In Korean skin care

Centella asiatica, also abbreviated as Cica, is a tropical medicinal plant from the Apiaceae family originating in Southeast Asian countries such as India, Sri Lanka, China, Indonesia and Malaysia as well as South Africa and Madagascar. This plant grows wild in moist, shady places and can often be seen along riverbanks, streams, ponds and irrigated fields. The other common names of the plant are Asiatic Pennywort, Indian Pennywort, Thick-leaved Pennywort and Gotu Kola. It is one of the most important herbs for treating skin problems, for healing wounds and for revitalizing nerves and brain cells.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CENTELLA ASIATICA (ALSO POPULARLY CALLED CICA)

The anti-inflammatory properties increase hydration and help soothe and repair dry, red, irritated skin. Therefore, it is recommended for the treatment of various skin diseases, especially those with symptoms such as redness and roughness (psoriasis and eczema). The effects come from the plant's chemical composition of madecassoside and asiaticoside, both known for their soothing and healing properties.

A number of studies show that this medicinal herb has anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive properties due to remarkable amounts of asiaticoside, madecassoside and madecassic acid which have been shown to increase collagen production, improve skin firmness and elasticity.

HOW TO USE CENTELLA ASIATICA?

You will find it in face wash (cleanser), toners, serums, essences and creams. For an extra soothing effect, products with Cica can be placed over the retinoid in the evening. Since retinoids can irritate the skin, cica in turn can prevent any irritation.

Known for its gentle and skin-friendly products that both nourish, soothe and hydrate the skin, Purito has a range of products with the star ingredient Centella Asiatica / Cica such as:
