Boswellia is a plant that produces Indian frankincense, known in Sanskrit as “shallaki” and in Latin as Olibanum Indicum.
Boswellia extracts influence skin-aging processes positively: dysfunctions in the skin barrier are repaired, inflammatory processes and collagen damages are reduced, and heat shock proteins and anti-microbial peptides are stimulated as protective factors.
At ila, we use a unique blend of three different types of Boswellia extracts, taken from the resin of the Frankincense trees from three different regions – India (Boswellia Serrata), Africa – Somalia/Ethiopia (Boswellia Papyrifera) and Middle East – Jemen/Oman (Boswellia Sacra/Carterii).
