Native to the Mediterranean, rosemary is a herb which is often used to flavour soups, sauces, stews and meats such as lamb.
However, there is more to cooking when it comes to this evergreen wonder plant. As well as being known for boosting the memory, reducing stress and strengthening the immune system, it can also be made into an essential oil. In this form it acts as a natural antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and disinfectant as well being used to stimulate hair growth. It can also be used for anxiety, depression, headache, rheumatism, respiratory problems and in the care of skin and hair.
Many of the Dermalogica products we stock at Pure-Beauty, contain Rosemary and we have had a look at just a few of them.
The Dermalogica Essential Cleansing Solution is a rich, creamy cleanser that nourishes the skin as well as cleaning away the dirt of the day and dead cells. Natural Safflower Oil softens and conditions skin whilst powerful Vitamins E and C smooth the skin. Extracts of Rosemary and Lemon refresh tired skin leaving it feeling clean, soft and supple.
Purifying essential oils of Tea Tree, Lemon, Eucalyptus and Rosemary are used in the Dermalogica Conditioning Body Wash to invigorate the skin. This popular product is soap-free and acid-balanced so that skin is left feeling refreshed and clean but moisture isn’t stripped whilst washing. The pure, botanical extracts provide a natural conditioning lather and because the formula is enriched with essential oils, skin is left smooth and supple.
If you feel like you need a little extra boost why pop some Dermalogica Hydro-Active Mineral Salts in your bath? The mineral-rich sea salts, kelp, essential oils, spices and skin-smoothing enzymes come together to exfoliate the skin leaving it super-smooth. Sandalwood, Lavender, Orange and Clary Sage oils are mixed with those of Lemon, and Tea Tree, so skin is left silky smooth. The warming and fragrant spices of Coriander, Cinnamon and Ginger relax the body and uplift the senses for a soothing, stress-reducing muscle soak. When you get out of the bath, not only will your skin glow but you head will of cleared and you’ll feel totally relaxed.

Created for even the most sensitive skin, an aromatic blend of Rosemary, Lemon Peel, Eucalyptus and Tea Tree essential oils fight odour leaving you feeling fresh and ready to face the day.
