BENEFITS OF CENTELLA ASIATICA IN COSMETICS

 

It’s one of K-Beauty’s favourite new ingredients, but what is Centella Asiatica and why should we love it too?

 

Today, we’re looking at the benefits of Centella Asiatica in cosmetics. 

 

WHAT IS CENTELLA ASIATICA?

Centella Asiatica is a plant that grows in the marshy soils of Southeast Asia, Australia, and Africa.

It is known for its restorative effects and wound healing characteristics.

 

WHY IS CENTELLA ASIATICA GOOD FOR SKIN?

In beauty products, Centella Asiatica (aka “Cica”) is used for its smoothing, soothing and purifying properties.

 

Circulation and Regeneration

The leaves of the Centella Asiatica plant are known to have positive benefits on microcirculation. They can also help calm and regenerate skin.

The plant also includes chemicals that increase wound restoration. Because it enhances antioxidant activity at the site of the wound, it is able to condition skin and increase blood flow.

Centella Asiatica is also thought to inhibit scar tissue formation. It can boost the healing process, which also assists in resolving the scars caused by pimples.

 

Increasing collagen

The three main components of Centella Asiatica increase both collagen and hydroxyproline. They are believed to assist in promoting cell proliferation.

 

Treating skin irritations and issues

Centella Asiatica is excellent at treating scratchy and irritated skin, as well as reduce the appearance of visible blood vessels and stretch marks.
