What’s the difference between African Extracts Tissue Oil and other tissue oils? It’s in the ingredients. Many tissue oils have as their main ingredient liquid paraffin or mineral oil, a petroleum by-product, some with added plant oils and vitamins.
African Extracts Rooibos Tissue Oil is made of natural sweet almond and grape seed oil extracts, with high quantities of antioxidant-rich Bio-Active Rooibos extract, Vitamin E and geranium extract. No colourants or fragrance added.
And it’s the most versatile product you’ll every buy. Use it from head to toe – add a few drops to your conditioner to relieve dry scalp or massage into summer-dried skin and brittle nails right at the tips of your toes.
For dry skin, wrinkly elbows and knees, stretch marks, scars and much more, our Tissue Oil is more like a skin-care serum, full of nature’s powerhouse ingredients – all in a convenient pump spray for use all year round.
Avoid stretch marks
Prevention is better than cure when it comes to pregnancy and once you have stretch marks all you can do is hope that they become less visible with time. Pregnancy and periods of rapid weight gain or loss are prime times for developing stretch marks.
The bad news is that a tendency towards stretch marks runs in families – so if your mother and sisters have them, chances are you will too. The good news is that keep your skin supple and moist by the daily application of African Extracts Tissue Oil will go a long way to keeping your skin looking smooth and beautiful – even when you are expecting. Research* has proven the efficacy of African Extracts Rooibos Tissue Oil in improving stretch marks.
After three weeks, stretch marks looked more refined and lighter. After six weeks there was a significant improvement – skin was more supple and stretch marks less visible. Favourable results were also obtained using African Extracts Rooibos Tissue Oil to improve the appearance of scarring, dry and dehydrated skin damaged by the elements, sensitive skin, skin under stress due to weight gain or loss, dry, brittle and damaged nails and cuticles, and dull, lifeless hair and dry scalp. * Independent study conducted by Dr T Botha and Ms M Engelbrecht from the Department of Wellness Sciences at the Cape University of Technology in 2007.
