Frankincense: From tree sap to incense to Neal’s Yard’s super serum

Stress has a nasty effect on our skin. It accelerates the signs of aging and dulls the complexion. Neal’s Yard Remedies sets out to first nullify those effects by harnessing the therapeutic properties of frankincense in relieving stress with the Frankincense Intense Lift Serum.


This sacred ingredient has been revered for thousands of years for its rejuvenating abilities. In fact, frankincense is clinically proven to promote a feeling of wellbeing and relaxation when its aroma is inhaled. Sustainably sourced from the Dhofar region of Oman, only high quality resin is transformed into the extract and essential oils the super serum uses.



As stress melts away each time you massage a couple drops of the Frankincense Intense Lift Serum into the skin, the aroma of frankincense gently cradles your countenance while the other key ingredients of the serum revitalise from within.


Hyaluronic acid replenishes the body’s natural reserve that diminishes with age and prevents the breakdown of collagen. It also stimulates elastin production, hence plumping up fine lines and wrinkles. Next comes the technology that puts the lift in the serum. A trio of components visibly lifts and recontours the skin. First, the protein-rich micro algae protects against harmful environmental stressors and boosts skin’s natural elasticity. Ribose—a naturally occurring sugar in the bodyimproves cell function and is clinically proven to reduce wrinkles and amplify radiance. Finally, one of the richest plant sources of omega-3, linseed oil, hydrates and tones the skin. 



Reap the benefits of the serum by applying to clean skin in the morning and evening. Squeeze two drops onto your fingertips and inhale the aroma for a few moments. Then massage onto your face and neck with a light, upwards, stroking motion until fully absorbed.


The Frankincense Intense Lift Serum is available at all Neal’s Yard Remedies stores and counters. For more information, visit
