Why do we use Rosemary in Basix Skin Defence Cream?

Rosemary Leaf Oil, scientifically referred to as Rosmarinus Officinalis, shares the same lineage as mint. This evergreen and wonderfully aromatic herb is often used in Mediterranean dishes. You likely have it in your spice rack or perhaps growing in your garden.
While it’s a lovely addition to meals, and a healthful one too, Rosemary Leaf Oil is incredibly beneficial for your skin, particularly if you suffer from eczema or psoriasis. There’s a reason you’ll often see it in cosmetics, including our own Basix Skin Defence Cream. Let us show you why.

ROSEMARY HAS A ROBUST LIST OF NATURAL FORTIFIERS

Taking a look at what Rosemary Essential Oil is composed of, you’ll find rosmarinic acid, betulinic acid, caffeic acid, ursolic acid, camphor, and carnosic acid. What these do is give it an antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. Since skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis cause skin inflammation, we think it’s a great way to naturally bring relief.

ROSEMARY IS HIGHLY ANTIOXIDANT

While it’s important to eat a diet rich with antioxidants, using them in your skincare routine is also essential. With Rosemary Essential Oil, it helps neutralize free radicals which are responsible for destroying your skin structure. This oil also has plenty of iron, vitamin B6, and calcium which helps boost collagen levels for better skin overall.

ROSEMARY BALANCES YOUR NATURAL OILS

A common mistake people with eczema and psoriasis make is to over-dry the skin. They think oils can cause more breakouts and a greasy appearance. Rosemary Essential Oil doesn’t do that though. It can refresh oily skin without leading to dryness or clogging pores. In fact, it cleans out pores from dirt and impurities for clearer and more beautiful skin.

ROSEMARY HELPS YOU LOOK YOUNGER

When skin becomes inflamed and red from your skin conditions, it doesn’t help you look younger. With Rosemary Essential Oil, circulation is improved in your skin which helps it look more youthful and keeps it clearer. It’s great for keeping eyes from puffing up too. Overall, skin will look tighter and firmer.

ROSEMARY REDUCES INFLAMMATION

With α-pinene, Rosemary Essential Oil has this powerful antioxidant that can quickly reduce unpleasant redness and irritation that’s associated with psoriasis and eczema. When it neutralizes these skin outbursts, you’re left with gorgeously glowing skin that feels comfortable.
Basix Skin Defence Cream includes Rosemary Essential Oil in it to help you get the relief your skin needs along with the recovery to restore and rebuild it. Try it to relieve dry, flaky skin symptoms and stop suffering!
