Lemongrass extract is derived from the leaves of the Cymbopogan citratus plant and is known for its bright lemon scent and many skincare benefits. Similar to lemons, it is rich in vitamin C and B and contains brightening properties, keeping your skin glowing from within. It also contains antibacterial and antiseptic properties, helping to kill bacteria causing acne as well as effectively reducing overproduction of natural oils on the skin. Lemongrass extracts’ natural astringent qualities make it the ideal scent of choice for our astringent. Since lemongrass extract is a natural yet potent astringent and antiseptic, those who don’t have sensitive skin might benefit from using this astringent over our toners. Our astringent also contains extracts like orange peel, blackberry and nettle. These powerful antioxidant agents work at the cellular level to keep skin youthful and slow down damage from free radicals. These extracts add to the astringent properties already present in witch hazel and lemongrass extract and provide a multitude of benefits for oily or acne prone skin that needs a little extra TLC.
