Excellent choice against early aging

Centella Asiatica promotes collagen synthesis and mucoglycan secretion, both of which make it an excellent ingredient in anti-aging skin care products. Collagen is a protein that gives skin its structure and elasticity. As we age, the production of natural collagen in our skin slows down and collagen levels decline, which can lead to wrinkles and sagging skin. Centella Asiatica has been found to stimulate collagen synthesis, helping to improve skin firmness and elasticity, and adjusting the overall texture and tone of the skin. The secretion of mucosaccharide can promote skin hydration and increase skin elasticity, enhance the vitality of the underlying cells of the skin, maintain skin elasticity and firmness, and smooth the fine wrinkles of the face.
