Witch Hazel :

A plant with potent medicinal properties that can be utilized in a variety of ways is witch hazel.

There are many species of witch hazel, but teas and ointments are the most common uses for Hamamelis virginiana. Typically applied to the skin to reduce inflammation and calm sensitive skin. It also contains antioxidants that prevent widespread inflammation and neutralize disease-causing free radicals that can accumulate in the body (1, 2, 3).

Studies indicate that witch hazel applied topically can effectively reduce inflammation and soothe the skin (4, 5). Using a lotion containing as little as 10% witch hazel extract was effective in reducing skin inflammation and treating erythema, according to a second study involving 40 individuals (4).

Green Tea Leaf Extract :

Green Tea Extract, when used for cosmetic purposes, can help to reduce the appearance of aging by calming irritation, evening out discoloration, reducing the appearance of cellulite and puffiness as well as soothing redness and reducing swelling.  Green Tea Extract for skin can also repair skin damage, exfoliate skin and reduce the appearance of blackheads while eliminating dead skin, dirt, bacteria, and other pollutants on the skin’s surface (6).  Green Tea Extract, when used medicinally, can soothe muscle soreness, reduces joint pain and promotes fat loss.
A modest 2005 study of 80 women indicated an improvement of skin elasticity of individuals treated with a combination regimen of topical and oral green tea.
The topical application of cosmetics containing green tea extract was shown to prevent sun-induced skin damage in a 2013 long-term trial of 24 individuals (Reliable Source). Researchers have found that cosmetic formulations including green tea extract enhance the microrelief of the skin and have considerable hydrating benefits.

Horse Chestnut Seed Extract :

Horse Chestnut Seed Oil can assist in evening out skin tone and reducing the visibility of dark spots. It functions by promoting microcirculation and toning the superficial blood vessels. This results in anti-inflammatory effects and smoother skin by preventing the stagnation and buildup of blood cells in any one location.
It is also believed that horse chestnut seed oil protects collagen and elastin, the proteins that make up the structure of the veins. This strengthens the integrity of the vessels themselves, resulting in a more uniform skin tone and a reduction in the visibility of veins.
When applied to the skin, horse chestnut seed oil inhibits the enzyme hyaluronidase, which is notorious for degrading hyaluronic acid in the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a potent humectant that is crucial for maintaining the skin’s moisture levels.
Benefits of Horse Chestnut Seed Oil
  • It evens out skin tone.
  • It has anti-inflammatory effects.
  • It is an effective antioxidant.
  • It can assist to moisturize the skin.
  • It is excellent for anti-aging treatments.

Gotu Kola Leaf Extract :

Gotu kola, which has been revered by Daoist masters, monks, and yogis for centuries is now quickly becoming a favorite in modern medicine and skin care due to its healing and anti-aging properties.
Gotu kola is high in triternene saponins, a compound that helps keep skin tight and firm. It is also high in flavonoids, which act as antioxidants and fight free radical damage. It promotes the formation of collagen and skin tissue, which is essential for maintaining the elasticity and youthful glow of the skin. Another advantage of gotu kola is its ability to improve blood circulation.

Gotu kola can minimize the appearance of stretch marks, according to a 2013 study. It’s thought that the terpenoids found in gotu kola increase collagen production in the body. This may aid in the prevention of new stretch marks as well as the healing of existing ones.
