Ingredient Spotlight: Madecassoside

Have you ever heard of madecassoside? It's a powerhouse skincare ingredient that's been getting a lot of attention lately, and we're here to tell you why!

Madecassoside is an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory ingredient that's becoming more and more popular in skincare products. It's a superstar component of Centella Asiatica, the popular ingredient hyped for its amazing soothing and wound healing properties. It's what makes it such a great choice for sensitive skin!  
In addition, Madecassoside is also rich in amino acids, beta carotene, fatty acids, and phytochemicals; these ingredients all contribute to its ability to do great things for your skin! It's an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory ingredient, which means that it'll help reduce free radicals and inhibit inflammation in your skin. You can use it as often as necessary because it's gentle enough for twice-daily use.

Its antioxidant properties are enhanced when paired with vitamin C (which also helps with acne), so if you're looking for something extra soothing or hydrating, consider combining madecassoside with hyaluronic acid or another topical vitamin C product.

And remember: there are no known ingredients that interact negatively with madecassoside. In fact, it can even be paired with many potentially-irritating actives due to its soothing effects, which is probably why it's one of the most hyped ingredients of 2022.
