Red Cedar oil is derived from a cedar tree, namely the red cedar or Juniperus virgiana. It is extremely beneficial because of its purifying properties. With its anti-bacterial property, it helps fight acne and other skin infections. And its sedating ability helps relieve itching. Topping this is its astringent action, which helps reduce the oiliness of the skin; also helping in acne reduction. The same toning activity also tightens the pores and the muscles, firming up a maturing skin.
