Description

Centella asiatica contains vitamins A, B, C, and D, together with a range of minerals, including zinc, potassium, calcium, magnesium, manganese, sodium, silica, and selenium. It also contains chemicals known as triterpenoids that stimulate the production of collagen in the body. Flavinoids and amino acids are also found

It has antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. It has traditionally been used as a treatment for skin conditions such as psoriasis, dermatitis, and minor burns. The extract is able to heal wounds and burns because of its ability to increase the blood supply to the affected area, elevate the level of antioxidants in the wound, and encourage the production of fibroblasts, the cells that synthesize collagen. Its collagen-boosting and anti-inflammatory properties mean that centella asiatica can diminish the appearance of stretch marks and keloid scars.

Centella asiatica has a toning and tightening effect on the skin when applied topically. As a result, it is often found as an ingredient in skin firming creams and lotions. Due to its ability to stimulate collagen production, centella asiatica can improve the appearance of ageing skin affected by fine lines and wrinkles. The reduction of collagen in the skin’s supporting matrix is a key reason for the formation of fine lines and wrinkles as skin matures. Its ability to replenish collagen supplies makes centella asiatica a useful anti-aging ingredient.

Centella asiatica has a positive effect on skin affected by cellulite, which causes a dimpled, lumpy appearance similar to orange peel. Cellulite typically appears on the thighs, buttocks, and upper arms. By increasing blood flow, delivering potent antioxidants, reducing inflammation, and acting as a diuretic, centella asiatica smoothes and detoxifies areas affected by cellulite.

Usage: Up to 10%. Typically 3% to 5%. May be added to heated water phase of your formulation.
May be added to your toner or other leave on products.

Combines well with Horse Chestnut Extract
