REPORTED BENEFITS AND USES
Hibiscus is rich in antioxidants, called anthocyanocides which are proven to help fight skin-damaging free radicals that spawn when pollutants such as ultraviolet radiation and traffic pollution make contact with the skin resulting in premature skin-ageing. These anthocyanocides also help in reducing the appearance of large pores for a smoother complexion. They also have an anti-inflammatory effect and can help to soothe inflamed skin, making Hibiscus suitable for those prone to very sensitive skin.
The natural acids present in Hibiscus Oil help to purify your skin by breaking down dead skin and increasing cell turnover, they can even help to control acne breakouts. Moreover, Hibiscus has a naturally high mucilage content, a sticky substance produced by plants that help with the storage of water and food. Mucilage makes a fantastic natural skin moisturiser that is gentle on sensitive skin enhanceing the skin's ability to retain moisture, which is a key factor in retaining a youthful complexion. Hibiscus Oil also has been known for its hair conditioning properties - stimulating hair growth and helping to prevent hair fall.
