White Willowbark's main active ingredient, salicin, was identified and resulted in the creation of the pain killer acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) years later. It's a natural salicylic acid which is found in many commercial acne treatments.White Willow Bark Extract is used to treat acne, control sebum, as an astringent and as an exfoliant. White Willow Bark Extract is also believed to be an effective anti-bacterial agent.
Zinc facilitates cell death, which is a natural part of your skin renewing itself. If it is delayed, as in the case of zinc deficiency, skin cells stick together instead of dying and sloughing off like they should, which leads to clogged pores. Zinc kills acne causing bacteria, reduces inflammatory response to bacteria when it invades a blocked pore which can cause severe irritation and reduces keratin (a tough protein that binds skin cells together. Too much keratin prevents cells from separating and leads to blocked pores, as is the case in acne. By reducing keratin zinc helps to keep skin pores open). Zinc is a DHT blocker, meaning it reduces the effect hormones have on the skin (excess sebum production). Zinc is also a powerful antioxidant.
Calendula is said to have antioxidant, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and regenerating properties, and has soothing and skin softening properties.
Bergamot is a natural disinfectant. This antibacterial action makes the oil great for those with acne, as it helps to kill the bacteria on the skin before it can react to create blackheads and pimples. Bergamot has an added property of helping to control excess oil production in the skin, attacking acne from two sides. Bergamot is also an antiseptic, meaning that it encourages wound healing and skin regeneration. If you have old acne scars, this oil can help the skin heal faster. Even better, it can help prevent new scars and fade old ones. In fact, Bergamot is a reputed treatment for scars and stretch marks, as it helps regulate the distribution of skin’s natural pigment—melanin—while evening out skin tone.
Rose Water helps to maintain your skin's pH balance. The antioxidant properties of roses help to strengthen skin cells and regenerate skin tissues. It also helps to revitalize aging skin and keeps fine lines and wrinkles at bay.
Aloe Vera has excellent moisturizing properties and aids with the re-hydration of dry chapped skin and can be used to treat skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and sun burn. Good choice for sensitive skin.
