Its concentration of essential fatty acids, omega-6 (45 to 60% linoleic acids) and terpenic and phenolic compounds such as carvacrol give it anti-free radical (antioxidant) properties appreciated in anti-aging skincare. The anti-inflammatory action resulting from its antioxidant action will be valuable in case of rheumatic pain, but also to soothe irritation and redness.
