Indigenous plants can make effective skin care products and Springbok Casino is rated the best online casino South Africa!

What does the best online casino South Africa have in common with the cosmetics industry?  They both form part of a multi-billion-dollar market!  If you are smart, you’ll make a point of enjoying the benefits of both these sectors.  One provides sizzling entertainment, whilst the other offers ageless and glowing skin.

Market Value: Online Casino South Africa vs Skin Care Products

Our online casino in South Africa represents just one small facet of the global gambling industry.  Similarly, oils and topical emulsions derived from indigenous South African shrubs and trees are relatively low impact.  They account for an infinitesimal share of the beauty and personal care market worldwide.

What is interesting is that one market by far eclipses the other in value.  Which brings us to the burning question.  Is it the likes of our online casino South Africa that is generating the mega bucks or do cosmeceuticals and skin care products scoop the top spot?

Well, here is an upset for the books.  In 2022, the global skincare market is estimated to be worth around $163.5 billion!  The global gambling market tips the scales at $75 billion.  What that of course means is that gels, moisturisers and face masques generate more than two times that of Springbok Casino and its online equivalents.

In literal essence, cosmetics outshine all remote gambling platforms.  That includes our online casino South Africa, as well as its hundreds of other online gambling providers.  Poker rooms and sports betting platforms are also part of the equation.

What that tells you is that vanity is one of the driving forces of the global economy.  Put the two markets together and they account for close on $240 billion in revenue… per year.  That is roughly equal to the GDP of Portugal or the Czech Republic!

Identifying the homegrown participants in the online gaming sector is easy.  As you are all no doubt aware, Springbok Casino is regularly rated the best online casino in South Africa!  It is also a fact that South Africans are known to be generous and helpful.  In that respect, we follow our proudly South African traditions with our generous promotions and bonuses – and our friendly and helpful support team!

Let’s get back to the billion-dollar beauty industry and where our endemic flora fits in.  What are these plants called?  How does the cosmeceutical industry use these naturally occurring ingredients to beautify the masses?  How exactly does it help us maintain a healthy skin, free of blemishes, wrinkles and age spots?

Everlasting (Helichrysum Odoratissimum)

If you have hiked the mountains of the Eastern and Western Cape, you will have encountered everlastings. These distinctive plants with their silvery leaves and dried-out flowers are part of the Asteraceae family.  Locals may know them as ‘imphepho’. The richly aromatic incense the plants emit is used in rituals to commune with ancestors.

Oil harvested from these plants has antiseptic, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties.  When applied topically, the oil calms and soothes irritated skin.  It can assist in the healing of scar tissue, and is an effective treatment for acne, rosacea, psoriasis and dermatitis.

Everlasting oil is reputed to have anti-aging properties that drive the rejuvenation of skin cells.  It lightens and brightens the skin.  It also reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles caused by aging and sun damage.  This sounds like a miracle plant if you ask us!

Our online casino for South Africa obviously can’t enhance your complexion or turn back the clock on some of your fine lines.  That said, it can provide endless hours of entertainment, where real money is at stake.  Why not sign up at Springbok Casino?  There are literally hundreds of Real Time Gaming developed online casino games to choose from – one more exciting than the next.

Tsamma Melon (Citrullus Lanatus)

The Tsamma melon or wild watermelon is endemic to the dry, desert regions of Southern and Central Africa.  It is instantly recognisable from its large green and yellow melon-like fruit.  What is less well known about the so-called ‘bitterboela’ is the role it plays in moisturising and hydrating the skin.

Oil pressed from the seeds of the melon is remarkably high in omega 6 fatty acids.  It also contains high levels of vitamins A, C and E and is rich in free radical savaging anti-oxidants.  Omega 6 is known for hydrating rough and irritated skin, reducing the effects of hyperpigmentation and accelerating the healing of wounds.

Vitamin A is a natural moisturiser that supports the body’s immune system and it keeps the skin looking plump and radiant.  Vitamin C accelerates the production of collagen and elastin, and vitamin E helps to strengthen the skin barrier function and has moisturising and healing properties.

Vitamins aren’t our thing at Springbok Online Casino South Africa… neither are fatty acids or anti-oxidants.  What we are remarkably good at is providing outstanding real money gaming online.  You can expect excellence… from the sleek responsiveness of the software to the eclectic collection of online casino bonuses!

Marula (Sclerocarya Birrea)

The Marula tree is one of the iconic trees of Africa.  The leaves, bark, roots and fruit are used for a multitude of purposes.  It is as renowned for its myriad of health benefits as it is for intoxicating elephants, monkeys and baboons!

In the burgeoning cosmeceutical industry, it is the white kernels and outer husks of the fruit that is most prized.  Along with providing an earthy nutty base note to body lotions, moisturisers and soaps, Marula is a natural apothecary.

The oil extracted from the fruit contains a slew of antioxidants, vitamins and fatty acids:

  • L-arginine acid
  • Glutamic acid
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin E
  • Palmitic fatty acid
  • Stearic acid
  • Oleic acid
  • Myristic acid

Together these compounds smooth out fine lines and wrinkles and soften, nourish and hydrate the skin.  When applied topically, marula oil rejuvenates dry and aging skin.  It is a natural sun screen and boosts the immune system.

The antimicrobial and cleansing properties of the oil helps prevent acne and other skin irritations.  It is by all accounts, one of the most effective base materials for the wide range of skin care products that are available on the market today.

From Rooibos to Springbok Casino – South Africa Has It All!

Another famed plant is rooibos.  Products containing rooibos sell for ridiculous amounts in the global market –when we brew cups full every day as an inexpensive tea.  Along with our other famed flora, we certainly have all the ingredients to take care of any skin ailment growing in our backyard, so to speak!

What we also have is Springbok Casino – and when it comes online casinos in South Africa, we’re unmatched!  As for how much we contribute towards the global gambling market, we can’t say for sure.  What we can say is that we are rated the number one online casino for South Africa for good reason.  Sign up and find out why, for yourself!
