Witch Hazel Hydrosol is one of the oldest forms of botanical treatments, so effective that it is commercially available in almost every drug store although, don't confuse the hydrosol, which is the distillate, with the commercial product which is an alcohol based product, not the pure distillate.  Witch Hazel has been sold for treating anything from irritated skin to varicose veins since the days of the medicine cart.  It has been sold in the United States for over 150 years.

This true hydrosol distillate is astringent and soothing. It has very soft herbaceous fragrance, making it a perfect choice for your men's skin care lines, especially shaving products.  Witch Hazel is the most astringent of all hydrosols, making it the best choice for acne treatments as well as mature skin.  The astringent nature also makes it one of the best choices for toning the skin.  Both oily and mature skin benefit from it's tightening and balancing properties.  Witch Hazel hydrosol is also one of the hydrosols with the lowest pH which makes it a suitable water replacement, or base, for toners geared toward skin refinement.
