African Extracts Rooibos skin care launches new anti-ageing range

When it comes to preventing skin ageing, the power of antioxidants has a large role to play – and what better source than Rooibos extract from the Cederberg?

South African skin-care brand African Extracts Rooibos has launched an advanced anti-ageing range of seven products, called AdvantAGE.

The key ingredient is unfermented Rooibos extract, sourced from the Cederberg area, packed with the natural power of antioxidants which help prevent the destructive effects of free radicals within the skin's tissues.

The Rooibos extract is teamed with other plant extracts in anti-ageing complexes, proven to protect the skin from environmental pollutants. These include ginseng, apple, peach, wheat and barley, lady's thistle, sea fennel, horse chestnut, buckwheat seed, soy, lavender and green tea to boost moisture, tighten, firm, reduce puffiness and strengthen cell structures.

The products also include antioxidant vitamins A, C and E, hyaluronic acid, ceramides, allantoin and light deflectors, and the day cream and hand and nail cream have an SPF 15.

The African Extracts Rooibos ranges – Purifying, Classic and now AdvantAGE – are performing exceptionally well, which underscores the growing acceptance of Rooibos extract as a trusted, effective natural skin-care ingredient. The products are not tested on animals, are endorsed by Beauty Without Cruelty and are paraben free. They are widely available in Dis-Chem, Clicks, major supermarkets and pharmacies.
