction goes WITHOUT any allergens and WITHOUT circulation-promoting properties. The allergen-free rosemary antioxidant is characterized by an optimized skin compatibility for sensitive and problematic skin. It is recommended as well for reddened skin, couperose or rosacea as for blemished skin and acne.
The allergen-free rosemary antioxidant acts anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and counteracts environmentally damaged skin. Rosemary antioxidant has been shown to reduce skin redness and micro-inflammation caused by UV radiation. With its high content of carnosolic acid it promotes the skin’s detoxification – powerfully acting against premature skin aging and stimulating the tissue‘s collagen formation. In hair care, rosemary antioxidant promotes healthy hair growth.
