Witch Hazel is an alcoholic extract from the leaves, flowers and bark of the hamamelis tree. It contains a mixture of 85-86 % aqueous witch hazel extract and 14-15 % ethyl alcohol as a preservative. One of nature's best astringents, there is probably no better tonic or toner for skin care preparations. It is frequently used in products like after shave lotions, where it shows mildly styptic properties as well as helping to reduce razor burn and swelling through its cool soothing sensation. In skincare, Witch Hazel can be used as toner or in place of a cleanser. It is particularly beneficial for oil and problem skin through its more gentle properties.
INCI: Hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel) water (and) Ethanol

Rating: This product has saved my bath bomb line. I live in a rather humid area and could not get my bombs to dry out. Now I sub NDA's witch hazel for water et voila, problem solved. I also love that they offer it in 1 litre sizes so I don't have to order multiple tiny bottles.
