Centella Asiatica Extract
CAS No. 57-55-6; 7732-18-5, 84696-21-9

Centella Asiatica (also known as gotu kola and Indian pennywort) is a perennial creeping plant which grows around the Indian ocean. Traditionally used in the management of dermatological conditions in its native area, it is used to support faster healing of small wounds, scratches and superficial burns, as well as an anti-inflammatory for eczema, minor itching and insect bites.

Its active constituents are pentacyclic triterpenoids which have regulating and activating functions, acting on the collagen present in many organs. In skin, the major components are collagens type I and II. Skin aging is related mainly to a decrease in type I collagen levels, which also plays a major role in wound healing. Studies have shown that the main constituents of Centella asiatica (Asiatic acid, madecassic acid, and asiaticoside) increase collagen synthesis. In addition to stimulating the synthesis of collagen, it also improves tensile strength of the skin.

This is a cosmetic raw material and is meant for external use only in cosmetic formulations.  As with all of our materials, it should not be taken internally.

Our Customers Say...
I am new to lotion making and was having a hard time figuring out how to use Liquid Germall Plus at the right percentages. I called Jen and she gave me the most informative answer to my question that I've ever received from a company like this. I am very pleased with Lotioncrafter and I will definitely be a return customer.
JaLeigha Williams, (I Am Lov'leigh)

Fastest and nicest service ever. Ordered the Shea nilotica yesterday and Jen wasn't kidding. This is some luxurious shea. Very rich and creamy, not grainy at all and hardly a scent compared to others I've used. Impressed that the delivery made it in a day and of the care and time taken to change and fix my order....the morning of! The measuring tools were just a bonus for a professional first purchase experience, thank you so much.

I have been ordering from your company for some time now. I absolutely love the quality and prices of your products. Plus, you don't sacrifice on quality. I am very happy to count myself as one of your customers and I will be ordering from you for years to come. Thank you so much Lotioncrafter!!
