With these extreme hot and humid days, we tend to spend a lot of time outdoors. The sun’s UV and UVB rays can be harsh on the skin and it is vital that we protect our skin. Uses of high SPF gels and creams are necessary during summer days. However, recent studies have shown that more and more people are opting for natural products, which can also help work as an anti-inflammatory to bring relief to some skin disorders. Some of us are even looking for locally made skincare products which might be suited to our types of skin and climate.
The most popular ingredient is our locally grown buchu herb, from which many products are made. It was considered the herb to cure all ills, as well as aid in longevity. This ordinary shrub was soon found to have natural anti-inflammatory properties and provide pain relief. This plant has a reputation as a potent medicinal herb and has been used to treat conditions ranging from stomach ailments to eczema. One of the products produced is the Buchulife First Aid Gel, which is highly effective in the treatment of eczema. It provides fast relief from the symptoms of eczema and alleviates inflammation of the epidermis and associated pain. The herb’s potent anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties assist in preventing secondary symptoms resulting from bacterial and fungal infections.
Buchulife First Aid Gel is a clear, non-sticky gel made from buchu oil. It is a natural antiseptic and anti-inflammatory product recommended for use as an antiseptic and antifungal gel for open wounds, burns, bruising and the control of eczema. It is also recommended for joint and muscular pain. A thin layer applied over the affected area will provide much needed relief to the skin.
The most effective moisturizing skin treatment is the Buchulife Derm-Active Moisturizing Cream, which contains natural anti-oxidants, including quercetin. This super moisturizing rich, non-greasy cream has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties, which help improve skin affected by scarring, stretchmarks and signs of aging. The buchulife derm-active cream is suitable for women of all ages and has all the benefits needed from a moisturizing cream.
Buchu’s three main uses are as an anti-inflammatory, an antiseptic and the treatment of skin disorders such as eczema. Developed by Cape Kingdom Nutraceuticals, buchu oil is extracted in a process that is 100% natural and organic. The leaves are handpicked and the raw organic material is processed immediately, resulting in an organic, safe and highly effective product.
