Rooibos Tea Extract Is New from Jarchem

November 15, 2005

Move over, green tea: Jarchem, Newark, NJ, introduced rooibos tea extract. Cultivated solely in the Cederberg region of South Africa, rooibos is primarily known as a healthy, caffeine-free tea, according to Jarchem executives. Now, due to its anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, hypoallergenic and antioxidant properties, rooibus is recognized as an excellent all-natural ingredient for personal care products.
Rooibos extract can be used in body lotions, face wash, toners, anti-acne preparations, anti-aging formulations, after-sun care products, shampoos, conditioners, baby care and sports products. Jarchem executives said rooibos has also been shown to accelerate the healing process of various skin ailments such as eczema, sunburn, acne, allergies and teeth and mouth inflammations. Additionally, rooibos contains quercetin, a substance that increases serotonin levels for a natural feeling of well-being.
Rooibos extract is a free-flowing powder that is water-soluble and can easily be blended into skin care emulsions. It has a mild, tea-like flavor that does not influence the fragrance of the final product. It is caffeine-free, low in tannins and low in chlorophyll.
“Jarchem is proud to be among the first companies to offer all-natural rooibos extract,” said Art Hein, vice president of Jarchem’s specialty chemical division. “This extract has been scientifically proven to have some truly extraordinary properties that will enhance the benefits and value of many skin care, body care, hair care and baby care products.”
Jarchem’s specialty division is the exclusive North American distributor of the Karlshamns, Sweden, line including specialty lipids, fats, oils and shea butter-based products for skin care, hair care and cosmetic preparations. More info: Website: www.jarchem.com.
