A perennial tree, the Salix Alba is a member of the Salicaceae family,
also known as the Willow family. The Salix Alba grows up to 100 feet
in height if its growing environment provides everything it needs.
The flowers are yellow (male) or green (female) in colour.
The Salix Alba contains flavonoids, glycosides, tannins, salicin,
salicyl alcohol, and aromatic acids and aldehydes. The active extract
of the bark is salicin, a form of salicylic acid. That’s why it can
be used as a natural alternative to Aspirin. When used in treatments
designed for acne, sunburn, psoriasis and rosacea, this ingredient
performs with anti-inflammatory capabilities that soothe reddened skin
and the itchiness that can accompany these conditions. It helps to
minimize swelling, rosacea, a potent controller of sebum, it helps
to unclog oily pores, which in turn prevents acne. Willow helps to
remove dull, lifeless skin cells, also fights against wrinkles, skin
spots, helping to restore the radiance of the skin.
Purity Herbs uses Willow in many products, especially in Problem skin products.
