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 most other products.

In the case of Frankincense, the distilled essential oils contain only a small per cent of the active compounds in the material, the more volatile and aromatic elements. 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 called Boswellic acids, 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 Fresh Frankincense Frereana oleoresin, also known as "Elemi Frankincense". 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 until 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.

Please note that though this creme has a wonderful effect on the skin of 99% of customers, there is no herb that is "One size fits all" and has exactly the same effect on everyone. It is possible that one's body/skin does not have an affinity to whole Frankincense resin or one of the other ingredients in this product. Always test the effects of the creme on a small patch of skin and wait a few hours to see what your skin has to say about it.

Made with whole Frankincense Frereana, Jojoba and Argan oils, distilled water, emulsifying wax, (made from palm oil), Vitamin E., and contains "Liquid Germal Plus" a broad spectrum, non Paraben preservative.

I no longer produce a preservative-free version. After educating myself on the dangers of harmful and unseen bacteria, fungi and molds which will proliferate within days, even when refrigerated, I could not take the risk. If you would like to make your own preservative-free Frankincense creme, please see the links below.

Customers in the USA, please note that due to FDA regulations I have had to change the wording on the labels. Instead of saying "Frankincense Rejuvenative Creme", the labels read "Frankincense Creme Complete". It is the same product. The new wording reflects the fact that it is made with the whole and complete Frankincense resin and not just the essential oils.

It is packaged in "Airless pumps" which do not allow air to enter the bottle and help keep the creme sterile. These dispensers operate without a tube and need to be primed before they will produce any creme. To prime these pumps, press repeatedly and vigorously on the pump head until you feel the resistance of the creme rising up the head. If needed, turn the bottle upside down and press/pump it repeatedly till the creme starts flowing.
