Once you use them, you'll know why. What is Witch Hazel?
Witch Hazel (hamamelis virginiana) is found in damp, open woods and along stream banks from Nova Scotia east to Minnesota and south to Georgia. It is a deciduous spreading shrub or small tree with a smooth gray/brown bark. Its astringent properties are extracted from its bark, leaves and twigs. The natural astringent tannins reduce inflammation and stem bleeding. Native Peoples applied witch hazel poultices to ease swelling and ulcers. Herbalists consider witch hazel an excellent remedy for hemorrhoids and varicose veins, as well as cuts and bruises.
Thayers has been producing Witch Hazel since the middle of the 1800's. In 1855, the American Institute of New York Awarded Thayers a silver medal for excellence in preparation of fluid extracts, and a year later, the Massachusetts Charitable Mechanics Association awarded the company for the apparatus to produce these extracts. The Pharmaceutical Era, a periodical, published an article November 15, 1890: "...Fluid extracts were first brought to the attention of medical and pharmaceutical professionals by Dr. Henry Thayer, who was the first to tell physicians what fluid extracts were"...
Thayers added Aloe Vera to the soothing properties of Witch Hazel, nature's skin care. Thayers Original Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera Formula Astringent has been offered in bottles and in jars of moistened pads for decades. Over the past 15 years, Thayers has focused on bringing its Witch Hazel up to date to meet the current needs and preferences of the consumer. After adding Lemon Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera Formula Astringent and Cleanser, Medicated Superhazel with Aloe Vera Formula Astringent (for itches, rashes and burns), Peach Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera Formula Gentle Astringent with Vitamin C, Thayers revolutionized the world of Witch Hazel skin care in 1998 by creating the first Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera Formula Toners: Rose Petal with Vitamin E, Original for sensitive skin and the newest member of our family of products, Lavender with Vitamin E.

In 1847, Henry Thayer M.D., opened a laboratory on Main Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts to produce his newly developed line of herbal extracts for sale to the medical profession. Born in 1828, into one of Massachusetts' founding families, he was trained in the medical arts of his day by his physician father. His method produced, for the first time, standardized strengths, enabling physicians to regulate dosages accurately. The company, named Henry Thayer & Company, prospered and broadened its line of products and has been described as the largest manufacturer of pharmaceuticals in America at the time of the Civil War.

For anyone, like me, who has skin allergies or even very sensitive skin, this is a terrific lotion. I've been using it for years and it's the ONLY face lotion that does not cause any allergic reactions when I wear it. It has no perfume, just a light scent from the ingredients, does not clog pores, and is soothing to the skin.
Works as a makeup base or simply by itself. I put my SPF sunscreen over it in summer. Nothing fancy, just a great, non-greasy moisturizer!
