Witch hazel is a plant. The leaf, bark, and twigs are used to make medicine. You may see a product called witch hazelwater (Hamamelis water, distilled witch hazel extract). This is a liquid that is distilled from dried leaves, bark, and partially dormant twigs of Hamamelis Virginian. It is one of my favorite skin care ingredients for a reason. It is a multi-purpose remedy that can help with a wide variety of skin conditions. It may also be used to treat blemishes already present on the face or other areas of the body. Apply witch hazel with a cotton ball or cosmetic pad to reduce irritation and appearance of acne or other inflammatory skin conditions.
Ingredient: 86% aqueous witch hazel extract and 14% alcohol which acts as a preservative.
This can be used directly on the skin but most people formulate with between 1-15% in a finished product. Do keep in mind this Witch Hazel contains alcohol and that alcohol may destabilize your emulsion to some extent. This can be fixed with formula adjustments. This witch hazel contains around 14% alcohol so the alcohol content might only start being an issue in an emulsion if you plan on using 40% or more Witch Hazel in your emulsion.
