Unlocking the age well secret of Frankincense:
We use the world’s first certified organic Boswellia sacra frankincense from Oman in our Frankincense Intense™ Lift collection. In the heart of Oman, the calming aroma of burning frankincense has been treasured for centuries. Sustainably sourced from the resin of the Boswellia sacra trees that grow wild in the Dhofar region of Oman, the precious resin is expertly harvested using traditional tools before being hand-sorted and distilled to extract the pure essential oil, leaving behind a by-product.
Neal’s Yard Remedies have looked into the properties of the by-product and joined forces with a University Research Centre in Italy who carried out a patented enzymatic process to exploit its full potential. The process transformed the by-product into an exclusive active ingredient –Frankincense Active Phyto Complex.
By using the by-product, they have made the whole process even more sustainable. Extensive studies on Frankincense Active Phyto Complex, which contains three boswellic acids and polyphenols, have proven collagen-protecting properties and a profound antioxidant effect*.
*Proven with in vitro study. **Based on consumer trial on more than 100 women after 6 weeks. *Based on consumer trial on more than 100 women after 4 weeks.
