Rosemary Oleoresin is an oil-soluble antioxidant. This means it protects vulnerable oils from oxidation, which causes the smell of rancid oil.
Rancidity happens when oils are exposed to heat, light, air, and time. It is a process that begins as soon as an oil is extracted and progresses until we notice an “off” smell. Use just like Vitamin E Acetate or Vitamin E Natural in products which need or benefit from antioxidants.
Our Rosemary Oleoresin is Rosemary Leaf Extract in a base of Coconut Oil Fractions.
It can also be used as an extract. Rosemary is a culinary herb with a lot to offer in skin care as well. It has natural anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and potent antiseptic properties. Rosemary can help fight acne.
Because it is full of antioxidants, Rosemary can help fight free radical damage to the skin. Antioxidants protect your skin cells from photo damage caused by sun exposure and environmental pollutants. It can also help with the appearance of aging.
Rosemary helps unblock clogged pores, tightens and tones the skin, and acts as a natural astringent.
Usage rates are 0.1 to 1% for antioxidant uses. For use as an herbal extract, try 2-4% usage rate.
