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 received my first order and was SO suprised to find your "thank you" gift enclosed.

You folks know your stuff. Yes, I really needed everything you sent in that "thank you" package.

It's those small thoughtful things and your fair-priced products that will keep me coming back for more. :-)

Jayne Morley

I'm exploring making lotions, creams, & balms to add to my line of CP soaps. Lotioncrafter is the best! Nice selection of ingredients and tools, very good prices, smaller quantities available for my test batches, excellent service. And love the customer reward points too!
Eileen

Best customer service! I forgot an item and they easily updated my order. As a bonus, they got my products into a smaller shipping box and saved me a nice chunk of money. Who would of thought a retailer would go to the trouble of saving their customer money?!? Definitely my new go-to supplier. Honesty and excellent customer service are much appreciated.
