Witch hazel is considered to be a potent astringent due to the high level of tannins in the leaves. These help tighten skin proteins, which can reduce pore size, lock in moisture and form a protective covering to help promote skin healing.

It has been shown to actively reduce bacteria and inflammation on the surface of the skin, reducing free radicals and supports anti-ageing.
