Centella asiatica or “gotu kola” has been used for centuries in traditional medicine for its antibacterial, antiviral, antihypertensive, diuretic, anti-ulcer and anti-inflammatory properties. Its most active compounds are asiaticoside, madecassoside, asiatic acid and madecassic acid, which promote the synthesis of collagen; regulate inflammation by normalizing the hyperproliferation of keratinocytes; and restore the natural homeostasis of the epidermis.
New evidence suggests Centella asiatica can address stretch marks, especially those that appear during pregnancy. These alterations typically occur in the connective tissue as a result of weight gain and hormonal changes that convey elastin, collagen and their components from the mother’s skin and veins to the developing fetal structures.
