Witch Hazel Distillate is a medicinal tincture created from the leaves, flowers and bark of the hamamelis tree, also known as Witch Hazel Shrub. Witch Hazel has wonderful astringent properties due to the high levels of natural tannins found within it. These natural astringent properties help to tone the skin, removing excess dirt and oil and tightening the pores.
Witch hazel also contains procyanadins, resin, and flavonoids, all of which add to its soothing, anti-inflammatory properties. This is an excellent addition to facial toners, aftershave treatments, cleansers and to aid in the relief of bruises, sore muscles and insect stings.
