The Magic of Madecassoside
Madecassoside is a popular plant-based skincare ingredient derived from the leaves of the Centella Asiatica plant. Centella has been used for over 2,000 years in India and beyond and is renowned for its healing and calming properties.
The main effects of Madecassoside are to reduce inflammation and heal the skin. The compound stimulates the production of collagen which firms up the skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Its anti-oxidant properties reduce the activity of Matrix Metalloproteins (MMPs) which play a part in breaking down the structure of the skin, helping to reduce inflammation.
The combination of soothing, anti-inflammatory and healing properties make Madecassoside a popular ingredient in the treatment of acne. By speeding up skin cell production this ingredient aids wound healing and skin damage.
