The History & Science Behind Centella Asiatica
Hydrocotly Extract (hydrocotyl Asiatica, Centella Asiatica) Centella Asiatica has been used as a medicine in India since prehistoric times. In the 19th century the plant and plant extracts were incorporated to the Indian pharmacopeia (Madaus 1938) and recommended not only for wound healing but especially for treatment of skin lesions, eczema, psoriasis, leprosy and lupus.
Historically, the entire plant is used medicinally, with harvesting occurring at any time during the year. Centella also contains a green, strongly volatile oil which is composed of camphor, cineole, and other essential oils. Centella oil also contains glycerides of fatty acids. More recent experimental pharmacological investigations, clinical observations and case studies have confirmed a positive contribution of Centella extracts to the healing of skin wounds, burns and ulcerous abnormalities in the lower extremities, to the cure of stomach and duodenal ulcers, and to the treatment of leprosy, lupus, scleroderma, and diseases of the veins. (Anonymous 1945a, b and Royer 1962).
Treatment with Hydrocotyl extract is useful in the prevention of scars Studies by Bosse (1979) et. Al. have suggested asiaticoside stopped the inflammatory phase of hypertrophic scars and keloidism. An earlier clinical study by Vadasz demonstrated that asiaticoside was useful in preventing new keloids in burned children (Vadasz 1972)
History and Folk Use
The physiological action leading to the cosmetic effect.Due to the action of Asiatic Acid, the fibroblasts are stimulated to form additional collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. These increase the organisation of the collagen, “tighten” the skin, and increase the elasticity. The outcome of Centella’s complex actions is a balanced multiphase effect on cells and tissues participating in the process of healing, particularly connective tissues. Enhanced development of normal connective tissue matrix is perhaps the prime therapeutic action of Centella asiatica.
