Why are we so obsessed with Witch Hazel?

Witch Hazel, is a common North American shrub originally used by American Indians to fight swelling, sores, and infections. It is packed with tannins, a skin-healing astringent which works to combat many skin ailments by reducing inflammation and cellular damage.

From chicken pox, to poison ivy, and acne, Witch Hazel is a healing powerhouse!

Today, Witch Hazel can be found in many different skincare products including our very own facial mist and here's why:

It's a natural acne fighter: Witch Hazel can reduce bacterial growth on the skin and speed healing time, while also reducing excess oil and sebum production, redness, irritation, and shrinking the look of pores.

It fights signs of aging: Witch Hazel naturally tightens the skin, protects collagen and skin elasticity, and reduces as well as heals scars, redness, discoloration, dryness, and puffiness around the eyes.

It can prevent damage from sun exposure: Witch Hazel is protective against skin cancer, melanoma, and other damage caused by UV light due to its polyphenols and tannin antioxidants.

Lets not forget the importance of source. Many companies distill witch hazel from alcohol, which can make the application and absorption in the skin drying and harsh. Limiting the incredible benefits of this gorgeous flower.

Incredible right?! And these are truly just a few of the amazing benefits Witch Hazel has to offer as a natural remedy!
