Witch Hazel (Hamamelis Virginiana)

Controls oil production, tones, soothes, and conditions skin while enhancing the appearance of dry skin and reduces flaking.

Witch hazel is an excellent natural astringent, reducing inflammation and sanitising the skin. At the same time, it aids with hydration and stabilises the barrier function of the skin. Furthermore, witch hazel reduces trans-dermal water loss (TEWL) while calming the skin and reducing skin redness. In a clinical test, witch hazel proved to have a significant anti-inflammatory effect and helped reduce erythema induced by sunburn.
