Thanks to its astringent, purifying and soothing properties, witch hazel hydrosol helps to care for oily, blemished and redness-prone skin.

What is witch hazel?

Witch hazel is a shrub native to North America, belonging to the Hamamelidaceae family. The flowers of the witch hazel are characterised by their 4 bright yellow ribbon-shaped petals. It is the leaves of the shrub that are harvested before they turn brown to be used in various skincare treatments.

Witch hazel is incorporated into skincare due to its purifying, astringent, and soothing properties. Witch hazel hydrosol is suitable for all skin types, particularly combination to oily skin, acne-prone skin, and skin prone to irritation and redness. Witch hazel hydrosol is obtained by distilling witch hazel leaves. This process allows the properties of the plant to be transferred into the steam. The hydrosol is less concentrated in active ingredients than the essential oil, but allows for the benefits of all the properties of the used plant to be obtained.

Witch hazel hydrosol for oily skin.

Oily skin is characterised by an overproduction of sebum, which is responsible for the skin's shiny appearance throughout the day and the formation of spots. Indeed, sebum and impurities clog the pores, promoting the appearance of blackheads. Oily skin is also characterised by enlarged pores. Thanks to its astringent properties, witch hazel hydrosol is the ally of oily and blemished skin. It purifies the skin and tightens the pores for an even complexion. Thanks to the astringent action of witch hazel, the pores are less visible.

Witch hazel hydrosol for skin prone to irritation and redness.

There are numerous factors that cause skin irritations and redness, such as exposure to the sun, pollution, or cold weather. However, it is important to note that the skin becomes more sensitive if there is a disruption to the natural protective barrier. In this case, it is essential to protect it from external aggressions by adopting the right skincare routine.

Thanks to its soothing properties, witch hazel hydrosol is recommended for caring for skin prone to irritation and redness. It calms redness and reduces irritation. It is also used to alleviate sunburns.

Our witch hazel hydrosol contains 99.4% naturally sourced ingredients. Furthermore, the witch hazel used in its production comes from organic farming. Store the hydrosol away from light and heat. Immediately replace the lid after each use.

To reap the benefits of witch hazel hydrosol, thoroughly cleanse your entire face. Apply the hydrosol using a cotton pad once your skin is clean and dry. Use the witch hazel hydrosol before your serum or face cream. This treatment is suitable for all skin types, but is recommended for calming redness and irritation in sensitive skin, or for tightening pores and purifying oily skin.
