Why everyone is obsessed with Gotu Kola

Centella Asiatica also known as Gotu Kola is native to India and many parts of Asia for thousands of years. We stumbled upon this ingredient while doing our research to add brightening and soothing ingredients to our Chocolate & Licorice Face Mask When we read up extensively on it, we were amazed by its benefits and simple HAD TO include it in our product.

It is extremely rich in anti-oxidants thanks to polyphenols, flavonoid, beta-carotene, and vitamin C. It boasts many rejuvenating compounds such as triternene saponins and phytonutrients that support compromised skin barrier. It also soothes irritated and inflamed skin with regular use. The herb works on skin firming and reducing sun damage. Talk about being an over-achiever!

What skin types benefit from Gotu Kola?

Well, its good for ALL SKIN TYPES, yes!

Gotu Kola is a favourite for sensitive skin, helping to visibly promote a calm and balanced complexion.

This wonderful ingredient works best as an astringent and moisture regulator as it travels deep into the skin to hydrate, soothe, and nourish the skin cells. This makes it great for both dry & oily skin types.

Acne prone skin seem to love it too thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties that treat inflamed acne lesions. Its antibacterial and antioxidant properties curb bacterial proliferation in your pores and initiate quick wound healing.

After learning more about this ingredient, we hope we have inspired you to choose more skincare with Gotu Kola.

We also use it in a potent form in our Face Oils, giving you the purest form of Centella Asiatica there is... Ah we love it!!!
