Dear Customer,

Due to the rising costs of administering small orders, we are instituting a policy for minimum orders of $100, in our efforts to keep costs to as low as possible and offer the best wholesale pricing in the industry.

For orders less than $100, a small order administration fee of $20 will apply. This policy will be effective February 3rd, 2014. We truly regret any inconvenience that this might cause.

Kind Regards,

Average Product Rating: 4.9 / 5 (Based on 17 Customer Reviews)

The power of the Witch Hazel plant without alcohol

INCI: Hammamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Water

Extraction Method: Distillation

Shelf Life: 3 Years

Country of Origin: USA

Alcohol Free Witch Hazel Distillates (or Witch Hazel extracts) are clear, colorless botanical extracts prepared from the recently cut and partially dried, dormant twigs of the Hamamelis virginiana Linné plant. These distillates offer a variety of benefits for skin and personal care applications.
Alcohol Free Distillates are particularly advantageous for applications that require the soothing natural astringent properties of Witch Hazel, and there are instances where the use of alcohol is not appropriate.

Such formulations may include those with constraints in:
Processing parameters – high surfactant, multi-phase, or high temperature products
Product performance – foaming products, body washes, mousses, creams
Marketing claims – alcohol free, “sting free,” and sensitive skin formulations

The most popular uses are for products where irritation or skin feel is of primary concern. Many customers specify distillates for treatment products including, anti-irritant products for sun care, wound care, children’s “sting free” products and other products where skin sensitization is an issue.

Sensitive Skin Formulations – Eye Creams/Gels/Serums, Shaving Creams
Alcohol Free Formulations – Toners, Cleansers
Treatment Products – Wound Care, Sun Care, Eye Care

A great witch hazel without the usual alcohol base! I incorporate it into just about everything now from pet deodorant, toner to aftershave products. It seems to be non stinging and non drying. The smell is not unpleasant; surprisingly fresh in fact and is masked by even floral water...with neroli and aloe vera it is a fabulous toner!

I have used Witch Hazel since I was 13 years old. Mum told me generations of women in our family have used it. At 63, the lines on my face and neck are minimal. I am thrilled to have found it here today, certainly will be ordering as it is becoming more and more difficult to find it. The smell lasts only a short time and so worth the results!!! I use it straight no additives needed to get fabulous results. Off to place my order. Also glad to know where my on going source is. Thanks! PS...keep it in the refrigerator during summer months for a great cool down on hot days.

I brought this with me on vacation, used it neat to relieve a bad sunburn, and didn't peel whatsoever afterwards - unheard of for me! I also use it daily as a facial toner and find it to be very soothing and refreshing.

This product is a must when making a toner for normal to oily skin. The alcohol free is a plus!

I mixed this with aloe vera juice to make a face toner. To be honest, the smell of witch hazel was awful at first. It smells like rancid mesona jelly. But after mixing, the smell is more tolerable. But it seems like no one have mentioned the smell before, so maybe it's just me.

Bought this item along with a few others and was amazed at how quickly I got them!!! Love NDA! I love this witch hazel.. I use it as a toner and for anyone who wears false eyelashes, you can use them on the strip of the lashes and it helps you peel off the glue!!!! That way you don't tear your lashes! So not natural I know but sometimes a girl wants to spice things up!!!!!

I found it hard to find witch hazel that was alcohol free, when I saw this is available I knew I had to order it! I use it for a toner and as an aftershave for my husband (using WH and lemon/grapefruit essential oil) we both love it as it does not make your skin feel tight or dried out! Love this product and you can't beat the price!

I bought this because my intention was to make an after shave "splash". Of course I used my husband as my guinea pig and he was very happy with the results; he said his skin didn't feel tight and dry. I mixed this with Lavender, Patchouli and Peppermint and now he won't use anything else. I will continue to purchase this version of Witch hazel and the price is amazing! Thanks ND
