The first thing that comes to mind when I think of frankincense is church. The wispy smoke which fills the cathedral air with an inviting scent — usually resonated with some type of spiritual divinity — can now be found in your skincare. Who knew that the age-old ingredient has some amazing anti-aging abilities to boot!
The organic British beauty and health line Neal’s Yard Remedies (NYR) Organics uses a bounty of nature-made ingredients in their ethical brand. Just one of their many spotlighted ingredients, frankincense has been around for more than 4,000 years, and used by Arabian kings, pharoahs and Roman emperors.

Frankincense is known for its toning, firming and rejuvenating properties and is ideal for all skin types. Egyptians mixed frankincense with honey to make a moisturizing mask, along with moringa oil and plant juices in treatments to banish wrinkles.
It has anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and astringent properties for cracked, inflamed and dry skin. To start incorporating frankincense into your skincare regimen, try the Rejuvenating Frankincense Facial Oil and Intense Age-Defying Cream, which use a line-smoothing 3-peptide complex with visible results in just 60 days! The complex supports the skin’s structure showing improved suppleness and line reduction. Turmeric extract brightens skin along with argan, baobab, grapeseed and macadamia oil to deeply nourish, soften and soothe the skin. Organic cocoa butter balances this complex blend for intense moisture and protection.
Coming soon to the Frankincense line is NEW! Frankincense Intense Concentrate, a more concentrated “super-boost” treatment. It offers 100% more peptides than the moisturizer; clinically proven for instant age-defying effects including anti-wrinkle, elasticity and radiance efficacy.

Just 2 pumps massaged gently all over the face morning and night will have you waking up with healthier looking skin. Available starting October 2014 at us.nyrorganics.com.
