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.

I love your new site - I thought I had gone to the wrong supplier :) Love your products and the information that you provide - keep up the great work!
Elynn

I've been bouncing around between your company and others for products like cyclomethicone, etc. You have won out for a number of reasons. I love everything about your company. One problem; I live in NY. And I'm so anxious to get my products. Nevertheless your shipments are received in a very timely fashion. Thanks for the sample of SheaNilotica. It's fabulous.

Carrie luna

I don't normally write reviews but had to in this case. The amazing processing service you have implemented is by far the fastest I've ever experienced. I ordered it midnight and received shipment notice the following morning at 930. Better yet, when I received it, the quality of the products were superb. Bar none, the shea butter is the best I've ever bought. Definitely a repeat customer.
