Skincare Ingredient Facts – Willow Bark Extract
Willow Bark extract (Salix alba) s a featured ingredient in our Brightening Mask because it provides a brightening, skin lightening and general anti-aging benefit.
The main ingredient credited with benefits for the skin, and anti-aging is salicin, but other salicylates as well as polyphenols, and flavonoids are also thought to contribute to Willow Bark Extract’s proven antioxidant effects as well as reductions in the appearance of pigmentary irregularities and for maintaining your skin’s youthful appearance.
Willow Bark Extract has has a history going back thousands of years, being used orally and topically for its anti-inflammatory, antipyretic, and analgesic effects. Only recently have human and animal studies have been published that confirm what natural healers have observed all that time. Studies for back and joint pain as well as osteoarthritis have proven out the analgesic and anti-inflammatory benefits. In addition to skin care and rejuvenation, Willow Bark Extracts are also used in sports medicine, natural sports performance enhancement, and weight loss.
Mechanisms of action include down regulation of the inflammatory mediators tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-a) and nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-kB), and inhibition of COX-2 and NF-κB pro-inflammatorily activated monocytes.
