Hammamelis Virginiana (Witch hazel): Witch hazel is an astringent liquid, distilled from the dried leaves, bark, and partially dormant twigs of witch hazel plants.
Rich in tannins, a natural plant compound with powerful antioxidant properties that can help protect your skin against damage when applied topically, it may help offer sunburn relief and may improve acne prone skin and razor burn.
One animal study found that tannins can act as a barrier, helping to prevent inflammation-causing substances from entering your skin cells .
Glycerin (vegetable): Vegetable glycerin, also known as glycerol or glycerine, is a clear, viscous alcohol, a liquid humectant, typically made from plant sugars.
Vegetable glycerin is a popular skincare treatment because of its moisturizing properties and powers. Research shows that applying glycerin to your skin may gradually improve its smoothness and suppleness. In fact, using creams containing glycerin, (like KAVANA's PHYTO-5 Face Cream), may help increase skin hydration in as few as 10 days. (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/7906448/).
Vegetable glycerin may lead to better skin health, by helping sooth skin irritation, protect against infection and promote wound healing. Studies show that applying glycerin-containing products may protect your skin against irritants and microbes, as well as soothe inflamed or wounded skin.
Polysorbate 20: In its original form, polysorbate is a harmless sorbitol, which is a sugar alcohol. Ethoxylated / treated with 20 parts of ethylene oxide, it thus gets the name Polysorbate 20. The result is an ingredient used as an emulsifier to help mix oil and water.
