The forms of Witch Hazel that are most commonly used are Witch Hazel Distillate Water and Witch Hazel Extract. The uses, applications and benefits for both forms range from; topical skin usage as a toner, astringent, anti inflammatory and anti itch treatment, to being a fundamental ingredient in the formulation of various cosmetic products.

Our Witch Hazel is extracted in which parts of the plant are first dried and then placed in a solution comprised of water and alcohol to soak. This causes the medical components to be drawn out allowing them to infuse with the solution. The resulting combination is Witch Hazel Extract. A hydrosol, or distillate water, on the other hand, is yielded from a very different process. Its’ crystal clear colour allows for it to be the perfect addition to formulations without changing the appearance of the finished product.
