So what is it about this herb (which is also known for its healing powers)?

what does cica stand for?


The botanical plant Centella Asiatica, usually known as Cica, may be found growing in tropical swamps all across Asia. Due to the herb's ability to treat the skin, extracts of it have been utilised in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years.

As a result of wild tigers being observed rolling among the plants to help heal any combat scars they may have and to revitalise their skin, goods that contain cica may also carry the moniker "tiger grass" on the label. Because of its well-known healing, skin-soothing, antibacterial, and inflammatory characteristics, it is excellent for treating scars and skin disorders including eczema and psoriasis. Additionally, it is highly moisturising for dry skin types.

As a result of our busy and stressful lifestyle, the skin is often prone to getting unbalanced. Cica has ingredients that give your skin an enhanced look, reinforcing the skin's protective barrier and brightening your complexion. It can also be found in many moisturizers and CC cream products.

centella asiatica benefits for face?


Slows Down Ageing :

Centella Asiatica has a lot of antioxidants that work to combat free radicals brought on by pollution and UV radiation from the sun.

These free radicals harm the skin's protective barrier, causing uneven skin tone and other issues related to skin ageing. As skin ages, the lack of elasticity causes the skin to droop and take on a crepe-like appearance. Because cica increases blood flow and collagen formation, the face appears more firm and young with less lines and wrinkles.

Soothing Properties :

Soothing and healing, Centella Asiatica is an ancient herb that has been used for centuries in India, Japan, Korea and China to treat skin irritation and inflammation. This remarkable plant is rich in vitamins A, C, E and Pro-Vitamin B5 which are known to be beneficial for dry skin conditions.

Moisturising :

In addition to being rich in antioxidants, cica is also abundant with amino acids, fatty acids, and beta carotene, all of which offer the skin a wealth of nutrients, keeping it hydrated and replenishing the levels of water and oil in the skin's barrier.

Healing Properties :
Centella helps to support the skin’s natural barrier function while protecting against environmental damage. It is a natural anti-inflammatory and healing agent, containing “Madecassoside” which boosts antioxidant activity in the skin promoting faster healing of wounds and boosting blood circulation in the skin.
