What is Witch Hazel and why should I use it on my skin?

What is witch hazel?

Witch Hazel, also known as Hamamelis virginiana, is a plant that was first used in medicine and decoctions for anti inflammatory / irritation purposes. Witch Hazel is a natural astringent, meaning it causes the skin cells and other body tissues to contract. This means that your pores close up as your skin tightens, pushing out any excess oils and dirt. It also reduces the chances of bacteria entering your skin to cause inflammation and irritation. In all of our products we use 100% pure witch hazel
