Inheritance SkinCare first found the benefits of Rooibos (Red Bush) from drinking the tea while on an extended visit in South Africa. Then we heard about the extracts of this wonderful plant being used in skin care products. The result is gentle anti-oxident rich, soothing products that pamper and nourish your skin at very affordable prices.

ROOIBOS - A CANCER FIGHTING HERO?
South Africans have always known that Rooibos is good for you. This fine-needled plant grows only in the Cederberg area in the Western Cape and has been used for centuries by the early San and Khoi people as a healing medication for the skin. The temperature shift is massive - with the searing heat in the summer and freezing cold winters.
The secret to its skin-saving properties is the high antioxidant levels found in the plant, which help prevent abnormal behavior in cells that can lead to cancer. Not surprisingly, there's a great deal of research being conducted into the cancer-fighting benefits of Rooibos.
Research into Rooibos is being funded by Cansa, the Cancer Association of South Africa, into among other aspects, how Rooibos extract can help prevent and treat skin cancer. This research has been going on for 10 years and the latest results are exciting.
According to Cansa, Rooibos contains powerful antioxidants that fight free radicals that contribute to heart disease and cancer. It also supplements the recommended daily allowance of calcium, manganese, and especially fluoride, essential for the development of strong teeth and bones. Drinking Rooibos tea daily can help decrease cholesterol, protect the liver, soothe stomach cramps and colic in infants, enhance metabolism, support healthy skin and ease numerous skin diseases.
Drinking Rooibos is also shown to boost levels of glutathione, the body's own super antioxidant. Scientists advocate drinking six cups of Rooibos a day and there's every reason to think that using skin-care products with Rooibos extract will add a valuable layer of protection in the fight against skin cancer.
Say NO To Microbeads and Save Our Seas
WHAT ARE MICROBEADS?
Mainly used in facial and body scrubs and exfoliators, as well as toothpaste, these tiny particles of plastic have been added to thousands of products around the world. Hardly visible to the naked eye, they flow straight from the bathroom drain into the sewer system. Wastewater treatment plants are not designed to filter out microbeads and that’s why they end up contributing to the plastic soup swirling around the world’s oceans. Sea creatures absorb or eat microbeads, which are then passed along the marine food chain. Microbeads are not biodegradable and once they enter the marine environment, they are impossible to remove. This means we may also be eating them when we eat seafood.
More and more of these microbeads are being removed from products and replaced by naturally biodegradable alternatives. But there are many more products made by major skin-care companies that still contain them. Look out for the words polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), and nylon on ingredient lists.
The campaign scored a major victory in December 2015 when President Barack Obama signed a bill against microbeads, the Microbead-Free Waters Act, which comes into effect from July 2017, and Canada has also legally prohibited their use.
There is no official South African list, but you can visit the campaign website www.beatthemicrobead.org to see which products contain microbeads. Many of them are sold in South Africa. One thing is certain, African Extracts Rooibos scrubs and exfoliators use only Rooibos leaves and apricot seed kernels to give your skin that soft, smooth polished feel.
African Extracts Rooibos supports the international campaign against the use of plastic microbeads in skin and body-care products.
Our logo is the African Baobab Tree
One of the most magnificent trees on the planet, the Baobab produces oil from its seeds that is non-irritating and non-allergenic, excellent for soothing and restoring moisture to the skin. It contains vitamins A and F (rejuvenation and cell renewal) and vitamin E (antioxidant and anti-aging effects.) Often used for treating eczema and psoriasis.
The tree grows 40 to 75 feet tall and has a trunk 30 to 60 feet in diameter. Scientists have dated the age of some Baobabs as being more than 2,000 years old. Home to many animal species. The fruit has a velvety shell and is about the size of a coconut. It has an acidic, tart flavor, described as somewhere between grapefruit, pear, and vanilla. The dried fruit powder contains about 12% water and various nutrients, including carbohydrates, dietary fiber, vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, B vitamins, potassium, and iron. It contains 50% more calcium than spinach, is high in antioxidants, and has three times the vitamin C of an orange. You will find extracts from the Baobab fruit in most of our Purifying line of products.
