What is Cica?


What Is Cica?

Cica is actually a nickname for its scientific name: centella asiatica. Centella asiatica is a perennial herb that is primarily grown in Asia, and is known for its culinary and cosmetic usage. It has active compounds that serve as antioxidants, is a rich source of amino acids, and is known to have excellent hydrating effects to soothe irritated skin. Cica creams became cornerstones of the famous K-beauty ritual because of their alleged soothing benefits, and, in a case of everything old being new again, Western beauty brands are claiming it’s the hot new beauty ingredient.

Why Your Skin Needs It

If you have delicate, dry, sensitive skin that is easily irritated—red, stingy or itchy—cica can help calm you down. Cica is a leafy green herb rich in fatty acids, vitamins and amino acids. It’s been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine to treat redness and inflammation thanks to its effective healing and soothing properties.

Good To Know

Cica is also called Tiger Grass because tigers are known to rub it on their skin to help heal a wound.
