Spotlight On: Rosemary Leaf Extract

Rosemary Sprigs

Not to be confused with rosemary essential oil, rosemary leaf extract is a powerful antioxidant that also extends the shelf life of the products it is included in.

As an antioxidant, rosemary leaf extract helps to protect against free radical damage and the effects of environmental stresses on the skin. It also slows down the oxidation of oils, thereby keeping oils in skincare products from going rancid for a longer time and naturally keeping them on the shelf longer. It is especially helpful when combined with fragile oils like hemp, avocado and grapeseed.

Rosemary leaf extract also boasts anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and skin toning properties.

Its unique combination of properties makes rosemary leaf extract a wonderful addition to our lip balms and Don’t Be Cheeky Lip & Cheek Butter; all our salves and balms including our Hard Workin’ Hands Salve, Smooth as a Baby’s Bum Balm, Happy Mumma Nipple Butter, Barkin’ Good Paw Salve and Ouch! Balm Herbal Salve; our Happy Mumma Stretch Mark Oil and After Sunny Spray; and all our skincare cremes and cleansers.
