Benefits of Fo-Ti for Skin

The detoxifying herbal remedy Fo-Ti is deeply rooted in traditional Chinese healing practices, cherished for its restorative virtues. We explore the benefits of Fo-Ti for skin and uncover how this revered herb's legacy infuses our collection with nature's profound healing powers.

What is Fo-Ti Root?

Fo-Ti, scientifically known as Polygonum multiflorum,and traditionally in Chinese medicine as He Shou Wu, is a root that has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. Considered one of the cornerstone herbs in this ancient practice, the root is revered for its extraordinary healing capabilities and is a powerful tonic for longevity and vitality.  

When harvested, dried, and prepared through a traditional Chinese herbal process that often involves stewing with black beans, the root transforms into a powerful medicine. The name He Shou Wu itself tells a tale—translated, it means 'Mr. He's Black Hair,' named after a legend of an elderly black-haired villager whose vitality and youthfulness were restored, along with his black hair, after taking the herb.

Benefits Of Fo-Ti For Your Skin

Fo-Ti's beneficial effects on the skin are deeply rooted in its vast nutritional profile.

Natural Detoxification

This ancient plant remedy also aids in supporting the skin's natural detoxification processes. It helps clear the channels through which skin eliminates toxins, leading to a clearer, more vibrant complexion. Its purifying action is particularly beneficial for those challenged by blemishes and acne, as it helps to maintain a clear and balanced complexion.

Soothing Properties

Fo-Ti extract’s anti-inflammatory properties are incredibly soothing, making it a natural ally for sensitive skin. The herb’s calming qualities help ease redness and irritation. This makes Fo-Ti particularly beneficial for eczema or rosacea; it provides relief while nurturing the skin's healing capabilities, fostering a healthier, more resilient state over time. 

By incorporating Fo-Ti into your skincare regimen, you're tapping into centuries of herbal wisdom, offering your skin a foundation for lasting well-being and balance.

Helps To Balance The Skin

It also performs a wonderful balancing act. For those who experience dry patches or even oily areas, Fo-Ti can help normalize the skin's moisture levels, ensuring skin feels hydrated and balanced without feeling oily.

Supports Skin Integrity

Fo-Ti supports natural collagen synthesis, too. Its potent blend of nutrients helps combat the oxidative stress that can degrade collagen fibers. This not only helps slow down visible signs of premature aging but also aids in repairing and rebuilding the skin's structural integrity.

Protects Against Environmental Stress

The potent antioxidants present in Fo-Ti play a crucial role in shielding the skin from environmental aggressors such as pollution and harmful UV rays, helping to slow visible signs of aging.

We've harnessed the potency of Fo-Ti in Cleansing Milk and Purifying Luculent Mask–experience the healing properties of this wonder herb in your daily routine.

Cleansing Milk, a lightly creamy cleanser is formulated to purify while soothing your complexion. Alongside purifying Fo-Ti, we've infused this milky cleanser with a blend of harmonious elements like Lavender, Chamomile, and Rose, each selected for their calming and restorative properties. Lavender soothes and reduces inflammation, Chamomile offers its gentle healing touch for sensitive skin, and Rose water hydrates and refreshes, leaving skin soft and radiant. 

Our Purifying Lucent Masque is the perfect choice for deeper detoxification and revitalisation. This clay-based mask dives deep into the pores, lifting away impurities and dead skin cells with the help of Illite clay, renowned for its ability to soften and purify the complexion. We've paired Fo-Ti with Great Burdock, another treasure from the realm of traditional herbalism known for its detoxifying effects. 

Together, they create a potent formula that restores clarity and vitality to the skin, unveiling a luminous, refreshed complexion. This masque is a ritual in itself, offering a moment to reconnect and treat your skin to a purifying, rejuvenating experience, harnessing Fo-Ti's detoxifying and clarifying benefits.
