9th January 2020

If you’re skincare obsessed like us, you’ve noticed that Cica is the hottest ingredient right now. From beauty blogs to celebrity facialists, everyone is raving over this powerful green herb. Not to mention, our Superfood range is growing with brand new formulas that contain the one and only Biotransformed Cica.

They say knowledge is power, so we’re here to tell you everything you need to know about this special active (spoiler alert… It’s so much more than just a fancy name!). Grab your lab coat and safety goggles, your science lesson is now in session.

First things first: What exactly is Cica?

Also known as Centella Asiatica or Tiger Grass, this antioxidant-rich herb is recognized for its exceptional soothing properties. Historically used to help encourage healing, Cica exhibits powerful calming and soothing benefits, making it an ideal ingredient for skincare. In short, Cica leaves your skin cool, calm and collected.

You might be thinking, if Cica is so great, why do we Biotransform it? Funny you should ask. The process of Biotransforming Cica enhances the activity and power of our star ingredient, making it more compatible with the skin to absorb its nutrients, for a visibly calm complexion.
