About madeccassoside:

Centella grows in tropical swampy areas.The stems are slender, creeping stolons, green to reddish-green in color, connecting plants to each other. It has long-stalked, green, rounded apices which have smooth texture with palmately netted veins. The leaves are borne on pericladial petioles, around 2 cm (0.79 in). The rootstock consists of rhizomes, growing vertically down. They are creamish in color and covered with root hairs.


Asiaticoside is a triterpene glycoside from the plant Centella asiatica, commonly used in wound healing. This activity is a result of stimulation of collagen and glycosaminoglycan synthesis. This glycoside was also found to have activity against herpes simplex virus 1 and 2 and mycobacterium tuberculosis. Neuroprotectant.

2- Inducing diuresis and reducing edema.

3- Brain refreshing

4- It has the function of nourishing, diminish inflammation, heal wounds or ulcers, diuresis purge and calming.

5- Can also treat leprosy, ulcer.

6- Have wave action to blood purification and immunity.

7- A very good Nerve tonic, could improve memory, reduce mental fatigue;

8- Reduce blood press, treat liver disease.


Cosmetic Function

1.Could tightening the connection part of the epidermal and dermal, can make the skin soft, help to improve cutis laxa phenomenon, make skin smooth and willowy.

2.Help to promote the formation of collagen in the dermal layer, make fibrin regeneration, to eliminate fundamentally

 the mother skin lines, make the skin to achieve the compact and smooth effect.

3.Heal damaged tissue and tight skin, prevent hygrodermia, detumescence detoxification and remove abscess.
