(1) Healing Activity
The properties of Centella Asiatica have long been known in its native areas. In India for instance, it was used for a quicker healing of wounds. At the Cosmetic & Laser Medical Centre we often use Centella post laser treatment to reduce skin reaction and to accelerate healing time. Minor skin problems can often benefit from being treated with Centella extract-based products.
(2) Anti-inflammatory Activity
Centella is traditionally used as an anti-inflammatory treatment, particularly for eczema, but also for minor itchings and insect bites.
(3) Stimulation of Collagen Synthesis
Centella asciatica has been clinically proven to create an increase of collagen synthesis by fibroblasts. It is one of the most effective products that can be used during pregnancy to prevent stretch-mark formation. It is also used to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles – and restoring a youthful looking glow to the skin.
