Benefits Of Centella Asiatica In Cosmetics

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

Today, we’re looking at the benefits of Centella Asiatica in medicines, drugs and ordinary skincare. 

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 can increase wound restoration, which is why it is often used in medicines and drugs in Korea. Medical grade Centella asiatica has been proven to enhance antioxidant activity at the site of the wound, is able to condition skin and increase blood flow.

Centella Asiatica in medicine and drugs is also thought to inhibit scar tissue formation. It can boost the healing process, which also assists in resolving scars.

Increasing collagen

The three main components of Centella Asiatica increase both collagen and hydroxyproline. They are believed to assist in promoting cell proliferation. That's another reason why this is a popular ingredient at hair growth clinics in Korea, as well as plastic surgery centers. 

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.
