What is Centella Asiatica and what does it do for your skin?

Centella Asiatica, also known as Tiger Grass, is a perennial herb native to the wetlands of Asia and has been revered in Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. Its powerful healing properties have recently catapulted it into the spotlight of the skincare world. Renowned for its ability to improve skin health, enhance wound healing, and boost collagen production, Centella Asiatica is a coveted ingredient in serums, creams, and masks aimed at soothing and rejuvenating the skin.

What are the benefits of Centella Asiatica?

1. Soothing Irritation
Centella Asiatica is a go-to ingredient for calming inflammation and redness. Its soothing properties make it ideal for sensitive or compromised skin, providing relief from irritations and helping to restore the skin's natural barrier.

2. Enhancing Wound Healing
The herb is historically known for its ability to heal wounds, burns, and other skin abrasions. It speeds up skin repair by promoting collagen synthesis and increasing antioxidant levels at the site of wounds.

3. Anti-Aging Effects
By boosting collagen production, Centella Asiatica helps to maintain the skin’s elasticity and firmness. Regular use can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, contributing to a more youthful complexion.

4. Hydrating Properties
Despite its potent actives, Centella Asiatica is gentle and hydrating. It helps to keep the skin moist and supple, preventing dry patches and maintaining a balanced hydration level.

How to use Centella Asiatica?

Centella Asiatica can be found in various skincare products such as toners, serums, face creams, and masks. For best results, look for products that list Centella Asiatica extract high on their ingredient list to ensure a potent concentration. One of the best ways to incorporate Centella Asiatica into your skincare routine is through our Soothing 5-Plant Extract Serum." This product is designed to harness the regenerative properties of Centella, along with other beneficial plant extracts, to provide optimal skin repair and protection.

What can you combine Centella Asiatica with?

The Soothing 5-plant extract serum with Centella Asiatica can be combined well with all our serums.

Niacinamide: Combining Centella Asiatica with niacinamide (Barrier Boost B3 Serum) can be particularly beneficial for those looking to strengthen their skin's barrier and improve overall skin texture. Niacinamide, also known as vitamin B3, helps to calm inflammation, minimize pores, and regulate sebum production. Together, these ingredients can effectively soothe sensitive or acne-prone skin and enhance skin clarity.

Tranexamic Acid: This powerful ingredient is known for its ability to brighten skin and reduce the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Using tranexamic acid (Tone-Evening Tranexamic Acid Serum) in conjunction with Centella Asiatica can help accelerate skin healing and reduce redness, making it a great combination for evening out skin tone and boosting radiance.

Vitamin C: When paired with Golden Vitamin C Serum, Centella Asiatica can help to maximize the antioxidant protection of your skin. Vitamin C is an effective anti-aging ingredient that helps to protect against environmental damage, promote collagen production, and brighten the skin.

These combinations can be incorporated into your skincare routine to target specific skin concerns more effectively.
