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 Linn 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.
Applications: • Sensitive Skin Formulations: Eye Creams/Gels/Serums, Shaving Creams • Alcohol Free Formulations: Toners, Cleansers • Treatment Products: Wound Care, Sun Care, Eye Care

Rating: I was so thrilled to find this product! As much as I wanted to, I couldn't use witch hazel on my face as it was too drying for my mature skin. So happy to be able to add witch hazel now, without the drying side effects. A fair price, too.

Rating: Second time ordering witch hazel and it's amazing. Great price! Perfect for Maskne sprays.
Rating: Excellent product! My granddaughter plays hockey and where her helmet presses on her face, she gets acne...badly. I use this brand of witch hazel, distilled water and tea tree essential oil. This mixture clears it up very quickly.
Rating: I found this to work good as a spray deodorant mixed with EOs, however I think the version with alcohol will work better due to the drying component it would probably have over this one, which leaves a damp feel. Too bad my skin is too sensitive for me to want to try it. Otherwise, this stuff is superb in my clay masks and as a toner!
Rating: Fabulous price! This is a must have for me, as I use it to make rosewater. I will be purchasing again and again! Thank you!

Rating: High quality at a reasonable price. I use this in an acne cream I make for my son as well as other home made products. Will definitely be purchasing this time and again! Thank you NDA.

Rating: 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!

Rating: 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.
Rating: Great addition to my toners, and mosquito repellents. Keeps my skin from drying out, and the bugs away!

Rating: 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.
Rating: This product is a must when making a toner for normal to oily skin. The alcohol free is a plus!
By:Manon, Rawdon, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 07-Jun-2011
Rating: 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.

Rating: 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!!!!!
Rating: 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!

Rating: Excellent Price! Works great in my products! I love the fact that it is alcohol free! Thank you!!!

Rating: 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
