Ingredient of the Month: Swertia Chirata

Ankaa: Ingredient of the Month: Swertia Chirata

At Ankaa, we love all-natural ingredients just as much as you do. Pampering your skin with nature’s ingredients is essential to keeping the tone, texture, and brightness in balance. This month, we chose to highlight one of our favorite floral ingredients, swertia chirata. This beautiful plant extract is featured prominently in our Time-Resist Ultra-Hydrating Moisturizer. Here are some quick facts about this powerful plant:

What is swertia chirata, anyway?

Swertia chirata is an annual plant native to the mountainous Himalyan region and is commonly used in Ayurvedic medicine. It contains antioxidants and other skin-healing properties that work together to support your skin’s natural beauty.

Age-Defyer Extraordinaire

You can call it super swertia! Swertia chirata promotes regeneration of new skin cells, which smooths out texture imperfections, evens tone, and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. 

As we get older, our skin’s production of keratin begins to slow down. This makes our skin thinner and more susceptible to forming wrinkles. But if lines are one of your concerns, don’t fear! We recommend applying our moisturizer around the mouth and eyes in particular. Swertia chirata creates a thicker skin barrier in these areas, which can dramatically reduce the appearance of wrinkles and dark circles. Say hello to your younger skin!

Plant Power!

Antioxidants found in the chemical makeup of swertia chirata fight against redness and inflammation. By using our moisturizer, you will quickly see the powerful effects of this mighty flower! Skin-regenerating cells and antioxidants work double time and reduce redness, uneven skin tone, and puffiness until you are left with beautiful, naturally enhanced skin. 

We at Ankaa love sharing our naturally sourced ingredients with you in our scientifically proven skin care products. Swertia chirata is just one of our vegan, all-natural, and cruelty-free ingredients. Try our moisturizer today to see nature’s beautifying power on your skin!
