During the month of August I will be in Ontario and able to ship preservative free Frankincense rejuvenative creme to North American clients with less worry around spoilage.
Famous as a cosmetic ingredient since time immemorial, the rejuvenating effects of Frankincense are well known. It is most commonly used to address wrinkles, signs of aging, mature skin, and believed to add elasticity to the skin. This product is made with the complete and whole oleoresin of Frankincense Frereana, not just the essential oils as in commercial products.

In the case of oleoresins, the distilled essential oils contain only a small percent of the active compounds in the material, the more volatile and aromatic elements. In oleoresins, many of the plant's therapeutic chemicals are lost after distilling the essential oils. For this reason I strive to use the whole oleoresin whenever possible.

I believe there is a synergy in a plant in its natural state. By using both the resin and the essential oil, we can experience greater benefits than using either portion on its own.

Though relatively little research has been done on Frankincense, there has been a lot of excitement recently with the discovery of groundbreaking compounds found only in the resin and not in the essential oils. Boswellic acids are anti-inflammatory and demonstrate cancer-killing activities. Incensole and Incensole acetate show promise in addressing anxiety ,depression and head trauma. These are only 2 of the many compounds found in the whole oleoresins of the Frankincense family.There is so much more to discover yet!

This product is made with rare, fresh Frankincense Frereana oleoresin, also known as "Elemi Frankincense" due to its pure resin/essential oil composition, and its lack of water-soluble gum. Locally it is called Maydi and "The King of Frankincense". The historical and traditional demand for Maydi in Arabia and Africa is so great, little of this precious material has been available in the west till recently.

This is a rich, lush creme. It goes on silky smooth with no greasy residue. It is absorbed quickly but leaves the skin feeling nourished, soft and supple. It is safe applied around the eyes and has a lovely frankincense fragrance. No extra fragrance is added.

Made with whole Frankincense Frereana, Jojoba and Argan oils, distilled water, emulsifying wax, (made from palm oil), Vitamin E., and contains 0.02% "Liquid Germal Plus" a broad spectrum preservative. The preservative-free version is available only for the month of August at this point. Though in an airless pump, it needs to be refrigerated immediately on delivery and kept refrigerated during use.
