Favoured by Native Americans, the plant has long been used to soothe sensitive or environmentally stressed skin. Finally, it seems contemporary science has caught up, with independent human and laboratory-based studies finding that Canadian Willowherb (Epilobium Angustifolium) Extract delivers a potent anti-inflammatory effect. Canadian Willowherb is an antioxidant delivering a potent anti-inflammatory effect and acts as a soothing agent, antioxidant and anti-acne agent. It soothes acne-prone skin and reduces erythema induced by chemicals and UV (within 30 minutes of use). Used in sebum regulation, acne-prone skin, soothing, anti-inflammatory and sensitive skin.
Provides fast relief from skin irritations. Canadian Willowherb Skin Care products are ideal for men’s care, sensitive skin, anti-acne, after-sun, and oral care.
If you are looking for skin care with Canadian Willowherb as a key ingredient you might also look in the product ingredient list for Epilobium angustifolium extract; Willowweed; Willowherb or Fireweed.
Demonstrating measurable anti-redness and anti-irritant action, the ingredient has an equivalent effect to that of topical Hydrocortisone 1%. So why not simply stick to using Hydrocortisone? Because, Canadian Willowherb is a nifty natural ingredient that avoids the dermal atrophy linked with topical steroid treatments, meaning you can altogether bypass skin distress.
DO NOT confuse Willowherb with WILLOW BARK. Willow Bark is a plant extract that contains salicin, a substance that when taken orally is converted by the digestive process to salicylic acid (beta hydroxy acid – BHA).
First Line of Defence
The scientific findings don’t end there. As a powerful antioxidant, Canadian Willowherb also prevents the cell damage otherwise inflicted by free radicals. Boasting greater oxyradical absorption than either the enzyme Superoxide Dismutase or L-Ascorbic Acid, this ingredient is gaining superstar status in botanical cosmeceuticals. For those clients suffering from confidence-debilitating acne, the ingredient’s antibacterial qualities work against Propionibacterium Acnes (p Acne), the bacteria responsible for the condition.
Long-neglected, Canadian Willowherb Extract is finally being celebrated in the skin care sector. A favourite ingredient in most of our Aspect and Aspect Dr products, from problem skin serums to the lactobotanical peels, at NASCENT Skin and Beauty Clinic now you can experience the benefits of this naturally occurring ingredient.
