Willow Bark: Your Breakouts *Natural* BFF
So, you've joined the natural side. We're so happy that you're here
Obtained from the bark of the Willow tree, willow bark extract has been used to soothe irritated skin for centuries. Although, there are various types of Willow tree, White Willow tree is typically used in skincare products.
The bark contains Salicin, from which salicylic acid is derived—this versatile ingredient is both anti-inflammatory and antibacterial, clearing pores and alleviating acne and irritation. In skin care, salicin alleviates acne and irritation and is suitable for most skin types.
Willow bark is known as natural salicylic acid because of how effective it can be on cleaning out pores, calming acne inflammation, and reducing the appearance of fine lines + wrinkles.
Willow bark also contains keratolytic properties - which breaks down dead skin cells and gently exfoliates the skin by dissolving impurities within the pores. This property aids in cell regeneration, allowing for a more refreshed complexion.
Willow bark is also high in natural tannins and polyphenols which have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that help your diminish acne and reduce the appearance of fine lines for a smoother complexion. Tannins also help to reduce the appearance of large pores, control excess oil and maintain a firm, youthful look. Polyphenols are said to help alleviate conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, and rosacea through its anti-bacterial properties.
