SOOTHE burns and breakouts with this Australian ‘pepper painkiller’

As the years have passed, YOU may have gotten tougher…

But your SKIN has gotten even MORE sensitive!

Between DECADES of shavingsun… and sweat… your skin could be the most reactive it’s EVER been.

That leaves you itchingburningbreaking out… or ALL THREE.

But what if there were a way to get IMMEDIATE, soothing relief?

Well, today’s your lucky day… because there is.

It’s an Australian herbal trick that’s both protective… and calming.

And I’m about to share it with you.

IMMEDIATE relief… in just 5 minutes?


The Aboriginal natives of Australia were clever foragers…

And one of their most renowned discoveries was the Tasmanian pepper (Tasmannia lanceolate), which they used as a “bushfood condiment” in Aboriginal cuisine.

It’s not a pepper fruit like a mild bell pepper… or a spicy chili pepper…

But a small, round, purple-black berry that’s dried into what we might call a “peppercorn.”

It’s still eaten today in Australia, where it thrives in the cold mountains of the continent’s southern extremes. This “mountain pepper” is truly a “warrior species” of the bush!

The Food Standards Australia New Zealand officially considers it a “traditional food” that’s proven wildly popular among modern chefs trying to recapture the native flavors of Australia.

But it’s the fruit and leaf where you’ll find the active ingredient that holds the power to calm your irritated skin.

It’s called “polygodial,” and its activities post a TRIPLE THREAT against overreactive skin sensitivities:

  1. anti-inflammatory to reduce heat, redness, and swelling
  2. anti-allergic, and
  3. broad-spectrum antimicrobial, including antibacterial and antifungal to help clear adult acne and other blemishes.

That first one seems to be the key in providing IMMEDIATE relief from skin discomfort… as polygodial reduces inflammatory markers, including such pro-inflammatory cytokines as interleukin-8 (IL-8).

Studies have shown that this inflammation-busting compound can relieve sensations of burning by as much as 58%… and of itching by as much as 79%

All within a matter of just 5 minutes.

Whether it’s from razor burnsunburnheat rash… or an allergic reaction

Polygodial also appears to IMPROVE skin comfort by INHIBITING the “pain sensor” known as TRPV1.

But unlike traditional pharmaceutical painkillers, it doesn’t just MASK the discomfort you’re feeling.

Because it’s a powerful antioxidant… chock full of free radical scavengers like anthocyanins… it PROTECTS your cells from oxidative damage.

In fact, research has shown the Tasmanian pepper fruit extract to have 3X the antioxidant power of blueberries!

And that can be a Godsend when it comes to staving off or even REPAIRING damage from UV rayspollution… and other environmental factors.

Look for creams and serums that are extracted from Tasmanian pepper berry, or its patented version “Tazman pepper berry.”

You should only need to use just a few drops at a time.

Medical and cosmetic research into this extract and its active compounds has really only ramped up in the last 15 years…

So, expect to see more therapeutic applications for it emerging in the near future.
