Resin extract has scientifically proven healing, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties. Thanks to this, it effectively accelerates wound healing and can be used in the treatment of skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, eczema, and others. Let's look at the studies that confirmed this effect of cedar nut oil and cedar resin.
Healing properties of resin extract
The healing effect of cedar nut oil enriched with cedar resin is important both for household injuries (for example, scratches or burns) and for skin conditions, in which the integrity of the skin is often compromised. The fact that resin extract accelerates healing is due to its effect on two mechanisms at once:
- Activation of large granular lymphocytes (LGL). Occurs thanks to the phytoncides contained in cedar nut oil. 
- Launching phagocytosis, the process of capturing and digesting any pathogenic particles. It is one of the most important stages of healing. Phagocytosis involves special cells, neutrophils. A 2021 scientific review shows that neutrophil activity is positively influenced by flavonoids, alkaloids, and terpenes, all of which are contained in resin extract.  By the way, the authors of the review concluded that thanks to this, resin extract is effective in the treatment of atopic dermatitis.
Resin extract for acne
Resin extract helps heal acne and reduce its manifestations for two reasons:
- Cedar resin reduces inflammation. The anti-inflammatory effect of cedar resin has been proven to speed up the healing of any skin conditions. So, in particular, resin extract contains a large number of terpenes, among which there is Terpinen-4-ol. A 2012 scientific paper showed that medications containing this terpene help with acne. 
- The antimicrobial effect of resin extract is also of great importance. Acne is caused by special anaerobic bacteria — P. acnes, as well as streptococci. A laboratory experiment showed that terpenes from resin extract reduce the resistance of pathogens, due to which microbes and bacteria are destroyed more quickly and stop reproducing.  Alcohols and amino acids contained in resin extract also have the ability to destroy pathogens.
Resin extract against itching and dryness in skin conditions
Most skin conditions (eg, psoriasis, dermatitis, and eczema) are characterized by increased skin dryness, flaking, and itching. In this context, the moisturizing and softening effect of resin extract is especially important. Unsaturated fatty acids from cedar nut oil support healthy skin lipid synthesis, and amino acids are part of the skin's Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF). This eliminates dryness and itching.
