Like many of our ingredients, witch hazel is one that continues to withstand the test of time despite innovation and trends. It’s been used for centuries, to be exact: first as a medicinal treatment before making its way into everyday beauty remedies.
Witch hazel toners are likely what you’re most familiar with—but it does more than naturally cleanse.
What is Witch Hazel?
Witch hazel is a botanical extract derived from the Hamamelis virginiana plant. It's most known for its powerful astringent, anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic properties (due to the high tannin content)—which is why witch hazel is incredibly effective for combination to oily, even acne-prone, skin.
Benefits of Witch Hazel
- Naturally cleanses & helps soothe skin
- Diminishes the look of redness
- Re-balances skin by controlling excess oil
- Helps minimize the appearance of pores
- Helps visibly de-puff & reduce swelling
KINLÒ Skincare Products with Witch Hazel
In Hydrating Golden Mist, witch hazel is used to help re-balance after a day in the sun. Any redness or discomfort is visibly soothed—and because our skin tends to get oily throughout the day, witch hazel also gives it that refreshing boost it needs.
Antiseptic properties help cleanse while controlling excess oil to prevent breakouts. Witch hazel’s presence in Hydrating Eye Cream is probably unexpected, but it plays a crucial role in reviving tired eyes. Here, witch hazel’s anti-inflammatory benefits are helpful in visibly reducing redness and puffiness. It’s like an immediate pick-me-up—plus, with a blend of nourishing oils to soften the look of dry lines, Hydrating Eye Cream is just as effective in the morning as it is at night, right before you settle in the evening.
