Gotu Kola also known as Brahmi in Ayurvedic Medicine is considered the
herb of enlightenment and the most powerful of the rejuvenating herbs in Ayurvedic medicine. The main active ingredients in Centella asiaticaare asiatic acid, madecassic acid and asiaticoside. Many clinical reports document strong wound healing and collagen stimulating properties from Centella asiatica, as well as scar tissue reduction, anti-inflammatory actions and an ability to increase the level of antioxidants in newly formed tissue. Gotu kola is normally used in active ingredients that are tonics, body-firming products, wound healing and anti-aging skin care products. Gotu kola keeps the skin cells tough and makes it resistant to sagging. It increases tensile strength of the skin, repairs damaged tissue and reduces the appearance of stretch marks.
Its active constituents are pentacyclic triterpenoids which have regulating and activating functions, acting on the collagen present in many organs. In skin, the major components are collagens type I and II. Skin aging is related mainly to a decrease in type I collagen levels, which also plays a major role in wound healing. Asiatic Centella Extract is recommendable to formulate cosmetic products with vessel protection, venotonic and anti-cellulite activities. It is also recommendable to formulate cosmetic products for the protection of skin and hair against oxidative processes. It can be formulated in emulsions for wrinkled, chapped, reddish skins, aftersun products, lotions, gels and creams for body massage and toothpastes and mouth washes for atonic gums.
