Ingredient Spotlight: centella asiatica extract
An extract primarily known for its soothing and healing properties, you may also see its active components asiaticoside, centelloside, madecassoside, asiatic acid, or madecassic acid listed in the ingredient lists instead. In addition to its soothing and healing properties, studies also show that at 5% centella asiatica extract can increase the skin’s moisture level and reduce transepidermal water loss (source).
Studies also show that madecassoside can reverse the signs of sun damage when used with vitamin c (source).
