Free radical scavenger, improve skin tone and elasticity, antiallergenic
Rooibos or Red Bush, has been used for thousands of years as an herbal tea by the Khoi and San people of the Cederberg mountains in South Africa. The plant grows nowhere else in the world but in that mountain range in the Cape Peninsula.
It contains powerful antioxidants, which mimic the enzyme Superoxide Dismutase, naturally present in our bodies, and act as free radical scavenger, slowing down the ageing process.
It also contains alpha hydroxy acid and zinc, which contribute to healthy, smooth and glowing skin.
Zinc and copper, which improve the vasodilatation of blood vessels, help to reduce puffiness under you eyes but also bringing more oxygen to the dermis, stimulating the production of collagene and elsatine by the fibroblasts.
Rooibos has been proven to be anti-allergenic and to treat skin conditions such as inflammation, rashes, acne, eczema and dermatitis.
Rooibos is one of our signature ingredients: it is in many of our products in the form of whole leaf and leaf extract, as well as a tea (in place of water) in all our water-based products.
Our rooibos is certified organic and fairtrade and sustainably hand-harvested by a community of San people in the Cederberg mountains of South Africa.
