Centella Asiatica is a medicinal plant rich in saponins, phytosterols, mucilages and fatty acids. In cutaneous application, its extract has traditionally been used to heal wounds and stimulate venous circulation. Topical use promotes regeneration of the skin and mucous membranes, re-epithelialises and stimulates collagen production. This is why it is used in cosmetics that improve skin conditions such as residual marks after wounds and burns, eczema, scars and stretch marks. It is also used in cosmetic lines for regenerative and anti-ageing care and oral hygiene products.
As an ingredient in dietary supplements, it is used for its venotonic (venous return support) and anti-inflammatory action. It is not recommended for oral use during pregnancy and lactation. Nor is it recommended for children. If you have any doubts, always consult a healthcare professional.
