Rosacea - What can You Do?
A typical sign of rosacea is patchy areas of red, tiny red bumps or the visibility of small blood vessels on the face. It is estimated that there are 14 million people in the United States that suffer from the effects of rosacea, which is common in women or men with fair-skin usually between the ages of 25 and 65.
During the Academy of Dermatology's annual meeting, a study was conducted to test the effects of Rooibos Tea, Green Tea and Rosehip Oil on rosacea. It was proven that rooibos tea in skin care products was able to help those with rosacea. The study included 188 women, aged 20 to 55 years old, who all had symptoms of rosacea such as red bumps and visible blood vessels. A sample set of women used the a chemical free green tea and rooibos tea face cleanser twice daily, while other set of women used generic face cleansers. After 6 weeks of the trial, the women who washed with the chemical free tea face cleanser had experienced an 87% reduction in red bumps when compared to those using the store brand cleansers which contained chemicals. This is was the inspiration behind the Made from Earth rosacea products.
Options for Rosacea: Organic Rosehip Serum
This serum contains a high organic content of rosehip seed oil which, for rosacea suffers, is known for strengthening broken and damaged capillaries by acting like an astringent to clean up and reduce redness. It has a high absorbing quality which allows it to penetrate skin effectively. It is naturally high in vitamin C and it is a great way of calming your skin.

Rosacea support for a young woman
I am just writing this e-mail to give you a huge THANK YOU for your amazing products! I have been suffering from rosacea for over two years now, and nothing seemed to work, not even prescription antibiotic cream. I ordered your Rosehip + Hibiscus Face Serum several weeks ago after hearing about it on the internet, yet without particularly high expectations. A little over a month or two later, and my rosacea has almost completely cleared up! I now use this serum all over my face, and my skin hasnt looked this good since I was a little girl (I''m 21 now).
The best thing is that a little goes a long way . . . I have not even used half the bottle yet. Ive just placed an order for more, and am also excited to try your new Green Tea cleanser as well as your Citrus bodywash. Words cannot express how grateful I am to have access to such high quality, affordable organic skin care products which have truly made a difference. I will continue to be your customer for many years to come, and I will be sure to recommend your company to everyone I know -- especially friends with sensitive skin issues. Once again, thank you, and please keep up the good work!

For Sensitive Skin
Hello. I just wanted to let you know how WONDERFUL your products are. I have truly chemically sensitive skin and react to everything. You sent me fantastic size samples to really try the products and gauge a reaction. I have not had any redness, itching or red raised rashes. My skin feels amazing!
The products really keep my skin hydrated without being heavy and greasy like almost all organic lines out there and they are unscented which is essential for me. The cleanser is so gentle. I was nervous about using the vitamin enhanced serum and moisturizer but they are my two favorite products. I am very grateful.

Aloe Vera for a loving husband
A friend of mine did the research and found your website. We placed orders at the same time for the same products and we both are wowed. I had recently tried finding a pure aloe product for my husbands skin problem (skin rash, dryness, enzymatic) and we came up with nothing! My shipment arrived and included the aloe which he used and felt immediate results.
