Tales from nature
The wetworm is a spontaneous shrub that grows in the temperate regions of North America and Eastern Asia, with tortuous branches that can reach the height of 4-7 meters. It belongs to the Hamamelidaceae family. Its beneficial properties were already known to Native American who used it to treat wounds.
In 1800 European settlers extracted the distillate from the leaves for solar irritations on the skin and eye, caused by excessive sun exposure. Thanks to the presence in the leaves and in the cortex of a special type of tannin (amamelinenin) is used in herbal medicine in lotions and creams with a soothing and astringent action.
It is used in the presence of fat and impure skin, with excessive sebaceous secretion and in the case of slight lesions of the skin and skin, due to due irritations and specific problems. It contrasts the widespread fragility by reactivating the microcirculation.
