This mild astringent has many benefits for the skin, including relieving inflammation from acne, tightening pores, and cleansing the skin of excess oil. It works to hydrate, exfoliate, nourish, clarify, and revitalize skin. This elderberry astringent provides some of the same benefits as a toner; yet removes excess oil and traces of dirt from the skin without drying it out like a typical strong astringent; thereby making it a great product for all skin types.
About Our Ingredients
Aloe Vera, which is the main ingredient in this astringent, is effective in removing bacteria that causes certain types of acne. It helps to moisturize, soothe and hydrate the skin. As we age, the skin produces less collagen, allowing wrinkles and fine lines to form. Aloe Vera supports the production of collagen. It's really good for oily skin because the skin is able to easily absorb it, but dry skin can also benefit from using Aloe Vera on the skin too. Due to the anti-inflammatory effects of Aloe Vera, it can also help treat inflammatory forms of acne, such as pustules and nodules.
The Witch Hazel in this excess oil remover relieves inflammation, tightens pores, and cleanses the skin of excess oil which is helpful in preventing acne breakouts. According to healthline.com, one study suggested that using a product with as little as 10% of witch hazel could provide relief of sensitive or irritated facial skin.
The Rose Water in this acne preventing product reduces redness and naturally hydrates the skin. It also removes excess oils from the skin and sooths skin irritation.
This astringent is infused with Elderberry which has anti-aging and free radical fighting properties. Studies show that elderberries and elderflower, keep your skin radiant for longer periods. Furthermore, when used topically elderberry works as a natural detoxifying agent and helps to prevent distressing skin conditions like breakouts, boils, and scars. Ethanol is used to extract the medicinal properties of the elderberry. We soak our elderberries in ethanol for at least six months before adding the extract to our products. The ethanol acts as an astringent to help clean skin. It's also effective in killing microorganisms like bacteria, fungi and viruses.

Princess Mudd Info
"I use this astringent every day after washing my face. What I've noticed most about this product is how well my make-up goes on after using it. I've also noticed that my inevitable breakouts that seem to occur without fail once a month (during that time), don't last as long and are far less noticeable than they used to be. The bacterial acne that I used to experience doesn't happen at all anymore."
