Rosemary Oil, Bergamot Oil, and Rosemary Extracts as Potential Treatment for Acne

In the mid-20th century, the chemical compound phenoxyethanol was first isolated from the bark of the rosemary plant, which has a rich collection of botanical ingredients.

Today, the extract of the plant, known as phenoxyethylene, is used as a topical ingredient in several cosmetics and personal care products.

The chemical compound, which is also found in coffee and cocoa beans, is a potent sunscreen ingredient that has been found to reduce skin damage from UV rays and reduce inflammation.

While the compound’s benefits may be limited in the short term, studies have shown that it has potential as a treatment for acne and other skin conditions, particularly on acne prone skin.

As part of its investigation into the use of rosemary oil and rosemary extracts as potential treatments for acne, the researchers analyzed data from more than 300 people, and found that the products contained significantly more rosemary than either of the other two ingredients in the study.

A study published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology in 2018 examined the effects of rosemarie extract on the skin of people with mild to moderate acne and found significant improvement with the oil.

The results of the new study, which was conducted in collaboration with the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), show that rosemary oils contain more rosemarin than other oils.

Rosemary oils, as well as the botanical compounds contained in rosemary, are often used as ingredients in facial scrubs and other products that are meant to improve the appearance of your skin.

However, the use in cosmetic products has not been studied for their effectiveness.

The study also found that rosemaries extracts may have similar effects on acne as they do on other skin treatments.

However to determine whether rosemarys extracts could be effective as a new treatment for inflammatory skin conditions or if they were more harmful to skin, the study analyzed the chemical compounds contained within the rosemarian extracts.

In particular, the scientists examined the concentrations of benzoyl peroxide (COP) and dehydroascorbic acid (DHA) in rosemarium oil and found they were not different than the concentrations found in the skin.

Both chemicals are used as exfoliants, and both act on the cells of the skin that cause inflammation and damage.

The researchers also found higher levels of vitamin C in rosemars extracts compared to other oils and found the rosemarian oil had more of the vitamin C content than the other oils in the samples.

The research was conducted by the International Centre for Tropical Plant Health and Nutrition (ICTPHE) and was funded by the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council, the United Kingdom Department of Health, and the United States Department of Agriculture.
