Seborgo Witch Hazel
What is Witch Hazel?
Witch hazel is derived from a plant or shrub called hamamelis virginiana, and when the extract is mixed with purified water and other ingredients, like aloe or rosewater, it can be a hydrating natural toner for the skin. On its own, witch hazel can soothe itchy skin and inflammation and calm minor acne and other skin irritations.
Why Witch Hazel is good for your skin
The most convenient way to add witch hazel to your skin care routine is to use it as a toner: Wash and rinse your face with a gentle cleanser, then add a few drops of witch hazel to a cotton ball and apply it to your face
