OUR HYDROSOL WATER IS A REAL WITCH HAZEL DISTILLATE, NOT an artificially reconstituted extract.
A STAND ALONE botanical astringent and toner made from real witch hazel plant that tones the skin, balances PH, evens skin tone and reduces redness and puffiness! With high concentrations of tannins, witch hazel is a natural astringent removing excess oil from skin and shrinking pores. Regular use of witch hazel may further reduce blemishes, especially black heads, which result from sebum build-up in pores.
PERFECT for use as the liquid base in clay masks, lotions, serums and other cosmetic formulations where additional skin benefits are desired. Witch hazel tightens skin and reduces puffiness making it ideal for eye products! 4% Leucidal® SF Complete, a natural preservative, has been added to protect the hydrosol from microbial growth when used as a stand alone toner and when used in formulations.
When using this product as a whole or partial water replacement in formulations, additional preservative may or may not be needed, depending on the formulation, total preservative concentration, and if the preservative came into contact with heat. For maximum preservation benefit, keep heat below 70 Celcius and within the pH of 3-8 when using this product in formulations. CAUTION! DO NOT USE THIS HYDROSOL IN L-ASCORBIC ACID (THE ACIDIC VITAMIN C) SERUMS! There is a small amount of naturally occurring benzoic acid in this witch hazel hydrosol that can react with with the ascorbic acid and form benzene.
Packaged in dark amber with a convenient flip top cap.
