With aloe vera formula. Since 1847. Natural Remedies. Cools. Refreshes. Cleanses. Henry Thayer, MD. These handy soft pre-moistened pads contain a gentle Native American formula for clean, soft, younger-looking skin. Now you can refresh and soften in one easy step, the old-fashioned way, naturally. Thayers developed this all-natural astringent for healthy looking skin. Witch Hazel can help to tighten pores and to smooth skin. Thayers proprietary certified organic witch hazel (derived from the bark) is not distilled, thereby maintaining all the beneficial natural tannins. Assay of hamamelitannin shows that witch hazel bark extract is 31 times richer in hamamelitannin than the leaf extract and 87 times richer than the stem extract (Resource: Vennat, B., Tannins from Hamamelis virginiana Planta Medica 54(1988):454-457). Cooling: After exposure to the sun or wind. Refreshing: After shaving, after a bath or shower or use for a massage. Cleansing: Gently cleans and softens all types of skin. No animal testing.
