THE ESSENTIALS FACE CARE KIT — The Willow's Bark

Like its shrub-derived cousin witch hazel, willow bark is one of those natural beauty ingredients that has a whiff of 'old school' about it, synonymous with apothecary-style staples such as tea tree oil spot wands. But what makes the time-honoured beauty staple, willow bark, so good for our complexions? Rich in salicylic acid — a beta hydroxyl acid that exfoliates the skin — willow bark is a soothing anti-inflammatory and astringent. Centuries ago, it was used to alleviate headaches or as a topical antiseptic for wounds. As an exfoliant, it is gentle yet powerful, sloughing dead skin cells to reveal a brighter, rejuvenated complexion. Lather a coin-sized amount over the skin with water — expect a subtle cooling sensation — before rinsing and applying moisturiser. Specialists in natural plant and mineral-derived beauty REN target dry and rough skin with this gentle daily-use toner.

White Willow and Apple Cider Acne Facial Toner

Willow bark is utilized to treat lower back pain, osteoarthritis, headaches, bursitis and tendinitis, among other conditions. Indeed, willow bark extract boasts a potent combination of calming and cleansing properties that estheticians can use in a wide variety of treatments. Willow bark has keratolytic properties, meaning it breaks down dead skin cells and gently exfoliates by dissolving pore-clogging impurities. In addition, many products combine willow bark extract with an alpha hydroxy acid AHA exfoliant—say, glycolic or lactic acid—to reveal the newer, younger-looking cells underneath thicker, more sun-damaged skin.
Derived from the bark of the willow tree, Willow Bark Extract has been used for centuries to soothe irritated skin. Containing salicin—from which salicylic acid is derived—this versatile ingredient is both anti-inflammatory and antibacterial, clearing pores and alleviating acne and irritation. Although there are various types of willow trees, each with their own unique extracts, Willow Bark Extract used in skin care products is usually derived from white willow bark. As the nomenclature implies, white extract comes from the white willow tree salix alba , a medium- to large-sized perennial deciduous species.
