The Benefits of Gotu Kola in Skincare

Gotu Kola (Centella Asiatica) is a plant that grows in wetland areas of Asia, South Africa and the South Pacific. It is a spade shaped leafy plant that offers a variety of benefits to the skin and is rich in beta carotene, fatty acids and amino acids. It is high in compounds which aid in soothing inflammation as well as calming of skin, helps stimulate the production of collagen and improves circulation while encouraging new skin cell growth and skin strengthening. 

Providing a wide range of anti aging benefits, the plant contains chemicals called triterpenoid saponins that directly support the healing process of the skin by using antioxidants to strengthen its barrier and increase the blood flow directly to the area. It has traditionally been used to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, aid skin conditions such as psoriasis and minor burns, and promotes skin recovery and healing.

Gotu Kola is a wonder-plant that offers a variety of benefits to skin and is rich in amino acids, fatty acids, and beta carotene. Find it in our Na Pali Pure Anti-Aging Serum.
