Centella asiatica is the dry whole grass of Centella asiatica, which has a long application history and rich resources. Modern medical research shows that Centella asiatica has physiological effects such as anti-depression, promotion of wound healing, treatment of scars, anti-tumor, anti-stomach ulcer, antibacterial, and antioxidant.
The active ingredients in Centella asiatica are mainly saponins and sapogenins, including asiaticoside, madecassoside, asiatic acid and madecassolic acid.
Asiatic acid is an important pentacyclic triterpene acid compound in Centella asiatica, which has a wide range of biological activities, such as anti-tumor, improving cognition, anti-diabetic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, promoting wound healing, etc.
1. Remove scars
Centella asiatica extract can promote wound cell proliferation and collagen synthesis, and treatment of wounds with its extract results in faster epithelial tissue formation and faster wound healing.
2. Has anti-inflammatory repair
Centella asiatica is suitable for all skin types. It can heal damaged skin, gradually relieve acne, and at the same time increase the skin's resistance, with anti-inflammatory, calming, and swelling effects.
3. Antioxidant effect
Centella asiatica also has good antioxidant properties, which can promote skin metabolism, help accelerate the formation of new cells, and resist free radicals formed by aging.
4. Promotes skin growth
It can promote skin growth, increase local leukocytes, increase the vascular network of connective tissue, increase mucus secretion, accelerate skin hyperplasia, and inhibit skin ulcers.
5. Tightens the skin
Centella asiatica can tighten the part where the epidermis and dermis are connected, make the skin soft, help to solve the phenomenon of skin sagging, make the skin smooth and elastic; promote the formation of collagen in the dermis, regenerate fibrin, and reconnect, It gives the skin a firm and smooth effect.
6. Nourishes and repairs the skin
Asiaticoside can change the ultrastructure of fibroblasts, inhibit the expression of proteins in them, greatly weaken the synthesis and secretion functions, reduce the proliferation ability of fibroblasts, and cause fibrosis (roughening) of the tissue skin.
7. Repair skin scars
By reducing the activity of scar material synthase and increasing the expression rate of protein that inhibits the synthesis of this enzyme, the effect of reducing scar hyperplasia can be achieved. In addition, asiaticoside can effectively accelerate the production of collagen, which plays an important role in the filling of subcutaneous cells. neglected support. And madecassic acid, madecassic acid, madecassoside and madecassoside B also play a significant role in inhibiting the proliferation of fibroblasts and promoting collagen expression in the process of wound repair.
8. Prevent gastric ulcer
Experiments have proved that Centella asiatica extract can resist the gastric mucosal damage caused by ethanol in mice by strengthening the self-blocking of the mucosa and reducing the damage of free radicals, and reduce the area of gastric ulcer caused by acidic substances, accompanied by the same period of gastric tissue marrow. Attenuation of peroxidase activity, proliferation of epithelial cells, angiogenesis, and growth of synthetic fibroblasts heal gastric ulcers.
Asiatic acid is also known as asiatic acid. The main functions of asiatic acid in cosmetics and skin care products are whitening and freckle removal, skin conditioning agent, and antioxidant. The risk factor is 1. It is relatively safe and can be used with confidence. Generally, it has no effect on pregnant women. Asiatic acid does not cause acne.
The main component of Centella asiatica has a promoting effect on the vitality of scar fibroblasts, so it has the effect of removing scars, and has a good polymerization effect with phospholipid substances, and has a more obvious effect on eliminating acne; It has inhibitory effect, plus antibacterial properties, and has a good effect of inhibiting body odor; it has a good promoting effect on hair growth, which is related to its promotion of cell vitality, and can be used as a hair growth product.
Madecassic acid is suitable for 8 types of skin: non-pigmented skin, oily skin, wrinkled skin, tolerance skin, pigmented skin, firm skin, dry skin, and sensitive skin.
