Centella Asiatica: One of the main ingredients in both our Medica Rejuv/Anti Aging Serum and MedicaDerm/ Dermis Repair Cream.
Is an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant boosting ingredient. Its wound healing and skin repair properties are derived from the chemicals found in Centella Asiatica known as triterpenoids, which promote the production of fibroblasts which in turn are responsible for synthesizing collagen. It increases the blood supply to the skin and as such improves the venal system and assists in connective tissue growth. This property of enhancing the blood supply to the skin assists the skin's ability to absorb nutrients and other antioxidants found in the anti aging formula of our serums. It also has a toning and firming effect and helps prevent the formation of scars when used to heal minor skin burns and wounds. These properties alone make Centella Asiatica one of the better anti aging and skin repair ingredients and would be highly recommended for those suffering from any form of skin inflammation such as rosacea, acne, eczema or psoriasis.
