ATOMCARE™ Witchazel Extract

The witch hazel, also known as the winterbloom, is a flowering shrub that originally belongs to North-America, but is now grown in Europe as well, given its rejuvenating properties. Witch hazel is popular for its medicinal and healing properties. Witch Hazel works like an anti-inflammatory agent and helps reduce swelling in the tissues of the skin. Witch hazel extract is an astringent and astringent substances tend to dry out the skin and reduce the size of the skin pores. Reduced skin pores mean less space for debris to accumulate. Witch hazel works magic for people with skin conditions like psoriasis or eczema. The anti-inflammatory properties of witch hazel bring down the redness, swelling and the stinging sensation of the skin associated with these disorders. People with skin conditions like psoriasis often have broken scalp, which gives a really bad burning sensation. Witch hazel extract can accelerate the healing process of the broken scalp and help repair the wounds, reducing the irritation.
