MAYSAMA Green Rooibos Pressed Serum is a high-performance antioxidant serum, formulated with rooibos, better known as Redbush by its tea-drinking devotees, as a bioactive ingredient. Our unique formula incorporates Aspalathin-enriched Green Rooibos as an Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API).
Green Rooibos comes from the unfermented leaves and has a much higher antioxidant content than red rooibos, as the flavonoids have not been destroyed by oxidation. MAYSAMA’s pharmaceutical grade green rooibos has a patented extraction process that greatly enhances the aspalathin content, the main flavonoid responsible for its antioxidant activity, giving a far superior cosmetic ingredient.
Rooibos serves as an antioxidant powerhouse and antibacterial agent, as well as a rich source of alpha-hydroxy acid and zinc to fight off premature ageing. The high content of flavonoids helps to reduce inflammation caused by oxidative stress, actively working to repair damaged skin and restore epidermal layers. Uniquely, rooibos protects and repairs preadipocytes, the predominant cells in adipose (fat) tissue, responsible for maintaining skin fullness.
