Rosacea: An Introduction

Rosacea Treatment: Centella Asiatica Titrated Extract

Studies have shown that wound chambers exposed to therapeutic levels of Centella Asiatica are characterized by increased dry weight, DNA, total protein, collagen, and uronic acid contents.

Peptidic hydroproline is also increased, increasing remodeling of the collagen matrix in wounds.

Asiaticoside exerted a preferential stimulation of collagen synthesis and was active at low doses only.

Titrated Extract of Centella Asiatica has a long history of use in Europe as a wound-healing drug. It is also known as Hyrocotyl(e).

The use of Centella Asiatica in the management of dermatological conditions has a long tradition in its native regions.
