Cica is the Korean Beauty Ingredient You’re Probably Seeing Everywhere

It’s definitely not easy to stay on top of the latest skincare trends. It seems like the cosmetics industry comes out with new, exciting ingredients all the time and we can’t even memorize all of them, let alone make them a part of our routine. 

The Korean beauty industry is a game-changer. It brought us so many amazing products and one ingredient we’ve been seeing everywhere is cica. What is it and what does it do? 

Centella asiatica, or cica for short, is a leafy green herb that’s been known for its wound-treating properties in Chinese medicine for centuries. A 2012 study proved that cica extract can help heal burns and incisions. It didn’t take long to use its powers in the beauty industry and today, we have plenty of skincare products with cica in them.

Cica has numerous benefits for your skin. It’s great for all skin types and can help treat acne, calm sensitive skin, help fight inflammation, fight dullness and dryness, etc.
