Witch Hazel Hydrosol
CAS #84696-19-5

Our Witch Hazel Hydrosol (aka Witch Hazel Distillate) is a product of the steam distillation of Witch Hazel leaves and stems.  It has a delicate herbaceous fragrance with subtle floral and fruity notes. Witch hazel Hydrosol contains between 5% to 12% tannins, flavonoids, and catechins, to act as anti-inflammatories, anti-oxidants, astringents. Hamamelitannin and hamamelose are strong anti-inflammatories and astringents, while proanthocynanins are potent anti-oxidants up to 20 times stronger than Vitamin C and 50 times more powerful than Vitamin E. Gallic acid, a flavonoid, is a good wound healer as well as anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant.

For all skin types, the proanthocyanins stabilize collagen and elastin and work as very good anti-oxidants, while the other constituents work as anti-inflammatories. It can be used in lotions, gels, and other treatments for cellulite or varicose veins to act as a venous constrictor that reduces tissue swelling while offering a cooling sensation. It can act to reduce swelling in eye care products, such as gels.

For oily hair and skin types, it’s an excellent inclusion at up to 20% in cleansers, toners, gels, and moisturizers to act as an astringent and anti-inflammatory that reduces redness.

Traditional uses include treatment of burns, hemorrhoids, eye irritation, bruises, and redness as well as deodorants and after shave products.

Wow, I can't say enough about my experiences with this company.
I have been happy with everything I've ordered and their pricing is very competitive but it is the customer service that sets Lotioncrafter apart from other companies.
Orders are processed and shipped quicker than any other company I've ordered from & each time I've received a refund for lower shipping costs before I even noticed!
Any questions I've had were answered right away & even received a phone call to explain things more personally.
Thank you so much for the great work!

I am so impressed my Lotion Crafters turn around for shipping orders, it's excellent. Everything is always safely packaged in a way that's easy to store. This is the type of supplier small businesses need.
Thank you.

Thanks also for the pipettes.

I would like to rave about the coustomer service. Quick run down: I bought LGPlus from somehwhere else I won't say I called that supplier and tried to find out if what I made was safe because for some reason started using it pass the usage rate. (Don't ask why I don't know?? Lol) notice I didnt want to know anything other than was it safe. Anyhow they couldnt help me at all...bummer So I called LC I was direct to Jenny at this point I'm bummed and ready to toss my creations. Not only did Jenny help me save my product she gave me a few option as to how to handle the situation definitely golden nuggets to hold on to. I recommend LC not only for their quality inventory (yes I've ordered and received) but also the customer service is awesome. Thank you again for your awesomeness!!
