Tiger grass, aka Centella Asiatica is a leafy plant from Southeast Asia that has been widely used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries for healing and wound care. It has a very high content of triterpenoids and other active fractions which work together to reveal extraordinary skin healing powers.
Fun fact: The name Tiger Grass comes from legends of tigers rolling in the plant after fighting to help heal their wounds!
In skincare, Centella Asiatica has become a very popular soothing ingredient in Cica creams, but the benefits don’t just stop at soothing...
Due to the triterpenoids, Tiger Grass is a very multifunctional active and has been shown to:
- Stimulate collagen and elastin biosynthesis to firm and regenerate.
- Reduce any inflammation and therefore scale down redness and itching.
- Protect skin against free radicals.
- Have a brightening effect and increase skin luminosity.
- Strengthen skin barrier and reduce water loss to improve skin hydration.
