Boldo: Skin Superstar

What Is ‘Boldo’?

Deep in the vibrant and lush jungles of South America lie the evergreen shrubs of the Boldo tree. Boldo is a slow-growing plant indigenous to the regions of Morocco. The herb is known as a medicinal/ therapeutic herb and cooking spice in South America. Currently, Boldo grows in Brazil, Italy, South America, and North Africa. Only recently has research shown the benefits of Boldo and its miraculous effects on the skin.

How Does Boldo Work?

Boldo is one of the world’s greatest natural antioxidants! Most research focuses on the herbal and medicinal effects of drinking it in a tea form. Yet, many believe that it is a suitable alternative to Vitamin E. The Boldo tree produces waxy leaves and aromatic flowers. Concentrated oils are derived from extracting leaves and flowers from the bark. Furthermore, the herb is an anti-inflammatory! Therefore, it is an effective ingredient in OxyGeneo treatments along with skin creams and other topical products.

What Will it do for my Skin?

When used in skincare treatments, it works to lighten and brighten the skin tone. Its scientific name, Diacetyl-Boldine, actively penetrates deep into the skin to provide immediate results. The microcapsules extracted from the plant regulate melanin within the skin and block stress receptors. Thus, it lightens pigmentation and offers a fresh and bright complexion.

How can I incorporate this ingredient into my OxyGeneo facial?

OxyGeneo uses Boldo to achieve luminous and even complexion with an immediate brightening effect. So, it is most desirable to people who suffer from lifeless, tired, and aging skin in need of a boost of rejuvenation. This gradual lightener is rich in vitamins and visibly tightens and rejuvenates the skin for a more firm and youthful appearance.

Diacetyl-Boldine acts on melanin production to reduce epidermal pigmentation up to the proven efficiency of 70% after two months of regular application. These results are almost immediately visible with OxyGeneo treatments. Using brightening treatments like Boldo reduces hyperpigmentation, environmental skin damage, and aging signs. This happens while visibly firming, lifting, and refining the skin texture to reveal a healthy-looking glow.

Skin brightening has never been so simple!
