Nettle: The Gentle Giant

Nettle: The Gentle Giant

I like to call Nettle the "Gentle Giant." Yes, we must handle it with care, but it has so much to offer to the skin: it helps with acne-prone skin, soothes inflammatory skin conditions, and due to its astringent properties, it makes pores appear smaller. We know that thistle is rich in many minerals, especially iron, magnesium, and zinc. These are all essential nutrients for the skin and hair. Zinc has anti-inflammatory properties, making it an excellent ingredient for skincare targeting eczema, acne, and rosacea. Magnesium calms sensitive skin and reduces damage caused by free radicals in cells, making it an exceptional anti-aging nutrient for mature skin. Iron reduces dark spots and gives the skin a healthy glow, while in hair care, it reduces hair loss.

In our experiment, we wanted to see if we could extract these nutrients, so we selected the quantity of these trace elements in the base we used before thistle extraction and 5 weeks later after extracting the plant.

Check the tables to see how the quantity of these 3 nutrients has increased after completing the thistle extraction.

To all of you who use various skincare products: DO YOU KNOW what ingredients are in your products? These nourish your body's largest organ: your precious skin.

With fragrant 🌸 love,
