Vanilla Extract & Its Beauty Benefits

While most of us are probably most familiar with vanilla extract as a food flavouring, it is also a commonly used natural ingredient used in skincare due to its wealth of benefits.

Extracted from the seed of the vanilla plant, the edible extract has plenty of useful beauty benefits which include:

  • High antioxidant properties help to protect our skin from free-radical damage and external stressors keeping aging signs at bay
  • Anti-inflammatory properties which are helpful in soothing irritated skin
  • Anti-bacterial properties that help prevent breakouts of acne and healing acne flareups
  • Non-Sensitizing in that the extract itself (specifically the Vanilla planifolia variant) is particularly mild on skin, so its suitable for use on even the most sensitive of skin
  • Natural scent and taste so that there is no need to add any artificial fragrances when vanilla’s natural form gives off such a pleasant aroma

Oregano Extract & Its Beauty Benefits

Like Vanilla, Oregano is also more commonly known as a spice in the kitchen, and not so much as a beauty ingredient. But hey, that just means we’re using natural ingredients that are safe enough to eat!

The Oregano extract, or essential oil, is derived from the leaves and shoots of the Green Oregano plant also known as Origanum vulgare, an incredible medicinal ingredient with plenty of benefits – beauty and beyond:

  • Anti-inflammatory and Healing Properties that helps to soothe inflammatory skin conditions like rosacea, swelling, and sensitive skin, and speed up the healing process
  • High in antioxidants that help defend the skin against free radicals, helps in preventing ageing caused by exposure to the sun, giving your skin a healthy glow.
  • Beauty benefits aside, oregano essential oils are also helpful in treating uncomfortable respiratory issues, reducing aching pain in joints, and more.
