Definition of Rooibos and Beauty Products That Contain Rooibos

Definition: Rooibos

Rooibos is a naturally-decaffeinated and full-bodied tea that comes from a bright-green needled shrub in South Africa. When the needles are processed they turn red, and in Afrikaans, rooibos actually means red bush.

Not only is rooibos low in tannins, but it has a strong aroma and is one of the most popular drinks in South Africa. In addition to tasting delicious and being an excellent source of antioxidants (it contains higher concentrations than other teas), it can also be used as a toner to reduce puffiness and redness, especially around your eyes.

Try Yes To Tomatoes Truly Terrific Body Butter ($22.95), Dermalogica Daily Resurfacer™ ($118), California Tan Extender ($28.99) and Sunsilk Longer & Stronger Shampoo & Conditioner ($4.49 each).

Stockists: California Tan (1300 867 826), Dermalogica (1800 659 118), Sunsilk (02 8303 6464), Yes To Tomatoes (02 9905 7300).
