|Willow trees and shrubs are
a familiar, prevalent sight throughout North America,
and boast approximately 350 species worldwide. But its
evolution to cosmetic ingredient stems largely from
the medicinal properties of its bark. Salicin is an
extract of willow bark, first mentioned in ancient texts
and later developed by 19th century scientists into
what is known as modern-day aspirin.
Its similarities to aspirin's anti-inflammatory powers
are the reason you'll find Salix alba bark
extract featured in DHC Q10 Milk and DHC Q10 Water Mist.
These age-defying toners work as an astringent to soothe
the skin, helping to cool and tone your complexion. You'll
love the revitalizing effect of willow bark extract so much,
it just might inspire you to hug a tree.
