Witch Hazel Hydrosol
CAS #84696-19-5

Our Witch Hazel Hydrosol (aka Witch Hazel Distillate) is a product of the steam distillation of Witch Hazel leaves and stems.  It has a delicate herbaceous fragrance with subtle floral and fruity notes. Witch hazel Hydrosol contains between 5% to 12% tannins, flavonoids, and catechins, to act as anti-inflammatories, anti-oxidants, astringents. Hamamelitannin and hamamelose are strong anti-inflammatories and astringents, while proanthocynanins are potent anti-oxidants up to 20 times stronger than Vitamin C and 50 times more powerful than Vitamin E. Gallic acid, a flavonoid, is a good wound healer as well as anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant.

For all skin types, the proanthocyanins stabilize collagen and elastin and work as very good anti-oxidants, while the other constituents work as anti-inflammatories. It can be used in lotions, gels, and other treatments for cellulite or varicose veins to act as a venous constrictor that reduces tissue swelling while offering a cooling sensation. It can act to reduce swelling in eye care products, such as gels.

For oily hair and skin types, it’s an excellent inclusion at up to 20% in cleansers, toners, gels, and moisturizers to act as an astringent and anti-inflammatory that reduces redness.

Traditional uses include treatment of burns, hemorrhoids, eye irritation, bruises, and redness as well as deodorants and after shave products.

Fastest and nicest service ever. Ordered the Shea nilotica yesterday and Jen wasn't kidding. This is some luxurious shea. Very rich and creamy, not grainy at all and hardly a scent compared to others I've used. Impressed that the delivery made it in a day and of the care and time taken to change and fix my order....the morning of! The measuring tools were just a bonus for a professional first purchase experience, thank you so much.
