UNLOCKING THE AGE WELL SECRET OF FRANKINCENSE
We use the world’s first certified organic Boswellia sacra frankincense from Oman in our Frankincense Intense™ Lift collection. In the heart of Oman, the calming aroma of burning frankincense has been treasured for centuries. Sustainably sourced from the resin of the Boswellia sacra trees that grow wild in the Dhofar region of Oman, the precious resin is expertly harvested using traditional tools before being hand-sorted and distilled to extract the pure essential oil, leaving behind a by-product.
We decided to look into the properties of this by-product and joined forces with a university research centre in Italy who carried out a patented enzymatic process to exploit its full potential. The process transformed the by-product into an exclusive active ingredient –Frankincense Active Phyto Complex.
By using the by-product, we’ve made the whole process even more sustainable. Extensive studies on Frankincense Active Phyto Complex, which contains boswellic acid and polyphenols, show it has collagen-protecting properties and a profound antioxidant effect*.

This serum is silky soft and a little goes a long way. A few drops on my fingers tips, an inhale of its lovely fragrance, and smooth it on. You in combination with the other lift products and my skin feels and looks great.
For years I have tried just about any reasonably "natural" product that claimed to increase firmness. This one actually works. Nothing will overcome the effects of gravity and loss of collagen, but this really does improve contours.
I use it from sample sachets, so avoiding the problem with non-working pipette I read about here. Yes, the serum is thick, but not too much, it's sticky, probably due to the high amount of tapioca starch and requires a cream afterwards, but who uses serum as a sole product anyway? It smells adorable like the cream and makes the skin smooth and soft - isn't it all such a product is expected to do? And yes, it's not very economical since I need about 1ml. to cover my face, but my skin devours huge amounts of cosmetics anyway and I've learned over time that one shouldn't be thrifty with quantities if she wants a really good skin. In skincare quantity matters as much as quality, especially when you are ageing. Ah, and the serum conforms with other products, which is very important for user like me who likes variety and mixing.
I have been using the Frankincense Intense Lift products for quite a while now. Previously I had used the Frankincense Intense products, and before that other facial products from Neal's Yard (I also use other products). All the Frankincense Intense products have been lovely to use and I am very happy with them. No moisturiser prevents lines/ ageing (else there would be nobody having face lifts!) but in my view these products do look after my 63 year old face very well. Because Neal's Yard products contain plant oils/ have ingredients originating from plants I always read the ingredients lists in 'best attempt' to ensure I have no reaction to the products, which fortunately I have not (I do not have an allergy to any of the ingredients).
I started using the serum in conjunction with the Frankincense lift moisturiser three weeks ago and I have to say they are both brilliant. I have firmer, clearer and smoother looking skin. I have used many high end products but this is definitely the one I've seen the best results with. Would highly recommend.
Serum is best I've ever used, but only lasted 2 months. I ended up shaking the serum out of the bottle, due to the bad dispenser. Too much always came out and thetefore didn't last long. Smell, consistency and look of my skin was a 5 star, but hassle of pipette and cost loses a star
Not sure why people are finding the dispenser such a problem - maybe I have a redesigned version, but it works perfectly for me. So my advice is, don't be put off - obviously some people have genuine difficulties but I find the dispenser is great to use, so it's a matter of opinion. More importantly, the product is lovely: glides onto the skin, especially if you've used a toner beforehand, and skin feels supple and enriched.
Yes I know there is an issue with the pump in this serum however the effects this serum has had on my skin is amazing. I have been using for a month now and I will never be without my frankincense serum every again. I have used many top brands in the past and not one would hold a candle to how amazing my skin feels and looks since using my Neal's yard serum. My dad noticed how my skin looks so good and at 82 years of age he bought both the serum and the eye cream. I would give this serum 10 stars if I could.
