South African skin care company, African Extracts has cottoned onto the anti-pollution trend with its new daily repair facial oil.
Growing levels of pollution – microscopic particles of heavy metals and toxic gases in the air – enter through skin’s pores, disrupting its natural ability to repair and regenerate. One solution is to restore and repair damage on a daily basis.
African Extracts Rooibos has a powerful defense mechanism to protect against the rigours of daily life – bio-active rooibos. This green extract of the rooibos plant 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.
The natural skin care advantage
African Extracts’ daily repair facial oil promises to protect skin against environmental damage and premature ageing. It is formulated with bio-active rooibos and contains a cocktail of precious plant extracts, including Jojoba seed oil which offers superb moisturising benefits, olive-oil derived squalane that helps maintain suppleness and radiance, and neem seed oil to support sensitive skin.
The daily repair facial oil is also formulated with German chamomile, mostly known for its anti-inflammatory and skin soothing properties; geranium oil to tighten and firm the skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; rose oil, which has antibacterial properties and lavender oil to protect against the effects of UV radiation.
African Extracts daily repair facial oil is sold nationwide in Dis-Chem, Clicks, selected pharmacies and major supermarkets, and online on Takelot and Zando. According to African Extracts, it is perfectly positioned between the anti-ageing and hyperpigmentation categories and offers consumers excellent value for money.
