Originally from India and native to humid areas, centella asiatica, also known as Gotu Kola, is a powerful herb with thin stems and long leaves. Its small size and delicate appearance hide a healing plant that is very popular in Asia.
For us, the combination of this and our beloved rosehip was the perfect union to achieve a top formula which would treat the skin with the great care and pampering that our products required. That’s why we couldn’t resist its power.
It has been used in traditional medicine for over 3,000 years and has healing, repairing, regenerating and firming properties in skin care. It is known for its effective treatment of haemorrhoids, sprains, dermatitis and cellulite.
There is now scientific evidence that centella asiatica boosts the synthesis of collagen and skin proteins, improving its appearance and preventing wrinkles and stretch marks.
