Witch Hazel Extract
Witch Hazel Extract is a clear distillate prepared from recently cut and partially dried twigs of Hamamelis virginiana, containing natural oils and 14% alcohol. It is a natural astringent with antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal properties. It is a useful ingredient in cosmetic and medicinal preparations, including deodorants, after-shave lotions, cloth wipes, soaps, creams, and other products.
The bark and leaves are a powerful astringent and topical vascular and skin tonic, often used in aftershave and lotions for insect bites. Witch-hazel is often the active ingredient in hemorrhoid medications.
