Wouldn’t it be amazing to put your face inside an age-defying bubble to protect it from the damaging effects of daily life? Exposure to bright African UV rays not only cause wrinkles over time, but also dark spots and uneven pigmentation. This is exacerbated by the effects of hormone and common medication.
Growing levels of pollution – microscopic particles of heavy metals and toxic gases in the air – enter through the pores and disrupt the skin’s natural ability to repair and regenerate.
One solution is to restore and repair damage on a daily basis. African Extracts Rooibos has a powerful protective defense mechanism against the rigours of daily life – Bio-Active Rooibos, a green extract of the rooibos plant that is exceptionally high in antioxidants. Harvested and processed at source in the Cederberg mountains, this narrow-leafed fynbos plant has adapted to the harsh climate – with soaring daytime temperatures – by producing high levels of antioxidants.
Renowned for its health benefits Rooibos research is now examining its ability to reduce and reverse the effects of sun damage on the skin – even its ability to prevent cancerous cells developing.
