Boswellia Serrata (Boswelic Acid)

Boswellia serrata in skin care:  anti-inflammatory, anti-acne, treat sun damage, sun dammage repair

Boswellia Serrate (also known as Boswelic acid) is extracted from the serrata tree. It is an organic skin care ingredient that is known to have anti-inflammatory properties. Boswellia is therefore a good choice for an anti-inflammatory cream. Boswellia serrata may also be added to acne medications, and other recipes that require a non-steroidal anti inflammatory. This extract has been popularized as Boswelox™ by L’Oreal and its Wrinkle-de-crease.
