At the serum step of your routine, dispense an appropriate amount evenly over face, avoiding the eye and lip areas. Pat gently to aid absorption. Continue with your moisturiser step. Can be used in both the AM and the PM.
Why we like it
This is a single ingredient, no fuss fully focused ampoule made of 100% centella asiatic extract. Centella Asiatica – or gotu kola – has been used in folk medicine for hundreds of years. It’s traditionally used to improve small wounds, burns and scratches and it’s also a well known anti-inflammatory agent for eczema.
Recently science has taken an interest in Gotu Kola as well and it turns out it really has many active compounds with several benefits. Just for hard-core geeks, the main biologically active compounds are pentacyclic triterpenoid saponins called asiaticoside, madecassoside, asiatic and madecassic acid (also called centellosides).
