Water & Centella Asiatica (Gotu Kola) Extract
Traditionally found in the marshy areas of Southeast Asia and Australia, and known in traditional Indian medicine as “Tiger’s Grass,” this herb has been utilized as a topical and internal wound healer for centuries. Containing a mixture of terpenoid glycosides, centella asiatica has been known to heal unsightly skin lesions by promoting a rapid thickening of the skin and increasing blood supply to the connective tissue. Centella Asiatica BT works as an anti-aging treatment by stimulating Collagen I and III biosynthesis and Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) synthesis, resulting in improved skin firmness, elasticity, and wrinkle reduction.
Centella Asiatica BT is developed with BCR’s unique extraction technology that uses plant derived enzymes to simplify complex botanical actives so they are more easily absorbed by the skin. Thus, saving the skin energy to be used for cellular communication and self-repair for overall wellness. Highly effective proprietary enzymes allow for the use of minimal plant material with maximum yield of beneficial nutrients. As such, BCR’s BioTransformed extracts are sustainable, eco-friendly and cost effective.
In vivo double-blind study of 20 subjects applying twice daily for 28 days shows significant skin improvement with Centella Asiatica BT active cream over the control base cream.
In vitro testing results show a drastic increase in fibroblast collagen synthesis with Centella Asiatica BT compared to the untreated extract.
