If you’re familiar with SKIN SAVER products from Moraz, then you are surely familiar with one of our favorite products— Myrtle, which is renowned for its otherworldly antimicrobial properties.
When uses in the Moraz line of multi-purpose ointments, skin saver oils, and skin booster serums, the myrtle combines with the antioxidant properties of pomegranate and polygonum to provide the skin on your neck and face with the perfect formula to help reduce the early signs of aging and reduce harmful free radicals in order to have healthy, radiant, skin.
What is Myrtle?
Myrtle is a small, aromatic shrub that is native to the warmer climate regions of North Africa and elsewhere in the Mediterranean. This aromatic shrub has a long history that dates back to when the shrub was used to represent love and fidelity.
Lemon Myrtle leaves are incredibly rich in essential oils that are used by herbalists to help support lung function and the oil from myrtle can also be commonly found in children’s cough syrup.
Hight Citrical Concentration
Myrtle has a high citral concentration which makes it an effective antimicrobial and antibacterial agent that is also used as an antiviral and antifungal disinfectant. Apart from being naturally fragrant, Lemon Myrtle can kill the bacteria that cause body odor when the bacteria break down sweat into acid. Killing the bacteria that causes body odor essentially eliminates the unpleasant smell altogether. For this reason, when applied to the body, it can help kill microbes that contribute to everything from acne to athlete’s foot.
Using Myrtle to Treat Acne
As mentioned above, myrtle, when used in topical creams, ointments, and skin rejuvenating serums, also defends and protects the skin from micro bacteria that clogs and infects the pores on your skin causing acne. Lemon Myrtle, the most popular myrtle for use in the cosmetic industry, has a high concentration of the compound 3,7-dimethyl-2,6-octadienal (citral) that is used to treat acne by ridding the skin of micro-bacteria.
