A medicinal herb that can heal the wounds of tigers
There are two interesting stories behind the name and
nickname of the cica (centella asiatica), also called the "tiger grass."
One is that an injured tiger rolled around in
a field of cica (centella asiatica) and recovered from its injuries,
hence cica was nicknamed "tiger grass", and the other is that it was named
"centella asiatica", meaning "a plant that heals diseases.
" Both stories show that cica can heal wounds or illnesses.
“Madecassic acid” that helps skin regeneration
Cica has long been used as a “miraculous panacea”
by Native Americans and has been used in India and Brazil to treat wounds,
skin diseases, and asthma.
Particularly, Cica contains “madecassic acid,”
an ingredient that treats wounds by promoting collagen
synthesis in the wounded area with its anti-inflammatory action.
It is also rich in minerals and vitamins,
so it has an excellent effect on skin improvement
through skin regeneration.
Cica extract has excellent anti-inflammatory
and moisturizing effects.
Its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory
effects not only increase skin immunity but also slow down aging.
